10 fastest growing programming languages, according to Microsoft-owned GitHub
Each year, GitHub publishes an “octa state status” report that tracks the most popular languages and projects on the site.
Developers who want to use a new programming language or project flock to GitHub, a Microsoft-owned service that shares code and brings the community around open source software.
Each year GitHub publishes an “octa state status” report that tracks the most popular languages and projects on the site. Given GitHub’s excellence in Silicon Valley and elsewhere the code was written, this report is a definite proxy for the larger trends in the industry.
Stephen O’Grady, Redmond’s main analyst and co-founder, knew that the fastest growing language has three characteristics.
First, they are versatile. For example, Python can be used for machine learning, data science, and other kinds of data-intensive technical tasks.
Second, some new languages, such as Rust and TypeScript, have special features that promote cybersecurity.
O’Grady said, “When talking to developers, I had to use a tool to make my application more secure through design without much effort.” Francisco held last week.
According to GitHub, the fastest growing programming languages are:
Go, also known as Golang, is a programming language created by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson at Google. In 2009,
Google has released Go in an open source language. That means anyone can use, download, or modify it for free.
Go is designed to be easy and fast, especially for large systems like Google itself.
Assembly is a programming language that “speaks” directly to the computer in the default languages (0 and 1) as possible.
Developers use assemblies to write instructions for computers to access and process data at the lowest possible level.
Each line of code should also contain the simplest command, which can be tedious, but can give developers the best level of fine tuning in their code.
Python is one of the fastest growing programming languages and the second most popular language overall.
It’s open source, so anyone can download and get started, and it’s so high that even beginners can easily find it. Often used for tasks related to web development, data science and artificial intelligence.
Rachel Potvin, vice president of engineering and data at GitHub, spoke on stage at GitHub Universe on Wednesday. “Python is followed by an explosion of data science and machine learning.”
Apex was developed in Salesforce as a language for customizing and building software, making it easier for developers to write code that automates tasks such as updating customer records or running custom reports.
It’s designed to work well with large amounts of data and shares some similarities with Java, one of the most popular programming languages.
PowerShell was developed by Microsoft and built on the widely used and famous NET Framework.
This open source language helps developers write instructions directly to computer systems and manage their operating system. It’s especially useful for IT departments that need to automate tasks like new user onboarding or installing software updates across their entire network.
Available on Linux, Apple macOS, and Microsoft’s own Windows.
TypeScript is one of the fastest growing programming languages and one of the most widely used languages.
It’s also natively supported by Microsoft’s free code editor Visual Studio Code, the top open source project on GitHub.
Kotlin, an open source language, is similar to Java, a widely used programming language, but programmers can mix the two. However, there are special features that help to prevent bugs. It’s also much more concise and allows developers to do more with fewer lines of code. Often used to build Android apps.
Kotlin was the fastest growing programming language last year and was used by companies like Google, Square and Atlassian. Git herbs said they are still growing fast, growing 182% last year.
HCL, the acronym for HashiCorp Configuration Language, was developed by HashiCorp, which creates tools to help programmers run and protect software running in the cloud.
It’s used to set up HashiCorp’s cloud tools like Terraform and is designed to be easy for people to read. The quill herb has grown 213 percent last year.
Rust is designed to be faster and more efficient through memory with features that help developers avoid common errors and bugs.
Sponsored by Mozilla, Firefox’s reputation, this open source programming language is used for game engines, operating systems, virtual reality, and other system-intensive tasks.
According to GitHub, rust grew 235 percent last year.
Developed by Google, Dart is designed specifically for designing user interfaces or for the way users see and feel their apps.
According to a report on GitHub, darts grew 532% last year.
