Top Programming Languages to Learn in 2021


Learn to programming or coding is evolving as an in-demand skill in the perspective of both education and development.

As Barack Obama said

The ability to write computer software — to code — is an important skill. It moves people from being consumers of technology to creators of it. An understanding of coding helps people learn new strategies for solving problems and harness the power of computers to realize their own visions, whatever they may be. Everyone — scientists, fashion designers, doctors, journalists, lawyers, musicians, students — can benefit from a greater understanding of how to use computing.
