Introduction

When you start learning to program, the obvious question that crosses your mind is what languages you should choose to enter the vast arena of big tech companies. The one thing we can guarantee you is that limiting your knowledge to a single programming language would not be the best option.There is some software developer blog we will discuss.

The point that you want to keep in mind is that every tech company, especially if they are a large company, would like to use every bit of technology. Not to mention there are a few languages that the firm uses primarily. If you are trying to enter one of the biggest companies, you must focus on what the organization is prioritizing in rather than the trending languages.

But what is more important than knowing what languages to hone is knowing the foundation of programming — data structures and algorithms. After all, programming is like working with various building blocks to make something awesome. If you’re not familiar with the building blocks, it’ll be difficult for you to reach a superb end goal — despite whichever path (language) you choose.

So, before you even begin reading the list of languages that major players prefer, you should hone yourself with the necessary data structures and algorithms skills. Not only will that make your journey of learning the language easy, but also be extremely worthwhile.

Having said that, here is the list of languages the tech-giants prefer and so should you:

JavaScript

Originally, JavaScript was introduced in 1995 to make the webpage interactive with the audience. It was developed within a brief period of 10 days by the developers. Despite being developed in a concise incubation period, JavaScript has managed to be one of the most famous programming languages of all.

When you build a webpage, the code usually starts with HTML and CSS, then comes JavaScript which is an essential part of the front-end development. It is often used to build graphical interfaces for the webpage. Alongside “pure” JavaScript there are some frameworks introduced in the past few years like Angular, React, jQuery, etc. which intend to make JS even easier.

Besides the fact that Javascript is a front-end development language, with the invention of Node.js it can also be used as a server-side application to build scalable networks. Also, it is considered to be the friendliest language because of its forgiving nature (literally speaking) as its syntax is super flexible, and because of its compatibility across major browsers. So, be it the web’s most famous sites like Facebook, Amazon, Youtube, and many more or the small tech companies; JS has proved to be one of the prior languages used everywhere.

Python 

Python is considered to be the most versatile language of all, and its simplicity makes it the best suited for beginners. It’s also believed to be the most straightforward one because of the readability and resemblance to the English language. Talking about the portability of Python, the biggest platforms like windows, mac support Python which even includes your PlayStation. You can also perform a cross-language operation with Python as it is extensible with .net and Java applications.

While starting the beautiful journey of programming; you should take note that Python is overwhelmingly powerful and flexible when it comes to choosing between languages. It is used as one of the backend languages for web development for instance if used with an open-source framework like Django; it becomes effortless to learn Python. Popular sites like Instagram, Spotify, and Mozilla use the same structure to develop their pages.

C++

The main concern of tech companies is to maximize their output using the software. Big firms like Google, Facebook, and Amazon are often described as having C++ culture as it becomes essential to work with C++ when the data complexity of the company reaches a certain level.

The fact that C++ has been around for more than two decades now proves that many of the existing software/ Programs have already been developed in this particular language. It does not have third-party licensing issues, is memory efficient, and is designed for both real-time and non-real-time performances.

Java 

The third language we are going to talk about is Java. Thanks to its versatility and pervasion, it is considered to be the most common language to be included in introductory programming courses.

In the world of computer programming, Java is one of the longest backbones existing for more than a period of 20 years. The core of the language stays on the “write once, run anywhere” philosophy. This theory means that you can write Java on any device, edit it in any low-level software, and then run it on any platform that supports Java. This indicates how Java is highly cross-platform compatible.

With a comprehensive variety of use cases, Java is one of the best choices for programmers who are looking for a flexible, versatile and modular language and consequently job possibilities.

Ruby 

For the developers, Ruby is one of the most fun languages to work with. What makes Ruby fun is it abstracts away the most complicated details of the programming. You can always start working from scratch and with fewer lines of code. Ruby was developed to bridge the gap between programmers and the underlying computing system. It reads like English and is therefore easy to understand.

The dynamic nature of Ruby makes it a preferable language for tech companies. It has a high level of built-in data structures and works as a ‘glue’ or scripting language between existing components. The flexible nature and the low maintenance costs are a few features that let it make to the list of languages companies prefer.

Furthermore, the forgiving nature of Ruby will let you run the program until you hit the problematic area. There is no need to panic while deciding what programming language to learn to enter the rapidly changing tech industry.
