Top 10 Fastest Growing Programming Languages Developers Should Consider in 2022

The languages you know in coding can have a great influence in determining your career path

IT world has seen thousands of programming languages so far but only a few hundred of them are currently considered by developers as viable ones and out of them only chosen few stand out for their universal or unique functionalities. As a software developer one may not know to code in all the languages but the languages you know coding can have a great influence in determining the career path. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says that the employment of software developers will grow by 22% in 10 years (2019 to 2029), which is much faster than the average for all jobs. As use cases of programming languages vary, we present you top 10 fast-growing programming languages.

1. Python

It is one of the most popular and widely used languages, known for its versatility and easy-to-understand syntax. It is also one of the high-level modern programming languages with dynamic semantics.

2. Java

Java is a classic programming language with a rich Application Programming Interface(API) to incorporate classes, bundles, interfaces, and so on. The features help in developing applications without understanding the inside executions.

3. Javascript

Javascript is a multi-paradigm and dynamic language, which supports object-oriented, imperative, and declarative styles. Therefore, this is a functional programming language. It is used both for web pages and non-browser environments.

4. C#

C sharp is chosen by leading companies such as Microsoft (who is also a developer of this top programming language), Delivery Hero, Accenture, Stack Overflow, ViaVarejo, and many others. With great integrity and interoperability, C sharp is considered the language for cross-platform development. It is some to use and faster for execution.

5. R

This programming language is much less popular among specialists and is used by only 5% of professionals in the world. R is basically developed for statistical analysis, visualization, and other data science applications. Compared to Python, it has a higher application window in data science.

6. Typescript

It is essentially Javascript with syntax for types. Developers find the code easy to read and understand and give efficient tools of any scale. In particular, TypeScript provides a JavaScript IDE and some practices, including static checking.

7. Swift

Mainly used in mobile app development, Swift has become compatible with iOS too. It has features for enhanced readability, and error detection and is faster than languages like Objective-C and Python.

8. Scala

Scala is a concise and high-level programming language that combines functional and object-oriented programming.

Features like code complexity optimization, concise notation, and compatibility with Java libraries, make Scala the language sought after.

9. Ruby

Though the number of developers who choose Ruby is lower than multi-purpose JavaScript and Python, its simplicity and efficiency scores. It has elegant code and it allows the developers to maintain reference counts in extension libraries.

10. Objective C

A programming language largely used by apple to develop OS X and IOS operating systems and applications is more flexible than any other procedural language. It has an easy syntax and is suitable for completing large tasks, unlike other procedural languages which are suitable for small tasks.
