Saint Valentine’s Day is a holiday of love not only toward your beloved one or family, but also to things like… programming languages. We would like to outline 5 programming languages to fall in love with on St. Valentine’s Day.
The list of reasons to love Python is infinite:
- Prevents you from writing Spaghetti code by not compiling without proper indents.
- Very easy to get started.
- Multiple tutorials and mobile apps to learn Python on the run.
- Great web frameworks like Django.
- List of powerful packages. Just anything from csv to machine learning packages.
- Easy to install, don’t need IDE.
Scala is not new and is growing and deemed as a future replacement to Java
- Unlike Java has a lightweight syntax
- Is 100% JVM compatible, so you can reuse existing modules.
- Has great web framework called Play.
- Implements functional programming paradigm.
- Syntaxis sugar.
- Best JS framework, great support, huge community
- A lot of technologies relying on it. (i.e. Ionic 2).
- Great data binding.
- Improved version of Angular 1, with a better approach (not backward compatible).
Old but good language that still dominates the charts.
- Extremely popular with tons of examples and huge community.
- Soon to be 100% cross-platform via .NET Core.
- Excellent business-oriented web framework ASP.NET.
- Great ORM frameworks, test frameworks.
- Quite backward compatible, you will not drown with legacy code.
- Very fresh and lightweight.
- 100% JVM compatible
- Out of box in IntelliJ IDEA because…
- Kotlin created by developers at JetBrains and that these folks know to how to master a language. Just imagine, for so many years they studied thoroughly languages like Java, Groovy, Scala, and they surely have tons of “inspiration” to come up with a good programming language.
Let us program for you in any of this language, let us know at [email protected]
Happy St. Valentine’s Day!
