Without a doubt, technology evolves from day to day, not to mention the ever invoked rise of artificial intelligence. Leaving all this aside, developers nevertheless have to keep up with changes and update their skills, especially where programming languages are concerned.
Early bird catches the worm, as the saying goes, so learning which programming languages will be most sought after in 2024 will give you a head start and a big leverage.
That’s why we relied on the experts from VON Tech, a company with more than 10 years experience in helping IT businesses grow, to analyze the trends for the coming year and create a useful list for you.
Python, for scripting, automation and data analysis
This information may not be so surprising, especially considering that Python has been among the most popular programming languages for many years. It has a simple syntax, which makes it easy to understand and learn, but other features make it so desirable.
It is useful for both artificial intelligence and machine learning, as it has an ecosystem of libraries and frameworks. In addition, it also has the ability to handle large data sets. Summarizing, all these aspects make Python successful in scripting, automation or data analysis.
Java, for IoT frameworks and mobile development
Java is a highly sought-after programming language, especially because it is stable, scalable, and versatile. It is used in cloud computing, an essential function for company development, IT segment innovation, but also for mobile development.
Moreover, Java is useful for IoT (Internet of Things) development – the network of objects formed by connecting different devices, services and automated systems to each other via Internet.
C/C++ give control over memory and system resources
Although the C programming language appeared 45 years ago, this and the C++ version are a must even today.
C is a procedural programming language, very effective in writing operating systems, but also in building embedded systems. On the other hand, C++ is object-oriented, high performance, so developers have control over memory and system resources. It is often used in graphics applications and especially game development for consoles, PC or phones.
Swift, the “new” alternative for iOS ML and server-side development
Swift is a “young” programming language, launched in 2014 by Apple, used to write iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS software. However, despite the novelty element, it managed to gain ground and enjoy popularity.
It began to be used more and more for the development of mobile applications and machine learning systems for iOS. Of course, it is also a good option for server-side development.
Don’t be afraid to outsource
Sometimes it can be complicated to find people with all the programming skills that would be useful for your business. Not to mention that even if you find them, the hiring and training process can be quite lengthy.
VON Tech leverages outsourcing and turns it into the most efficient solution. The +10 years experienced company provides hardware design and verification, as well as embedded software development, implementation and application testing services, in the US, Germany, SEE (3 locations in Romania) and UAE.
