Best Programming Languages

The Top Ten

1 Java

.Java is by far the best language. Despite people saying it's difficult to learn, most people who actually use the language say it's very simple. I learned it myself fairly quickly, I'm not an expert at Java but I can certainly get what I want out of it and I'm only a 15 year old amateur developer, or you could use the term "hobbyist", either applies. It runs on all operating systems, best to use for open source, has a wide range of functionalities all the way from PC games to literally any app on an android phone. Plugins in Unity, one of the largest used engines for Indie Game Development, are easily coded in Java despite the rest being scripted in C# which is a very similar language. Java is mainly built on English and logic, there is so much you can do with it and it is easy to start with it. Huge power lies in the hands of the developer coding in Java. That is why it's the best language.

Awesome, object oriented, highly secured and widely used and preferred language in IT industries.. :P Gotta say, it's "Godfather of programming language"

The _huge_ standard library makes development a lot quicker since you doesn't have to do much work yourself.

This is the same programming language that created our beloved Minecraft and Runescape.

It's the so simple, and is multiplatform!

2 C++

Jave could have been better, but it takes too much functionality out. A language without pointers shouldn't be number 1, because there is too much you can't do without them.

With C ++ and Qt framework, you can program high-performance cross-platform applications better than java or python applications.

Lightning fast and flexible but also quite ugly and complex.

Fast and flexible but as a beginner I prefer "C".

3 Python

All these languages are turing complete, so you can do anything computable with any one of them. But I could not find the beauty of python in any other language. Besides, it can be quite efficient in numerical computing.

It has a simple and elegant syntax that's easy to read. It is the best language out there for beginners, and it is very high in demand in the job space. You can do virtually anything with it.

I just love it, it's too easy and also powerful and have good resources.

It's easy, yet it's not a toy. I like it. Of course, look at my username.

4 Haxe

Doing web client and server (js/node), desktop (c++), scripting solutions (lua, python) using the same language (Haxe), ide (vscode) and workflow is just amazing..!

It's great for fast prototyping, and the wide range of targets gives me such freedom with one language for server, client, ui, mobile and desktop, all native. You'd think I was hired as an evangelist the way I push it when working with companies.

Write once PERIOD! So when the tech world is crazy about the latest hot target platform, just point the Haxe compiler to that target, because you can be sure that someone has added support for it.

by the way. I still need to see a faster compiler that Haxe

Mature, fast and feature-rich language with optimized and clean output (including static analyzer and dead code elimination).
Optional null-safety, pattern matching, GADT, abstract types, compile-time macros, static extensions, inline calls and other cool stuff.

5 Javascript

If not the best, then at least one of the most common language a lot of people, starting out as front-end developers, are beginning with.

This is the 2 in-demand programming language in the world, but good that it is the 4 best

Javascript is literally the best language.
Get outta here ya Python scum.

Facebook, google, reddit, twitter, youtube, all using it

6 C

Portable, fast, low level functionnality, easy to code once you understand it, and when compiled by gcc, undeniably the best. There's nothing you can't do with C.

All the other languages are based on this one.
C++ and Java are bloated. C is simple.

Small efficient powerful language simply awesome!

It has the most similarity with assembly language

7 C#

Easy to understand the code and easy to connect to the back end..

Very Good Language Easy to learn

You can make More designing

Best a programmer can get

8 Ruby

I love programming in Ruby. Ruby is my babe

Best language ever. Free your mind.

Because its magical.

RUBY IS MY FAVOURITE MAGICAL GIRL. BEAUTIFUL AND ELEGANT BABE.

9 Rust
10 PHP

Easiest language ever lol.. when it comes to developing web pages.. php comes in play and it's very vital language in sense to make a web page or design :P

It is the most widely used programming language used in the Web

I like it I weak in mathematics

Php7 is improving!

The Contenders

11 Scratch

You Can't beat the best, Scratch is the best language as it is very in depth and advanced. Most of you coders may not understand how to use Scratch but that is fine as you could learn to in a couple of years. Hands down, Scratch is the best and you can not compare it to your crappy C plus plus.

Easiest language since breathing was invented

The visual programming language. Quite unique

So easy, it should be 1st!

12 Assembly

Assembly is by far the most powerful language on this list

13 Haskell
14 Scala
15 Perl

Powerful for programming on an abstraction level just above bash, has a plethora of libraries via cpan!

Swiss army chainsaw of programming languages

Best language ever, you can do anything with it.

16 Scheme
17 BASIC

A very "Basic" language, easy to learn, easy to use.

18 Lua

The best fast, portable, functional, features, simple, and versatile.

Lua is a simple, intuitive language.

19 Logo

Good for grade 1 kids

20 Go
21 Matlab

It is a applicable programing language that is very very simple with use.

22 SQL

SQL with procedural features of pl/sql.. it's the back end of all the programming language.. without having knowledge of it, you are no where in the world and your front end programming language sucks.. Very Important language.. must learn it, if you like.. it's not that difficult to learn..

23 Objective-C

Language used by world's best technology driven company Apple... Nothing to say about...

This is the language that makes so much of our everyday lives better-siri, iPhone, ipad, iPod and many others.

A good choice if you want to be able to write "class" in C!

25 Pascal
