Top 5 Programming Languages:

Making such a list of top 5 programming languages. Every single person is influenced by some kind of things and there is always a reason why one is making a certain list. While making this list I was compiling some data and especially the data that I looked up for was Stack Overflow and the market trends. But it doesn’t mean that just a language is popular on Stack Overflow doesn’t mean it has to be on the top list. My criteria for making such list includes how the language is doing on Stack Overflow, the market trend and how easily the language will get you into the job.

5) PHP

Most of the people believe that PHP is dying language. But it’s completely opposite of that, PHP is not a dying language. It is still one of the most popular languages in 2019.

SWIFT is one of the most powerful languages in 2019. It is very popular among the IOS ecosystem. You can develop a ton of things using this language including iPhone apps and games, Ipad apps and some specific apps for the Apple watches.

Most of people might disagree with this particular choice. If you are living in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and other such countries on the Asian side. The reason being is that this side of the market is dominated by Android. But still Apple sells millions of their devices and this means that there are millions of iPhone that require a lot of apps because nowadays every company definitely require a version of their app in IOS as well.

Picking up SWIFT programming language can be the really amazing choice but let me tell you also explain to you that this is not the cheapest option because first and foremost you need an Apple device which is little bit on expensive side and on top of that if you want to publish your app you require $99 per year license and this maybe somehow hard option for students.


Java is still one of the most dominant programming languages and its authority over a variety of domains is already proven, one of them is Android, and the market on the Asia side is totally dominated by Android.

But Java is not only about Android, but there are also a lot of frameworks and libraries in Java that you can master and can easily get jobs in that domain.
