If you are learning programming or you are considering to start programming, it is very important that you know what they are. Above all, you must be informed and choose the language that will work best for you. For this reason, we have made a list of the most used programming languages and we explain why. 

  • Learn Python

Python is one of the most popular programming languages, mostly because it is open source and also because it has an easy and readable syntax. If you are just starting to program, this is one of the best because the learning curve is very fast. This ease is given to us thanks to its huge amount of libraries, dice and functions that fortunately are incorporated in the language itself. In this way, we no longer have to learn to program in Python from scratch because certain tasks come to us thanks to its resources. 

  • Discover Java 

Java is a language widely used to create applications or processes for all kinds of devices. It is so broad that you can develop programs for both cell phones and home appliances.  One of the virtues of this type of language is that it remains one of the most necessary languages to not only develop applications but also to create software or even contribute to the world of video games thanks to frameworks. Moreover, over the years it is one of the most useful programming languages for the current job market.

  • Go deeper with JavaScript

JavaScript, believe it or not, has nothing to do with the previously mentioned Java language. The main difference is that Java is a coding language with a more general purpose of creating applications or developing software, while JavaScript is used in applications to make them more interactive or animate them. In other words, they are not related. To start programming, therefore, we must keep this difference in mind. And choose the one that suits you best. 

  • Create with Swift

Swift is a programming language created by Apple. It is intended for the development of iOS and macOS applications. It became open source a few years ago. Since then, it has become a powerful programming tool that can be used by both expert programmers and students just starting out.  And Swift is not only a language that is being exploited by companies or individual developers, now there are also academic centers such as universities that are starting to teach this language through free courses on iTunesU.

  • Animate with PHP

PHP is an open source programming language, and therefore no license is required. It is very popular mainly because there are a large number of web pages and web portals that work or are created with PHP. In addition, it is a very suitable language for developing websites with embedded HTML. It is mainly used to generate dynamic web pages. 

How to start programming?

It is important that if you have decided to enter the wonderful but complex world of programming, you keep in mind a few tips. Above all because it requires commitment and a high tolerance to frustration. 

  • Slowly but surely: learning to program is a skill that requires patience and above all calm and tranquility. If this is the first time you come into contact with a programming language, you should start with the most basic blocks and work your way up. 
  • Use all available resources: from private teachers to books or youtube tutorials. Learning is not easy and there comes a time when you will have to face a problem that you do not know how to solve. For this reason, it is important to have enough resources so that nothing stands in your way. 
  • Practice makes perfect: all programming problems will arise when you really start programming. And you will only learn to solve them when you practice and develop your own applications. 
  • Immerse yourself in the programming community: there are numerous resource libraries written by the developers themselves that can be used to learn or even to compare other creations. In addition, the community can also be a resource to solve doubts or questions that other programmers have already solved. More experienced professionals can be the key to your problems. 

Starting to program should not be an obstacle if you have the necessary tools to learn at your own pace. It is advisable to choose online learning because of the flexible schedule, convenience and above all the personalized study plans. Classgap has a large number of programming teachers to choose from who can teach you all kinds of different languages.
