Programming – 5 languages that are popular with programmers

Programming Languages -2
In the previous article we talked about programming languages in which I gave a description of programming languages.now  its time to know  about the top programming languages, their syntax and how they are used. So beginning with my favorite language that is Java.


Java is considered as the most popular language in computer world as it is used for many purposes like building server-side applications for games, it’s the core foundation for the development of android and its applications also it is portable. And if you remember the phones we used to have that were not smartphones, had applications which ran on java, whenever we used to open those applications a logo of java used to appear on the screen.

2. C/C++

Another cool language is c/c++, they are two languages but still the same, as the name tells everything that c++ is an extended version of C is a machine language and c++ is beside an object-oriented language too but not purely. Pure object-oriented language is only java. You can read about Object oriented programming(OOP) on internet because I’ll not be explaining about this in this article. C/C++ is an easy language and the basic language, it is also called as an A,B,C,D of all languages. This language is not used much for good-looking applications and creative things as it is only stick to hardware programming.


Another language, python, is using now a days. It is derived from c++ as I said earlier, c++ is the base of all languages. Python is free from the boundaries of syntax, it does not need rules to follow or can say it has a straight forward syntax, you can directly enter the required logic. Python is generally used for developing web-apps.


Ruby( also known as ruby on rails ) is a major supplier of web apps and it’s very popular due to its ease of learning, it’s very straight forward and powerful. This language is in very high demand these days.


JavaScript( not to be confused with java,its  very different) another popular language is used for developing websites, make a website more interactive. In this, a library called jQuery is used to make JavaScript work more easily.

    Informative and good to read. The easiness in the language makes it worth reading. 🙂

      yup i thought of it but these are a bit complex ones rather than m taking about he most common used and fundamental

    I have zero knowledge regarding programming and all… Thanks for updating.. Keep posting!!! ?

  • I’m a person who codes on C++ and Ruby.
    First, Ruby and Ruby on Rails they are completely different thing. Ruby is a language and Ruby on Rails is a web application framework written in Ruby. So, RoR is used mainly in web development mainly. You can do many other things in Ruby, it is a developer language. Infact, you can work on RoR after having just a basic knowledge in Ruby though you will face difficulties. Point is they are different things.
    Second, Java is not only purely object oriented, Ruby is also purely object oriented, even the variables you declare are nothing but objects of class. For example if I open my irb and give a command like x=5 and after that if I write x.class, it will give me the result “Fixnum”. This proves that every thing in ruby is in terms of classes and objects only.
    Third, C++ is not an easy language. From your answer, I got an idea that you’re just a beginner and you’ve used only if-else/loops only. Try working on this language more then you’ll get an idea. 😉
    Fourth, C++ cannot be used for hardware programming, it is just that you can play with the computer memory. That’s it. And it is still used in many projects. Chrome is partially coded in C++. It is also used in competitive programming as it has one of the fastest compilers.

    You are writing blogs, thats great, but giving wrong information is not good. So, do some research before writing, it will surely help you a lot in this blog writing. Do well. All the best. Enjoy writing.

      M also a programmer dont know about my level 😛
      Know about c,c++, ajax,jquery,bootstrap,javascript,html5,css3 thats all 😛
      Oops sorry m still learning how to work with ROR , i guess you dont mind that mr computer genius 😛
      And over to you 😀 for the ruby and java part i agree to the fact m new in that thanks for adding something new in my knowledge 😀
      And for the fact that i used C++ as a very simple language i forgot to mention this (PS only for the people who love to programm ) if you are able to find the perfect logic at the perfect time you won 😀 and mr computer genuis, worked on implementing C++ to Graphics as well as Data Structure from normal stacks to hashing 😀 to sorting ( PS: RADIX SORT too ) apart from that completed the algo of “8 queen problem as well as tower of henoi ) which is actually completed in MCA but please note m in bsc but still completed all that , so you must have got much idea m not a newbie in this field 😛 mr computer genius.
      C++ is simple for those who love to program 😛 also the basic idea behind writing that is to set a standard level for comparison among another languages 😀 .

      And i guess you missed this part i mentioned c/c++ 😛
      and your concetrated on c++ 😀
      hehe 😀
      All are not programmers , this basic idea behind writing this just to given them a idea what it will do and how it will 😀
      Actually thank you for taking you valuable time in commenting such a long one 😀

        I just saw 🙂 . You said c++ is not a hardware languages .mm actually computer genius do you know about TDR program?
        Its coded in c++ and if you run it gets burned to your system .. 🙂 ultimatly you have no option other than to drop your system in jumkyard . 🙂
        So also recommrnd you to do some research before sugesting some thing 🙂 thank you
