We are almost halfway through 2017, and it’s always exciting for web developers to know which programming languages have been the best picks lately in the programming world. In this blog, I am unveiling 10 most preferred languages in 2017 so far. Please note that the top 10 languages I am going to list below are strictly based on GitHub’s recent data and TIOBE Index for June 2017 - the most credible sources to track the popularity of programming languages.

Let’s Begin!!!

Java

Java, an open-source language that’s been around since the 1990’s, allows developers to “write once, run anywhere”. So, you can run compiled Java code on all platforms without having to recompile. Java is the product of Oracle corporation and is widely used for creating server-side applications, video games, mobile applications and smart TV applications. Since both large and small businesses use applications written in Java, this language is high in demand and ranked among the top ones by Tiobe Index and Github.

Java is also used by most Android app developers. Some top Android app examples of Java are Temple Run, Candy Crush Saga and Angry Birds. It doesn’t end here as Java is also used everyday by many airlines, government agencies and Fortune 500 companies.

Java’s Growth in 2016: 63%

Python

First released in 1991, Python is a widely used open-source, high-level, general-purpose and dynamic programming language. Python has witnessed most of its growth in the past five years (7.0%). Python is popular among developers for readability and easy learning. Whitespace indentation in Python allows developers to delimit code blocks without using curly brackets or keywords, which emphasizes code readability. If you are new to programming, you can pick Python as it is one of the most beginner-friendly programming languages.

Some of the top applications that have been built using Python are YouTube, Reddit and Instagram. You can also use Python for scientific computing, web development and 3D rendering.

PHP

PHP is also an open-source and very popular programming language used for server side scripting. Although PHP was primarily designed for web development, it’s also used as a general-purpose programming language. PHP first came out in 1994 and originally stood for personal home page. It’s now taken as the abbreviation for Hypertext Preprocessor. Since PHP has a low learning curve, new programmers can also develop web applications in quick time.

PHP powers more than two hundred million websites, including the popular ones like Yahoo, Facebook and Wordpress. Developers can easily deploy PHP on most web servers on almost every operating system and platform.

PHP’s Growth in 2016: 43%

JavaScript

JavaScript is a high-level, dynamic, and interpreted programming language, which is widely used to make web applications and add interactive elements to the webpages. The programming language allows developers to create animations and have better control over the web interface. All modern web browsers support JavaScript without forcing you to install plug-ins.

JavaScript has been the top language on the TIOBE index for a few years, but it’s currently ranked seventh in the list of top 50 programming languages. For many developers world over, JavaScript is the numero uno language for front-end development. However, the advent of Node.js made it possible for developers to use JavaScript for backend as well.

JavaScript’s growth in 2016: 97%

C

C, a general purpose programming language, is considered to be grandfather of all modern languages. Emergence of C dates back to 1970s and it has served as the base of many of today’s languages such as Java, C++ and Python. Although learning curve of C is large, using C makes it easier for developers to pick modern languages like Objective C, C++, PHP, etc.

C helps developers get complete control over software and is considered to be the backbone of many of today’s most popular operating systems such as Windows, OSX, and Linux. Flexibility of use for memory management is one of the top virtues of C. The TIOBE Index currently ranks C at the second position, whereas Github ranks it at the ninth position.

C++

C++ is a general purpose programming language which could be considered as C with more features. In contrast to C which is used more for operating systems, C++ is used for higher level applications like accounting software or video game engines. C++ also offers support for object oriented programming, which is not the case with C. Many developers see C++ as the best pick for building web browsers, computer graphics drivers and financial trading algorithm.

Call of Duty, Halo, and Fifa are some top examples of C++. Since C++ is robust and fast, many Wall Street firms use it to trade thousands of shares in no time. Using C++ will help you get the qualities of both high-level and low-level programming language.

C++ growth in 2016: 43%

Ruby

Ruby is a general-purpose and object oriented programming language that gives rise to fast development and use of fewer lines of code. Although Ruby came out in 1990s, it rose to fame after the emergence of Rails, a high-in-demand framework for Ruby. Ruby on Rails is apt for extremely intuitive web development. A dynamic type system and automatic memory management are other virtues of Ruby. Mostly startups and mid-sized businesses use Ruby on Rails because Rails is often used as a website prototyping language.

Similar to Python, Ruby is also easy to learn. Ruby is ranked fourth on Github and 10th on the TIOBE index. Metasploit and Twitter are two popular examples of Ruby.

Ruby’s growth in 2016: 66%

C#

C#, developed and released by Microsoft in the early 2000s, is a general purpose, object-oriented programming language. C# is an evolution of C and C++. Therefore, if you have previous experience of using C and C++, learning C# will be much easier for you. C# is used for numerous Microsoft products that are powered by .NET framework. You can also use the programming language for standard Windows software development and server side web applications.

C# is not as popular as Java or PHP is, but it’s been rising in popularity every year since its release. Since Microsoft is the creator of C#, the language is used to run several Windows products, like Bing and MSN.


C# growth in 2016: 88%

Swift

Swift, a product of Apple Inc., is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm, compiled programming language that debuted in 2014. Apple developed Swift for iOS and OSX applications.. Ever since Swift came out in the tech market, it has witnessed tremendous rise in demand. Swift could be a good choice for creating an intuitive app since it adopts the best of C and Objective C. Swift is minimalist, powerful and simple.

Swift’s growth in 2016: 262%

GO

Go is an open-source programming language created by Google in 2007 for simple, efficient, and reliable software development. GO is also popular for web servers, APIs, minimal web application frameworks, etc. Although GO is currently ranked 15th on the TIOBE Index, I have included it in the list considering it was ranked 65th on the TIOBE Index a year ago. The language has skyrocketed in popularity and is now ranked 10th on Github.

With GO, you get C-like semantics, modern data structures, memory management and high performance with fast compiled binaries. TIOBE Index also announced Google’s GO as the most popular programming language of 2016.

 Digitally Empowering Villages  

b2ap3_thumbnail_new-logo.jpg
A developing country’s progress is dependent on the growth and advancement of its rural regions. In India, where almost 70% of the population dwells in villages, this dependency blows up further. Merely recognizing this fact isn’t enough. Concentrated efforts have to be made towards the well being and development of the rural community. But India's vastness makes it impossible to physically manage and administer every remote village. Hence, it is essential to maximize the outreach of technology in order to connect and record data from villages all over the country. Keeping this in mind, our Web Development Company supported our knowledgeable client in realizing his idea, of a web based platform to empower the rural community, through PanchayatsofIndia. It is a pilot project to collect and record activities and grievances of villagers from the Panchayats in the Nagaur (Rajasthan) region on a daily basis.
b2ap3_thumbnail_http_link.png
The project focuses on linking rural communities through mobiles, computers and the internet. By supporting the initial technological transition, our client aims to make the rural community technologically independent. The idea is to help each Panchayat of Nagaur set-up its own website. The main website leads you to tertiary sites of the Panchayat of your choice. These specific sites depict the atmosphere of specified Panchayats through audios and videos.

Registering Rural Records

PanchayatsofIndia aims at enhancing the web presence of extremely remote areas. This will provide a communication channel for isolated communities to communicate their grievances to higher levels of administration. It will also help convey schemes and programs offered by NGO’s among the community members.  Finally it will help communities in analyzing and recording the problems in their specific area for future reference.
 
b2ap3_thumbnail_response.png
It took a lot of detailed research to bring this concept to realization. Our team had to visit the Nagaur area to find out project feasibility and collect relevant data. We achieved this in association with our client. Our client built a team of 40 volunteers who were supposed to visit each village, meet people and collect relevant data. Our developers ensured proper data collection, by developing a customized mobile application, which would comprehensively record data and videos. This made the entire process paperless.

Due to lack of proper internet connectivity, we had to set up high connectivity hubs in Nagaur for volunteers to submit the collected data. This data was integrated with the Web application setup on the Amazon servers. The amount of data was so huge that we had to develop customized uploader programs to synchronize it to the website. These programs were specifically used at the hub to upload and sync the data.

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_data.png
The web application was created using .Net MVC2 and SQL Server. The development of RFP to Design, Architecture, Development, and Testing of complete application was handled by our company.

The Software Squad

Our squad of 1 Team Lead, 1 Web Architect, 4 Web Developers, 2 UI Designers and 1 Quality Analyst delivered this application in 6 months.

Building Digital Bridges

This platform acts as a bridge between the rural and the urban communities. While the rural get to share their struggle for basic amenities with their splurging urban friends , the educated urban get an opportunity to assist their fellow rural citizens. People from cities provide vital information to improve the living conditions of the rural communities. Details pertaining to education, healthcare, agriculture and development sector which were otherwise impossible to convey to remote areas can be conveyed through audios and videos.  
Our Web Development Company applauds our client’s wonderful initiative and takes pride in being a part of it. We hope that this pilot project is adopted across the country to bridge the gap between rural and urban India.
