Whether you are a beginner who wants to make his career in programming or a professional who is curious about learning a new language, having a look at the level of difficulty of these programming languages can be helpful. WP Engine has released a new report after a survey done with the help of professional programmers that shows many of the programming languages to start with. We have chosen top 5 of them according to the percentage of developers who designated them.
With a percentage of 13.3%, HTML was designated as the easiest programming language in the world. Not only because it’s easy to code but also, other programmers find it easy to understand and take over it if needed. The Hyper Text Markup Language was created in 1990, and even with newer languages coming to the scene, this language is still widely recommended to make standard web pages and applications across any browser.
Although a lesser number of people are attracted towards learning Python as compared to HTML, it is designated by 9% of the developers as the easiest one. The language is easy to understand and the syntax is much simpler than others. About this language, the WP report said:
For new coders especially, the consistency and simplicity of Python both contribute to its ease of use and approachability.
Python has a long history with its base laid in 1989, the public version was released in 1994.
Php has been rated by 4.9% developers because of its open source nature. The popularity of the language is because of the great usability features for making professional websites and support for HTML.
With only 4.6% of developers designating the Java language, it lands on number 5. It is one of the least implementation dependent languages which came out in 1991 for the first time. Some developers said that i is the most versatile languages to write in.
