Top 5 Programming Languages of Time

A comprehensive overview of the great programming languages of the modern era is here. Be it Java programming, javascript, swift and object-oriented languages. The comparison is very tough because they all have some unique features that can not be replaced. It is on the application and usability that what we are going to opt.

Java

Java is the most popular Object Oriented Programming language and first choice of the programmers. It is a WORA i.e. Write Once and Run Anywhere. A compiled Java code can be run on any platform without recompilation and that is the beauty of Language. Compiled byte-code run on JVM – Java Virtual Machine.

JavaScript

JavaScript is all time hit and fit. One of the core technological part of WWW after HTML and CSS. It is a simple, lightweight and powerful client-side programming language. JavaScript is Object Based Language, not a full-fledged Object Oriented Programming Language. Nowadays JavaScript is developed as a most significant tool for software and website development. It is easy to animate and make interactive web pages using JavaScript. Now JavaScript is under Oracle.

Created by-

Developed in 1995 by Netscape and was known as Live Script. It is also known as ES6 Script . The task of development was done under supervision of  Brendan Eich .

C Programming

C is an imperative and structured procedural programming language. It is known as the Mother of All the modern programming language. Almost the languages use syntax similar to that of C.It provide Low-level memory access and fastest among all language. Almost the Operating systems are written in C including Windows,Mac, Linux.

Developed By-

C was originally developed at Bell Labs by Dennis Ritchie, between 1972 and 1973. This is the most popular programming language nowadays.

Features of C-

  1. Structured and robust,reliable
  2. Fast and procedural
  3. Low memory access
  4. Cross platform compatibility

Applications-

  1. System Software and OS.
  2. Widely used in Embedded systems.
  3. Various range of application software.
  4. Supercomputers.
  5. Develop New Programming languages and compilers.

Swift

Swift is inherited from Objective C. Largely Objective C is used by Apple to develop its product.  Now swift is an alternative of Objective C.It is a Protocol Oriented Programming Language and widely used for Developing applications for iOS,Mac . Swift works with  Apple’s Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks.

According to fact represented by Wikipedia , Swift won first place for Most Loved Programming Language in the Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2015 and second place in 2016.

Development of Swift-

Development of Swift started in July 2010 by Chris Lattner and was introduced at Apple’s 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference.

Features of Swift-

  1. Protocol oriented Programming language
  2. Compiled Programming language
  3. Dynamic Dispatch
  4. Late binding
  5. Named parameters

Applications of Swift-

  1. An alternative to Objective C
  2. Widely used for Apple Inc. Products, like iOS, Mac,watchOS, tvOS etc.

Frameworks for Swift: Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks
