All popular languages tend to share core concepts and coding structures. Effort spent learning one language can likely be applied to future languages.
Higher-level programming languages are easy to understand and are used to write programs that run on any computer. Examples include:
Lower-level programming languages such as C can be more difficult to understand but tend to execute faster.
Object-oriented languages enable us to design your software as objects. Objects are defined with data as well as methods (or actions). Examples include:
Some languages are more popular for certain applications and interests, such as Python for data analysis or C for robotics.
There are three main languages for web development:
Python is known for being easy to learn and is used for tasks such as:
Java is a general-purpose programming language used primarily within large company projects.
C and C++ are powerful programming languages built around performance. While C is popular for device and operating system programming, C++, built on top of C, is a more general-purpose language.
