2016 was the year when Apple’s homegrown programming language Swift made waves and started growing at a fast pace. In 2017, Kotlin made similar strides after Google announced the official support for Android. Overall, it means that trends keep changing each year and the developers should adapt themselves accordingly.
Just earlier this month, a report from HackerRank focused on the shrinking gender gap in tech and helped us gain more insights into the programming language priorities of female coders. But, what about the overall popular and best programming languages?
In the past weeks, Stack Overflow released its own annual developer survey report. As it’s one of the biggest developer surveys around with more than 100,000 respondents, we’ll be taking its help in recommending the best programming languages and technologies.
It’s interesting to note that Stack Overflow decided to put programming, markup, and scripting languages together and prepare a combined ranking. It makes sense as nobody likes discussion over which type of languages are CSS or HTML.
Let’s take a look:
