Nowadays computers have entered every industry and everyone is learning how to write a computer program. If you are trying to up your skill set for your career and you just want to give programming a shot maybe even just out of interest.
The first language you choose to learn is crucial. Whether you want to develop a mobile application, make games, work with AI or machine learning, get a certification for your programming knowledge or learn a new skill you need to choose the right programming language to learn.
The first programming language on our list is currently the most popular programming language on this planet “Python”. Python is my personal favorite and this is one of the easiest programming languages to learn because of its readability, it is so similar to English. If you have some basic knowledge about coding you can understand a python code without even knowing the syntax of python. Python is also a free open-source language and also python has amazing GUI based desktop applications which make it easy to interact with it. You can also find a huge amount of guides and resources and tutorials along with a massive community of programmers on online forums like stack overflow and it will make it really easy to work through problems or errors you face while you are working with python.
Python is also one of the most used languages in the implementation of fields of AI, Machine Learning, and Data Science which are really hot topics these days. Python is used to build popular services like the Blender, Inkscape, Abacus, YouTube, Quora, Pinterest, Instagram, and so on. The only downside of this language in my opinion is that it focuses only on the implementation part completely ignoring the underlying working mechanism of the programs it doesn’t start with the underlying program basic mechanisms that go on behind the program and that kind of knowledge can be really helpful in competitive programming, to overcome this you can just easily learn the basics of C or C++ or Java before or after you learn the python basics.
Java is one of the most common and in-demand programming languages used today. The language with object-oriented structure has become standard for making applications that can work regardless of platforms that are MAC, Windows, Android, or iOS. Today there are more than three billion devices running applications that are built with java. Java is widely used in web and application development as well as in big data. Java is also used in the back-end of servers for popular websites including Google, Amazon, Twitter, and YouTube. To learn java you need to learn some basic object-oriented structure as well and it has a lot of new requirements to get it. I personally don’t recommend starting with java.
Swift was developed by Apple for Linux and MAC applications. Swift is an open-source language and it is pretty easy to learn. Swift is a language that is mostly used in iOS development that is creating iOS apps and if you don’t have a mac it is really inconvenient to develop iOS apps so if you don’t own a mac just leave swift out of your list of languages just for now.
I hope now you have a clear idea about the initial path of your programming journey. I hope you have made a decision about which language will be your first weapon of choice. Now you can set out on your programming adventure. Let me know in the comment below about your choice.
