Top 5 Most Popular Programming Languages for developers.

The world of software development is huge with many people finding certain niches along the way, some professionals choose to stick to one language to master. However there is an ever growing demand for developers to be proficient in several languages. Here are the top 5 preferred programming languages according to Stack Overflow in 2019.

  • Javascript – 67.8%
  • HTML/CSS – 63.5%
  • SQL – 54.4%
  • Python – 41.7%
  • Java – 41.1%

Javascript may be in first place but there has been a huge rise in the popularity for Python, over taking Java and C#. This could potentially be explained due to the rise in business’ utilising ‘Big Data’ and ‘Machine Learning’. At the opposite end of the table, the two languages which developers ranked as their most dreaded language were VBA and Objective-C. This would indicate it will be more and more difficult to recruit this skill set over the coming years.
