When you talk about the top most fastest growing industries today, computer and programming language cannot be left behind. Since computer and IT industry is all about solving problems and making the world a better place, Computer Scientists has always been in a constant search of programming language that will solve a problem at hand and this has been making some programming languages go into oblivion.

 Research has shown that the 10 most demanding 2018 programming language according to job website  that if you are someone who wants to choose a career part as a programmer, below  are the list of programming language you can get your hand dirty with:

1. Java

Java is over 20 years old, used by millions of developers and billions of devices worldwide, and able to run on any hardware and operating system through the Java Virtual Machine. All Android apps are based on Java and 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies use Java as a server-side language for backend development. 

2. Python

Python is a general-purpose programming language used for web development and as a support language for software developers. It’s also widely used in scientific computing, data mining and machine learning. The continued growth and demand for machine learning developers may be driving the popularity of Python. It was used for developing such apps as Youtube, Dropbox, Reddit and Google.

3. JavaScript

JavaScript is used by over 80% of developers and by 95% of all websites for any dynamic logic on their pages. Several front-end frameworks for JavaScript such as React and AngularJS have huge future potential as IoT and mobile devices become more popular, so without any doubt we’ll see JavaScript increase in popularity anytime soon.


C++ is an extension of the old-school “C” programming language, C++ is usually used for system/application software, game development, drivers, client-server applications and embedded firmware. Many programmers find C++ complex and more difficult to learn and use than languages like Python or JavaScript, but it remains in use in many legacy systems at large enterprises.

5. C#

C# (pronounced “C sharp”) is an object-oriented programming language from Microsoft designed to run on Microsoft’s .NET platform and to make development quicker and easier than Microsoft’s previous languages. C# 7.2  was recently updated in November, 2018.  Which add several new features geared towards avoiding unnecessary copying. C#, like C++, is heavily used in video game development, so any aspiring video game developers would do well to learn both of them.

6. PHP

PHP, a scripting language used on the server side. Most developers use PHP for web development, either to add functions that HTML can’t handle or to interact with MySQL databases.

7. Swift

Swift – the main language for developing apps for macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS. This is a universal programming language for working with Apple products, which was developed not so long ago in 2014.

Its main advantage is speed: both at working on the project and when launching the ready app. It is for this advantage that it got its name over other languages (Its creators claim that it absorbed all the best from other programming languages).

8. Perl

 Perl 5 and Perl 6 are both chugging along and Perl continues to be popular for system and network administrators and as a glue language.

9. Ruby (on Rails)

It gained the utmost popularity as a tool for developing Web apps, and it was used for developing the server part of many popular worldwide services. You can often meet it in all sorts of ratings and lists with recommendations for studying.

The main purpose of the Ruby language, which follows the principle of “least astonishment”, is the creation of powerful and at the same time understandable programs, where it is not the program speed that is important, but the short development time, clarity and simplicity.

10. Objective

The Objective-C programming language is used to develop apps in the Apple ecosystem: for Mac OS X and iOS. Despite the emergence of a new programming language called Swift, the Objective-C language is still a popular choice among developers.

Moreover, its connection with Apple facilitates the job search for a specialist and gives you more opportunities to quickly get a high level of income.


The lack of talented developers has always been and still remains today an urgent problem for the market. Knowledge of any of the above mentioned programming languages and sufficient work experience open up really great opportunities for specialists.

Moreover, it is not necessary to be limited to only one language. You can always start gaining knowledge in different directions mastering new languages in theory and practice. All you need is desire, since there are more than enough opportunities for learning in our time.
