The number of programming languages that have emerged within the last decade is overwhelming. Each language has its own perks and has helped improve web development and mobile apps development in many ways.
Here are the most popular programming languages that have emerged and growing in popularity:
Rust is sponsored by Mozilla Research and is a systems programming language that runs fast, prevents segfaults and guarantees thread safety. It‘s syntax is similar to C++ but the designers intend to provide better memory and performance. It’s an open source programming language. Some of it’s most promising features are zero-cost abstractions, move semantics, guaranteed memory safety, threads without data races, trait-based generics, pattern matching, type inference, minimal runtime, efficient C bindings.
Python is a high-level programming language. It emphasizes code readability, notably using significant whitespace. It provides constructs that enable clear programming on both small and large scales. It has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management. It also supports multiple programming paradigms including object-oriented, imperative, functional and procedural. It has a large and comprehensive library.
Elixir is a functional, current and general purpose programming language that runs on BEAM or the Erlang Virtual Machine. Elixir shares the same abstractions as Erlang for building distributed fault-tolerant applications. Elixir provides extensive tooling for extensible design.
Go programming is also referred to as golang. It is a compiled, statically typed language and features garbage collection, limited structural typing, memory safety and CSP style concurrent programming features added. It was originally developed by Google and it is a free and open source.
