Career Counsellor at Career Nurturer and Parsi Times writer Farzad Minoo Damania discusses the most in-demand programming languages of 2015.

Technology has become an integral part of our day to day life. And it is very difficult to imagine our life without it. A very critical part of technology is programming. Programs are used almost everywhere. They are in your mobile phone, television, washing machine, microwave, gaming console, car, vending machine, ATM etc. 

Digital India and Smart Cities are the new buzz words in India. Both these ambitious programs need the backbone of Information Technology and Computer programming.  Thus career opportunities for computer programmers, software developers, database administrators, computer engineers, mobile application developers, and data analysts are only going to enhance.  

If you want to develop your career in IT industry, then here are few programming languages in demand which can give the right boost to your career:

Java is one of the most popular programming languages having wide range of applications ranging from making dynamic websites, enterprise level applications, mobile based apps, android apps for smart phones, games and desktop applications. It is popular due to its stability and scalability.

C is one of the oldest and the first language that people learn while starting a career in programming. C is used for low level coding, operating system and kernel level programming, developing hardware drivers, embedded system and firmware coding.

C++ (pronounced as C plus plus) is an object-oriented programming (OOP) language based on its predecessor C language. It is considered to be one of the most powerful programming languages, and is used actively in development of operating systems software such as Windows, Mac and Linux. 

C# (pronounced as C-Sharp) is the prime language used for developing Microsoft applications and services. If you know Java, C and C++; then learning C# will be easy. 

SQL (i.e. Structured Query Language) is a query language used for communicating with databases. Most apps have a backend database (such as Microsoft SQL server, Oracle, DB2 or MySQL); and SQL helps us interact with the database. If you are looking at career opportunities as a database administrator, software developer or applications developer; then learning SQL is necessary.

JavaScript is another popular programming language used for developing interactive web pages. It provides features such as animations and user interfaces to spice up the website. Most of the websites do have JavaScript component in them. It was earlier used more as a front-end language, but now it is also actively used in back-end development.

PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) is considered to be a very valuable server-side programming language for developers and programmers. It is considered beginner-friendly and easy to learn. PHP is used widely for developing dynamic websites which are heavy on data, and also for creating web applications. Major websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, Youtube and Yahoo are powered by PHP.

Python is one of the easiest programming languages to learn dues to its simple and straightforward syntax. It has wide usage for desktop apps, web apps, and data analysis.  It is also widely used in academic community for bioinformatics and scientific computing.

Ruby has become very popular specifically with start-up companies for developing their websites. It is pretty straight-forward and easy to code; and used actively for web programming. 

Objective C is used for developing applications for Apple’s OS X and iOS. It is used for crafting apps for Mac, iPhone and iPad.

Swift is another programming language recently introduced by Apple. It is gaining importance due to its simplicity and ease of coding. Objective C and Swift are very essential if you want to code for Apple products.

Perl is a high level programming language used for system administration, system automation, reporting, application development, cyber security and network programming. It is widely used for writing UNIX scripts. Perl is considered to be a complex language to learn.

R is a programming language used widely by data scientists, data miners and statisticians for data analysis and statistical computing. R is not like a traditional programming language, hence difficult for some to grasp it. Due to increasing job opportunities in data analytics and Big Data, scope for R language is increasing.

The list does not end here; there are several other programming languages such as Golang, Erlang, Scala, Clojure, Groovy, Haskell, F#, Lua, and many more.

So do you need to know them all? Not really. Start with Java, C++ and PHP; and then add few more to your knowledgebase with time.
