Application Of Different Programming Languages (PART II)

To be Continued…..

In the first part of the Application of Different Programming Languages (Part I) we have talked about Python, Java and Javascript top 3 programming language now we will discuss the application of the next 5 programming language what they’re used for, what is the career opportunity, and how you can learn to code with them.

4.C#(C Sharp)

Created by Microsoft, C# is considered to be one of the most powerful programming languages in the Dot NET framework. It is a powerful, flexible language that gives you a comprehensive programming foundation that is applicable to Java, Objective-C, PHP, and more. You can think of C# as a blend of the C++ and the Java language but Anders Hejlsberg, the creator of C#, says the language is more like C++ than Java. It’s the first version released in 2001.

Usage/Application:

  • Cloud-native apps and services.
  • Game Development(using Unity)
  • Windows libraries and components.
  • Web applications.
  • Web services and Web API.
  • Native iOS and Android mobile apps.
  • Backend services.

C# can also be used to write non-UI console and WPF Browser-based applications.

Salary: The average salary for a C# Developer in India is ₹382883.

Did you know that? C# language is good for developing games. It is also used by Unity(the majority leader in commercial game engines) to develop games.

5.PHP

PHP is a general-purpose scripting language especially suited to web development. It is mainly used for developing dynamic and data-heavy websites and applications. It has been the cornerstone of the web for a long time. PHP is a simple, fast and platform-independent general-purpose programming language with over 631,000 repositories on GitHub.

Usage/Application:

  • Web Applications (develop Static websites or Dynamic websites)
  • Content Management Systems
  • It is also used to manage dynamic content, databases, session tracking, even build entire e-commerce sites.

Salary: The average entry-level PHP developer salary in India is Rs. 172,000 per annum. Mid-Level PHP Developer Salary. The average mid-level PHP developer salary in India is Rs. 264,000 per annum. Experienced PHP Developer Salary. The average of (5- 9 years) experienced PHP developer salary in India is Rs. 546,000 per annum.

Did you know that? PHP is used by 79% of all the websites whose server-side programming language we know.

6.C and C++

Sequel to C, C++ is the pioneer of the modern world’s most used programming languages and the root of other programming languages such as C#, Java, and JavaScript. It is a simple, yet powerful programming language that provides a structured approach. Both C and C++ are considered high-performance languages and are widely used in developing applications where performance is a critical issue.

Usage/Application:

  • Operating Systems. Be it Microsoft Windows or Mac OSX or Linux — all of them are programmed in C++.
  • Embedded Systems.
  • Game Development
  • Game Development

Salary:

The average salary for a Developer C/C++ is ₹ 8,41,410 in India.

Did you know that? Microsoft Windows and Google Chrome are the two of the most well-known projects created with C++.

7.R

R is a programming language and free software environment for statistical computing and graphics supported by the R Foundation for Statistical Computing. R was designed by statisticians and was specialized for statistical computing.

Usage/Application:

  • Data Analysis, Data Visualization, Data Science and Machine Learning
  • Data mining
  • It is easy to draw graphs in R, like pie charts, histograms, box plot, scatter plot, etc++

Salary: The average salary for a Data Analyst with R skills in India is ₹508224.

Did you know that? R is used by 70% of data miners.

8.Swift

Swift is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm, compiled programming language developed by Apple Inc. and the open-source community, first released in 2014. The Swift program codes are near to natural English, so it is easy to read. It is one of the most useful programming languages which has easy to add new features which makes swift high- level language.

Usage/Application: Swift is a specially designed language which works with Apple’s Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks to create all types of iOS apps.

  • ios app
  • mac os app
  • apple watch app

Salary: The average salary for an iOS Developer in India is ₹486,483.

Did you know that? Developed for 4 years in secrecy, nobody knew about it outside of Apple (company), which is impressive.

So these are the top most used programming languages used in the world and their application. Besides these, there are some database languages(SQL) and markup languages (HTML) that are not in this list because they are not characterised as a programming language but are used widely.

So in the last part of this blog series, we will talk about the application of the most popular database language (SQL), markup language (HTML) and lastly style sheet language (CSS) (click here to read Part III).
