From A for A # to Z for Zonnon there are currently more than 350 programming languages – 1,500 if we include the esoteric “Just for Fun” languages that are not really suitable for everyday use, such as Brainfuck or the Shakespeare Programming Language. Deciding on one is not that easy – especially when you are setting the course for your professional career. We have compiled all the relevant information for you to make it easier for you to choose your programming language (s). Which programming skills are best paid for, which are in particular demand at the moment, which programming languages master the most and how do you complete your technology stack?
At this point we would like to anticipate: There is no one programming language with which you will automatically become extremely rich and which every employer is looking for. Rather, it’s about making a choice and feeling comfortable with it, because the first programming language is just the beginning. It counts, for example, to learn the underlying concepts and structure of a language and to recognize them in other tech environments. This way you learn new languages much faster. It is also important to increase your own market value, for example by expanding your tech stack with specific technologies on trending topics: If you are interested in big data, then take a look at Python or R.
