What are the favorite computer languages of IT juniors?
We will focus mainly on a brief presentation of each language that is most likely chosen by young IT specialists including information on which jobs they mostly apply for:
Python is a popular and easy-to-learn purpose programming language (commonly used in introductory computer science courses). Python is a language that can do almost anything: from web and server application development, data analysis and data science, and game creation up to task automation or desktop application development. Since it is very easy to understand and master, it is one of the most preferred and used languages.
One of the most used languages is JS and all its libraries (React, JQuery, Angular). It is a language that will be used much more by web developers. It allows you to create interactive elements on websites, such as dynamic forms, animations, and other interactive features that can make a website more attractive and user-friendly. It is a universal language that can be used for a large variety of purposes, which explains its popularity.
C# is a programming language mainly used for computer and mobile applications and video games. It is an object-oriented programming language (which works with “objects”) and also with a logic of structure and architecture of the data included in the code. This language will therefore be appreciated by software developers and video game creators. In the same style, we have Java or C++ which are a bit less appreciated and used.
