Software development is a dynamic field. New and in-demand programming languages, frameworks and technologies can emerge, rise to fame, and then fade away in the course of a few years. Developers need to constantly be learning new skills to stay relevant.

Here’s our list of top 5 programming languages to learn in 2018

5. PHP

PHP is installed on almost every web hosting server. So if you have created your website using PHP and want to make it available on the internet, you can choose just about any hosting provider and deploy your website on the server and it just works fine.
PHP 7 is the most important revolution for PHP since the release of PHP 5 in 2004. The speed of PHP 7 and security improvements alone make upgrading to PHP 7 worthwhile.

4. C#

C# is an object-oriented programming language from Microsoft designed to run on Microsoft’s .NET platform and to make development quicker and easier than Microsoft’s previous languages
C# is becoming more popular now because, with C#, we can create not only desktop and web apps but also mobile applications for Android and iOS using Xamarin.

3. Java

Java is arguably the most popular programming language as 90% of the Fortune 500 companies heavily use it. Its famous slogan “write once, run anywhere” captures one of the keys that makes Java so valuable — its powerful Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which makes it cross-platform compatible. One of the reasons why Java is so popular is because it is platform independent.

2. Python

Python is a general purpose language which you can find almost anywhere today. You’ll find it in web applications (Django), desktop apps, network servers, machine learning, media tools and more. Python is an extremely easy language to learn.

1. Javascript

Javascript has consistently been the top programming language for a while now, and it will continue to be for the forseeable future.
Every browser supports JavaScript and almost every website uses JavaScript. JavaScript was originally built to run on the client side, but with Node.js, knowledge of JavaScript can be used to work on the server side as well.
