What Programming language should I learn first?
As we advance to 2019, it’s a good time to reflect on our top learning priorities for 2019. Before start talking about Programming Languages let me clarify:
- I’m not arguing that any language is objectively better than any other.
- I agree that developers should eventually learn more than one language.
Let’s dive right in with the first Programming Language:
Python has been a growing programming language and it shows no signs of disappearing. You’ll find it in web applications, desktop apps, network servers, machine learning, media tools and more.
You might find Python useful for back-end services and API’s, if you’re in security or Site Reliability Engineering. Python-based web development framework like Django, Pyramid and Turbo Gear have found more and more popularity.
If you haven’t heard Rust before, it’s a new system-level programming language that is changing the way we think about programming. Rust came in first place in the 2018 Stack OverFlow Developer survey for developer most loved and wanted language.
