In this digital world, one of the most viable jobs in the market today is that of a computer programmer. Their expertise is required in countless fields in every industry. Programming creates software and applications that help computer and mobile users in daily life in every possible venue – from banking, shopping, gaming, storage, photography to nearly every daily activity with your phone & computer. Programming speeds up the info and yield forms in a machine and is fundamental when one needs to automate, collect, manage, calculate, and analyze the processing of data and information accurately.

Due to all these reasons, it's really important to learn how to use programming languages in our daily life, and why computer programming will always be a popular choice for career.
Several questions emerge when choosing a programming language, like whether you want to develop an application, or you just want to learn new skills. Let's help you out to take a right decision. We have listed the languages that are in demand right now among employers.

1. Python
Python is without a doubt at the top of this list. Because it is fast, easy-to-use, and easy-to-deploy, it is learnt first and is being widely used to develop scalable web applications.

YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, SurveyMonkey are all built-in Python. Backed by the excellent library support provided by Python and a large developer community, it has become popular with startups that use Python as their primary backend stack, leading to a huge opportunity for full-stack Python developers and is highly recommended for beginners.

2. Java
Java has been a popular choice in large organizations for decades. Java is widely used for building enterprise-scale web applications, because of its extremely stability. Java is the language that you should learn if you are looking for a development based job at a large organization.

Java is also necessary in Android App Development. Almost any business today needs an Android Application thanks to the depth of smartphone penetration and the absoluteness of constant connectivity of users. This has created a huge opportunity for Java developers especially since Google has created an excellent Java-based Android development framework called Android Studio.

3. C/C++
C/C++ is the foundations of programming, with nearly all low-level systems such as operating systems, file systems, etc. written in C/C++. And to be a system-level programmer, C/C++ is the language you need to learn.

Due to its stability and extreme speed, C++ is also widely used by competitive programmers for its features STL - Standard Template Library (a pool of ready-to-use libraries for various data structures, arithmetic operations, and algorithms) and a very strong library support.

This makes it an ideal choice for the High-frequency trading community (stock markets, traders) as well.

4. JavaScript
JavaScript is a "frontend" programming language and is widely used to design interactive frontend applications - for example when you click on a button which opens up a popup; the logic is implemented via JavaScript.

Currently, most organizations, especially startups are using NodeJS which is a JavaScript-based run-time environment which lets developers use JavaScript for server-side scripting-running scripts server-side to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the user's web browser (Chrome, FireFox etc). This means that with JS, you can use a single programming language for server-side and client-side scripts.

Jobseekers looking for that cool tech job at their preferred start-up should seriously consider learning JavaScript.

5. Go programming language
Golang, popularly called "GO" is proprietary to Google, and is a programming language built by them. For a lot of companies that rely heavily on distributed systems Go provides excellent support for multithreading. Go is popular in the companies and startups of the infamous Silicon Valley in the US, but is yet to be adopted by Indian companies/startups. For jobs in companies that specialize in core systems, the professional should master Golang.

6. R programming Language
R programming language is one of the most commonly used programming languages for Machine Learning & Data Analysis as it provides an excellent framework and built-in libraries to develop powerful Machine Learning algorithms, it is extensively used in general statistical computing as well as graphics.
As a result of it being quickly adopted by enterprises, jobseekers looking to be part of the "Analytics" team of a large organization should definitely learn R programming language.

7. Swift
Swift is the programming language used to develop iOS applications (Apple products). It is undeniable that iOS-based devices are becoming increasingly popular, and in neck-and-neck competition with Android based mobiles. This has created a huge market for professionals who use and deploy Swift programming.

8. PHP
PHP is one of the most popular backend programming language, even as it faces tough competition from Python and JavaScript. Despite this fact, the market still needs a large number of PHP developers and this is why it is essential for those jobseekers who wish to join a firmly establish global organization as a backend developer to learn PHP programming.

9. C#
Developed by Microsoft, C# is a general-purpose programming widely used for backend programming, building games (using Unity), building Window mobile phone applications and several software and programming, especially those with a fully integration with the .NET library.

MATLAB, used widely in the Computer Vision and Image processing industry is a statistical analysis tool that is used in various industries for Data Analysis. Due to its high coding efficiency and productivity, it doesn't require a compiler for execution and is used extensively in developing scientific research applications.

For Startups, Python and JavaScript are essential languages, for example companies that use Django (Python), Flask (Python), and NodeJS (JavaScript) as their backend frameworks.

In the corporate environment, Java and PHP are popular as web-backend framework, which is why many organizations use Spring (Java) and Codeigniter (PHP).

R and MATLAB are required languages in the Data Analytics world.

C and C++ and Golang are the top choices in building low-latency and scalable systems.

We hope this gives you, the jobseekers, a fair idea in to & which programming language to learn first" by now. Please comment if you have further questions or need any assistance in finding jobs related to these fields!
