Python is great for data science

One of the most widely used programming languages in 2021 is Python. It is the recommended first programming language for beginners as it is easy to learn. There are thousands of precompiled libraries available with detailed documentation that can get you started with minimal syntax knowledge. Python is mainly used in the field of data science and machine learning. It is also often used for web development, but for that we also have a greate programming language called JavaScript.

JavaScript, your friendly web language

JavaScript is the programming language of the web. The majority of the interactive websites are made using JavaScript and its frameworks. It is abundantly used in web development as well as for mobile applications. It is easy to learn; however, it will take a lot of practice before you can start building complete websites. There are some great libraries and frameworks such as Angular and React, which are very popular for building front end applications. When you want to build a backend server and you want to stick to one language, you can use Node.js and Express library. Here's a code example where you can learn the basics of using NodeJS and Express.

The secure and robus Java programming language

Important - first of all, Java is not the same as JavaScript, even thought it sounds. Java is a great cross-platform (OOP) Object-oriented programming language. It is widely used and it's syntax is very similar to C++. The langauge is used in tons of applications and web apps. As it has great secure architecture and multi-threaded functionality, it is a great choice for banking, transactions, stocks and billing. Also, mobile operation systems like Android uses Java API. When you program backend applications in Java you can use frameworks such as Spring, which makes great server-side applications.
