14 Programming Languages to Know in 2024

Technology is constantly evolving and sometimes it feels hard to keep up. We’ve compiled a list of the 14 programming languages programmers and developers looking to boost their resume should look to learn in 2024.

You may be familiar with languages such as HTML, PHP, SQL and JavaScript which have been around for a while, but newer technologies and updates within these languages are continually reshaping the landscape of web development. For those aiming to get more familiar with advanced web applications, languages like Ruby and its powerful web application framework, Ruby on Rails, offer a gateway to more complex coding projects.

Java remains a cornerstone programming language, but for this list, we’ve purposefully left it off to offer you newer alternatives that’ll keep you at an advantage. Let’s get into it.

 

14 Programming Languages to Learn for 2024

 

14. PHP: Well-suited for web development and occasionally used to create desktop applications, PHP is an easy-to-learn, server-sent language. While some programmers are moving toward more universal languages, PHP remains in use, highly ranked—and free.

13. Julia: Predicted to be a well-performing and popular programming language in 2024, Julia is fast like C and is user-friendly for programmers familiar with Python. Julia was designed for high performance in general programming as well as numerical and technical computing. Julia’s
popularity is likely based off its dynamic typing and its potential in AI innovation.

12. Scala: Concise, expressive, and scalable, Scala is commonly used for building large-scale distributed systems, web applications, and data processing pipelines. Scala is flexible and its performance makes it a popular choice for companies and developers working on complex software projects. This static-typed language by nature lends itself to faster bug and error detection.

11. Ruby: With its elegant syntax and emphasis on productivity, Ruby remains a favorite among developers for web application development. It has a flexible approach to problem solving, it’s a general-purpose language and it runs on most operating systems. Ruby combines both readability and simplicity for ease of use.

10. SQL: While not a programming language in the traditional sense, SQL is indispensable for querying and managing databases, making it a fundamental skill for developers working with data-driven applications. This language is used in almost every industry to analyze data and
it’s pretty easy to learn.

9. R: R is a must-know language and environment for anyone working in data science and analytics. It was designed to display statistical analysis results, so it outpaces other languages in terms of data visualization.

8. Kotlin: One of the popular programming languages in 2023 and now 2024 as well, Kotlin
is recognized for its clean and concise code that makes development more enjoyable. Kotlin has become a popular choice for developers for Android app development.

7. Swift: If you’re interested in iOS and macOS app development, Swift is the language to master, offering a seamless development experience for Apple platforms. Swift is the driving force
behind iPhone applications, and as phone usage continues to rise, so does the demand for Swift developers. The language is safe overall and it runs lightning fast.

6. TypeScript: Something like JavaScript on steroids, TypeScript was introduced by Microsoft and has gained popularity due to its ability to catch errors early. JavaScript is reliable and
can be used for large-scale projects.

5. Python: Renowned for its simplicity and versatility, Python finds applications across various domains, including web development, data science, and automation. If we talk about easy-to-read, easy-to-learn, and easy-to-use language then nothing can beat Python and that
makes it an excellent choice for beginners.

4. C#: The go-to language for game development, C-Sharp combines elements of object-oriented and imperative programming paradigms. C# serves as an advanced iteration of C, and understanding these languages provides a solid foundation for system-level programming.

3. GoLang: Developed by Google, Go continues to gain popularity as an open-source coding language known for its speed and efficiency. It was designed to be a simple language, so it’s relatively easy to understand, but has fewer features than other programming languages.

2. JavaScript: The backbone for front-end and back-end web development, JavaScript is for anyone working on web projects. This language is powerful and versatile with its transformation that expanded reach to server-side scripting.

1. Rust: Known for its speed, safety, and concurrency features, Rust has gained traction among developers working on system-level programming and performance-critical applications. Rust
is the language you use when you need control and unwavering performance over all else. Its unique features work overtime to prevent memory-related bugs.
