One of the most important skills today is the ability to program. Since every market or industry branch requires the use of computers. Also our daily life depends on software. But what are the highest paid programming languages?
The question is complicated, because there are a good number of programming languages of different levels (beginners, intermediate and experts) and that solve various problems (web application, mobile applications, game development, distributed system, etc.). In 2020, these are the best prospects for work and money.
Fast, easy to program and learn, Python is used for scalable web applications. Platforms like YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest or SurveyMonkey are programmed in this language. It has an excellent library support and a huge developer community.
Although it is not appropriate for mobile computing, it is a bit slow and its database access is still under development, Python is the best paid programming language in the market.
Widely used to build enterprise-scale web applications, it is very stable and is also used for Android App Development, which allows your applications to reach millions of users. Since Google has a great Java-based Android development framework – Android Studio, Java programmers are well paid.
It is not so easy to learn, but it opens up great job opportunities.
C / C ++
These are the heavy weights of programming: almost all operating systems and file systems are done in these programming languages. C ++ is also used by many software developers for its speed and stability. In addition to the advantage of its STL (Standard Template Library).
It is not easy to learn and offers moderate employment opportunities. But if you manage to insert yourself in a company that creates games, GUI applications or real-time mathematical simulations, you will surely be well paid for the effort to master it.
It is easy to learn and has many job opportunities with good paychecks.
Go (AKA Golang) programming language
Since it is a programming language built by Google, it provides support for multithreading and has been used by companies that use distributed systems extensively, especially in Silicon Valley.
It is moderately easy to learn and not many companies are using it, but the ones that do use it will vastly appreciate your skills (and will pay you accordingly).
R Programming Language
It is a commonly used programming language to do Data Analysis and Machine Learning. With built-in libraries and an excellent framework, R gives you the tools to develop very powerful Machine Learning algorithms. And is also useful to produce general statistics and graphics. If you wish to join the Analytics department of a large organization, you should learn it.
It is moderately easy to learn. But it gives you a fairly large job opportunity and a decent paycheck.
