Staying on top is one of the key factors for business and technological innovation. And with over 600 unique programming languages, deciding on the best programming language for your project may be difficult, and can be the hardest part in the initial development phase.
And to help, here’s our list of the top 10 potential programming languages to learn in 2018, to help decide the best programming language to use for your project is to evaluate your project needs.
1. Swift: More popular than Objective-C, this is the language for developing native iOS or Mac OS apps, and is the programming language with the most potential for reshaping the future. Native apps have been found to outperform cross-platform hybrid apps, and SpriteKit makes it even easier to build 2D games. Indeed, it builds itself on the successes of C and Objective-C without the constraints of compatibility.
It was heavily influenced by Ruby and Python, and is considered user friendly and fun to use. Operating as a high level language, generally being easy to maintain, Swift is a general purpose, multi paradigm language developed by Apple for iOS.
