I have explained ten of the most famous and usable programming languages that one should learn, but the question still lingers that which language is the best. Unfortunately, only you can answer this question. Apart from considering the stats that I mentioned in the last section, following are some of the factors that you should take into account while selecting a particular language for development.
- What the requirements of the application you want to develop are; web-based, desktop or mobile application?
- What your personal interests are; commercial or open source technologies?
- What the job market of the language is.
- Learning curve for a particular language.
Though these are some general guidelines, in the current market where job competition is at its peak, you must be proficient in at least one web-based language, one desktop based programming language, and at least one mobile platform, in order to distinguish yourself among contemporary programmers.
