Most in Demand Programming Languages 2021
10 years ago, every second tried to become a lawyer or economist. Today, every second tries his hand at programming. Why? Because this demand for good programmers is growing exponentially. It’s also a high paying job.
However, according to Hired reports, it is the most popular and sought after in all interviews.
Despite its growing popularity, Go Lang is not in demand among the Github community. So, according to Octoverse 2019, it is not among the top 10 programming languages of the last decade. In the list of fastest growing languages, it takes 10th place.
Go's most striking feature is simplicity. A developer can write efficient code in a few days. Go also has an integrated Garbage Collector. This means that the developer cannot worry about memory management. Typically, Go developers spend 20% of their time writing code and 80% on its support.
All these facts have become a catalyst for demand for relevant specialists. In addition, Google announced the work on Go 2, which should be even more stable. Therefore, in 2021, Go will be on the list of the most popular programming languages.
Kotlin was developed by the Jet Brains team in an attempt to find "something better than Java." Many experts claim that the goal has been achieved. Like Go, Kotlin cannot be called the trendiest programming language. But statistics show that demand is growing.
In addition, the number of Kotlin users in the Github community is growing incredibly fast. According to a report from Octoverse, Kotlin ranks 4th among fast-growing programming languages.
TypeScript was used as the main programming language for the Angular2 + SPA structure. In 2018, Vue.js team also announced that it will use TypeScript to develop new versions of its framework.
4th place in the rating of Hired:
It is widely known for adding interactive elements to web applications and browsers. Most front-end developers prefer JS. However, the Node.js runtime provides significantly more features than just front-end development.
To Python's relevance issue puts an end the fact that it is considered the best in machine learning, Deep Learning, artificial intelligence, web development, and data analysis. All these areas today are developing the most. Accordingly, the demand for Python-developers in the coming years will grow several times.
Yes, these are three different programming languages. But, as we said, the main focus is the scope. C/C++/C# are equally often used for game development. As we know, the gaming industry is very huge and is gaining more and more momentum every year.
According to Unity research, specialists who know these three languages will become the most popular in the field of game development.
Do you know the global reach of the gaming industry? About 50% of the world's population devotes time to video games every day. Requirements for the quality of games are growing, therefore, qualified developers are always needed.
Also, all three of these programming languages occupy fairly high positions in all ratings. So, in the Hired list, they were in 13-15 places.
Finally, I would like to pay attention to Solidity. Today, this programming language is not the best version of Stackoverflow or Octoverse. Moreover, it did not get into the top 10 Pypl and TIOBE. Similarly, Solidity did not become one of the most sought after versions of Hired.
You will probably think: “Why then is Solidity on this list?”. As we said at the beginning, one of the key factors is the scope. When interviewing Stackoverflow regarding Blockchain development, most often respondents mentioned this development language.
Combine this with the fact that the demand for Blockchain specialists over the past year has grown by 517%. This technology is completely new, because it is not yet very popular. But the benefits of the blockchain and statistics indicate that in the coming years the situation will change radically.
Accordingly, the demand for qualified developers will increase. Solidity is the best for Blockchain today. Therefore, in 2021 the demand for specialists will be very large.
Along with this, the demand for C ++ will increase significantly. Why? This programming language is supported by the fast-growing EOS platform. It is Ethereum's main competitor.
If you plan to connect your life with the blockchain, then you need to learn exactly Solidity and C++.
