5 Programming Languages to Learn in 2022

New from the oven.

I'm quite sure that if you have been consistent with my blog, it would have come to your notice that I'm a lover of Tech and chess. In my previous post, I spoke about the benefit of fusing technology into any aspect of your life and the strong niche Tech is building in the world of today. If you haven't seen it, you should probably check it out Why Tech

In this post, I will talk about five programming languages to learn in 2022, since Tech is the new trend invoked. This could serve as a guide if you are thinking of going into programming as a hobby or a full-time career. You could pick one out of the five, and try to become perfect at it or if you are crazy about Tech, you could learn all.
As usual, sit tight as you read along and I'm sure you will learn a thing or two.

First, the idea behind this post is to talk about programming languages that have become popular and in high demand. So please if you feel it's not eternally true, you are free to express your opinion in the comment section.

Python

The first on our list happens to be the python, the most popular in the world today. It is quite interesting to know that if one surveys to find out the number of people in programming and what language they use, I wouldn't be surprised if you discover that most of the programmers make use of python. I remember when I started and I was so perplexed by the number of languages out there, so I asked a couple of coding buddies what language should I start with, and they all told me python because the syntax was completely easy to understand, so I followed their advice.

Fast forward to the present day, I've come to realize that many upcoming programmers choose to start with python because of its simple syntax, which has gradually become its strong suit, and I must add the syntax are truly simple if you understand English.

JavaScript

Moving on, JavaScript has to make it to the list cause there's probably no way we could talk about programming languages and not make mention of big boy JavaScript.
This is a programming language that has grown to become popular among web developers and backend developers because of its ability to provide interactivity to users. Ever wondered why some websites are very easy to use and access without any guide, that's because of the underlying power of JavaScript and probably the User Interface as well.

Java

The third on the list is the language I love to call the younger version of JavaScript just because the spelling is the initial letters of the word J-A-V-A-S-C-R-I-P-T

Wikipedia describes the language as

is a high-level, class-based, object-oriented programming language that is designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is a general-purpose programming language intended to let programmers write once, run anywhere (WORA),meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need to recompile.

What all this means is that codes written in Java can be run on platforms that can support Java. In addition, this programming language is mostly used for mobile app development, mostly on Android devices.

React

React is a programming language that happens to be a framework of JavaScript and is maintained by Facebook. This simply means if you understand JavaScript, then using React should be a lot easy. Oops, I forgot to mention an interesting fact about learning programming, the fact that when you learn one, it becomes easier to learn another. This is because you are no longer starting from scratch anymore.
Wikipedia also describes the language as

React (also known as React.js or ReactJS) is a free and open-source front-end JavaScript library[3] for building user interfaces based on UI components. It is maintained by Meta (formerly Facebook) and a community of individual developers and companies. React can be used as a base in the development of single-page, mobile, or server-rendered applications with frameworks like Next.js.

This goes to explain that React can be used in building a much more interactive web or app because the language is mainly of UI components. But when the need for extra functions arises, other libraries have to come into play.

C++

Last on the list for today is C++. This is a programming language that was developed Bjarne Stroustrup. It's a programming language that was created as an extension of the C language and this language includes or rather makes use of object-oriented, generic, and functional features to help in facilitating low-level memory manipulation. This language is used in performing complex tasks by simplifying them and the use of data is a huge part of this language.

In conclusion, these are the languages I feel are in high demand and learning can be life-changing for anyone because of the job opportunities that come with it.

Thanks for reading and see you soon.

I have learnt a bit here and there but not so much. Java script seem to be the hardest.

Which one are u learning now?

I'm currently working on C++ and JavaScript is truly a bit difficult especially when you get to use complex syntax.

Python is good for beginners because of its simple syntax but a lot of people recommend starting with C because it teaches you the very basics of programming and how things work under the hood, which popular languages like python and JavaScript won't teach you. I started with C and transitioning into python and JavaScript was very easy for me because the syntax and concepts are very similar (C gave birth to both of them).

Yeah, that is another underlying secret most people don't know yet. They feel C is probably too complex but in the long run, it teaches you the rudiments of programming.

Exactly my point. I found it too complex when I started but now I am glad I started with it

Very good post! Definitely nowadays those programming languages are really important.

Thanks for the compliment.

On the contrary, Java is older than JavaScript and they are not directly related to each other.

That's why I said

I love to call the younger version of JavaScript just because the spelling is the initial letters of the word J-A-V-A-S-C-R-I-P-T

Good summary. Most of this information is known though, so your insights are the most relevant part.

The first on our list happens to be the python, the most popular in the world today.

Isn't it Javascript? Last time I checked it out, Javascript was the most popular language out there. We can check it in the Github statistics, unless by "popular" you mean something more specific.

React is a programming language that happens to be a framework of JavaScript and is maintained by Facebook.

If it's a framework, then it's not a programming language. It's sort of like if you say "The Oxford Learner's Dictionary is a natural language that happens to be a framework maintained by Oxford". No, it's not a language, it's a dictionary.

Intriguing insight. Well noted but when I said popular it was coming from a statistic based on my region.
