Which are the top 15 most used programming languages?

Technology has moved on very vast from simple basic HTML coding to the coding of complex logic for creating high end apps. As the common people are getting more and more fond of gadgets and other forms of technological conveniences. The real essence of coding and programming are best understood by the engineers or the developers only, and the common man just enjoys the technological boom as the end user. However, even for the end user and especially for the programmer it is very important to stay updated with the latest of programming languages in the IT industry. While for the common man its just enough to know the names, ofcource, the programmer needs to be an expert on coding. Here check the current 15 programming languages that are mostly used.

1) SQL
SQL is a one type of special-purpose programming language that is used for managing data in database management system (RDBMS). SQL compromises a data manipulation and a data definition language. It is based on algebra and tuple relational calculus. The SQL programming is very much in demand, so is the programmer who has profound knowledge of this.

2) Java
Java language basically compromises different computer software products. It carries the specification of Sun Micro systems. After merging with Oracle Corporation, the two together provide a system used in the development of application software that is deployed in a computing environment with cross-platform.

JavaScript is a computer programming language which was originally employed along as a part of web browsers. The purpose of this was to initiate client-side script interaction with the users. Other applications were also facilitated such as control over the browser, alteration of the displayed document content, communicate asynchronously. Currently a Java script has become most popular in development of games and desktop applications.

4) C++
C++ is a general-purpose programming language. It is most often considered as the intermediate-level language. It is also one of the most commonly used programming languages that is used in a variety of operating systems or other hardware. It is majorly used in the development systems software, 
 application software, embedded software, device driver, and client applications, high-performance serve and gaming software, etc.

5) XML
XML is the acronym of Extensible Markup Language that describes a set of rules meant for encoding of documents in a format that readable to both human and machine. XML is preferred as a programming language because it supports simplicity and high usability over the Internet. It also forms the basis for RSS and XHTML.

6) C#
C# is considered as a multi-paradigm programming language, developed by Microsoft as apart of its .NET initiative. It encompasses programming discipline data can be identified by the following characteristics:
  • Strong typing
  • Declarative
  • Functional
  • Procedural
  • Generic
  • Object-oriented (class-based)
  • Component-oriented
7) Python
Python is a general-purpose which is widely used for high-level programming. The language mainly emphasis on code readability by allowing the programmer to express the language syntax in fewer lines of code. This makes the language more code readable as compared to C language. Python is being used even by notable players like Google and NASA owing to a high level of clarity in the codes. The very popular data management software drop box has been written using this language.

8) C Language
C as a programming language is perhaps the most heard one. It is kind of all time programming languages. In fact many other programming languages such as C#, D, Jave, Go, JavaScript, LPC, Limbo, Perl, Python, PHP etc has been borrowed from Java directly or indirectly.

9) Perl
Pearl identifies a set of two high-level general-purpose programming languages called Perl 5 and Perl 6. These are two interested and dynamic language that shares features common with another programming language such as C, AWK, and sad. The language supports powerful text processing facilities that too without interruption of any data-length limits. In the 90s, Perl got very popular for its ability to create CGI scripts. Apart from being used in web development, this is also used for building system administration, desktop apps, games, Bioinformatics, etc.

10) HTML
Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the most integral markup language that is used for creating web pages. Like XML, it also readable by both human and machine. The coding for website design is done using the HTML tags. The tags are not displayed in the browser but the browser displays the website reading the HTML document only.

11) PHP
PHP is the server-side scripting language, which also holds its significance in domain web development. But it also used sometime as the general-purpose programming language. The large number of websites that deal with every day are all powered by PHP only. In fact there are around 20 million websites that run on PHP including Facebook and Wikipedia.

12) Objective-C
Objective-C is an object-oriented, general-purpose programming language. It is almost a 30 year old programming language. Apples’ iOS and OS X are programmed using this language. The language is very much in demand in the programming industry.

13) AJAX
AJAX acronym for Asynchronous JavaScript And XML. As clear from its name, this programming language that is used for creating asynchronous web applications. Using Ajax application data can be sent or retrieved from a server asynchronously that too without disturbing or altering the display and behavior of the existing page.

ASP.NET, developed by Microsoft is a Web application framework . It is used in the Web development, especially in the creation of dynamic Web pages. The ability of ASP.NET to create dynamic websites and web applications keep it very popular among developers.

15) Ruby
Ruby is almost a 20 years old scripting language that is still very much in demand for features like dynamic and general-purpose. It is an object-oriented programming influenced by the syntax of Perl, Eiffel and Lisp. The language supports multiple programming paradigms and has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management.
