These languages will help current and new mobile application developers navigate the programming landscape to code apps that are stable, secure, and compatible with modern mobile architectures.

As I have said previously, I’m no fan of programming or app development. I don’t find myself to be very good at it, but I am truly in awe of what can be accomplished with properly written applications, especially when the applications leverage network and cloud-based technologies to provide enhanced functionality and reporting capability while offering cross-platform support.

There are colleagues of mine who have always shown this ability to tap into a program’s APIs to create helpful dashboards that can be rolled into mobile apps, allowing them to keep tabs of a number of systems or an entire site—all from their smartphones—including integrated push notifications to alert them of

In this fast-paced digital world, programming or coding literacy is no longer limited to the bespectacled denizens of Silicon Valley. Basic coding knowledge is not only preferred but also expected for most jobs — whether it’s programming or PR.

Moreover, the demand for competent programmers is at an all-time high right now. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of software developers is projected to grow 22% from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all other occupations. This has created the need for learning platforms that can help Americans stay ahead of the curve and get the skills they need for the jobs of the future.

Udacity is an online education platform that offers real, project-based learning for higher-paying, in-demand tech skills such as programming. With them, learners have access to expert mentors, supportive project reviews, exclusive hiring partners, and an outstanding peer community

Software quality assurance company, TIOBE, releases its top programming languages index each month to detail shifts in the ever-evolving landscape. TIOBE recently announced its latest updated index for October. TIOBE uses a series of metrics including searches on Amazon, YouTube, Wikipedia, Bing, Google Yahoo, and Baidu to determine the rankings. Overall, the top 10 saw no positional shifts since the September report, although there are granular data fluctuations and long-term changes to note.

The job market may have taken a sharp right turn in the past few months, but even amidst all the changes happening in the workforce, one thing remains constant: Coding is a lucrative and in-demand skill. 

Programmers can command hefty six-figure salaries some even as starting salaries and the demand for these roles has increased quite dramatically in the past year, with growth for positions such as blockchain engineers and security engineers rising over 100%. The moral of the story here is that even if you have yet to touch a line of code, now is as good of a time as any to bust into the industry. 

As a starting point, we’d recommend taking the classes in The 2020 Premium Learn To Code Certification Bundle. Not only is this go-at-your-own-pace coding

James Gosling, the father of Java, one of the world’s most widely used programming languages, has talked with research scientist Lex Fridman about Java’s origins and his motivations for creating a language that would be used on tens of billions of devices and become central to the development of Android at Google. 

Gosling designed Java 25 years ago while at Sun Microsystems. In 2009, Java would be one of the key reasons Oracle acquired Sun. According to Oracle, today there are 51 billion active Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) deployed globally. 

But long before Oracle’s acquisition of Sun, Gosling said he and a team at Sun “kind of worried that there was stuff going on in the universe of computing that the computing industry was missing out on” – what would become today’s Internet of Things.

“It was all about what was happening in terms of computing hardware, processors and networking

The programming languages and frameworks trend for 2016 seems to be heading more frontend development over backend development. Below is just a simplified list of what you should take note of and consider improving your knowledge on.

Languages and Platforms

PHP 7 is the latest version of PHP. Big websites like Facebook, Google and Apple use PHP. PHP 7 is also two times faster than the previous version 5.6 – this will have a huge improvement on CMS systems like WordPress and Drupal.

JavaScript also has a new update called ES2015 (previously ES5). Some incredible sites that use JavaScript are Lost Worlds Fairs and Cascade Brewery Co.

Python 3.5 was released in 2015 with some juicy features like Asyncio. Nearly all libraries are available for Python 3 so it might be a good time to upgrade your legacy code base now.

Node.js has the largest ecosystem of open source libraries … Read More

If you understand anything about programming, you also understand that there is a wealth of languages for you to choose from. Most of them are very good to learn, while others are considered to be a little tough for someone who is just starting out to learn. Here, we’re going to give you some advice as to some of the questions that you may have regarding any of the programming languages, particularly in why you want to commit to a couple of languages, why you’d want to, and some advice regarding programming in general.

Why Single Out Languages?

If you’re wondering why you should only think about a couple of languages, there’s no definite reason why, as opposed to just prevailing opinions from experts. In short, it’s not a bad thing to do so, but programming languages are just complex and there’s a pretty good chance that you won’t be … Read More

We learnt in the previous class about what a computer program and programming means.

We thus know that we need a language to be able to “talk” or communicate with a computer. There are three basic types of programming languages. A computer can however understand ONLY Machine Language directly. The earliest computer programs were written in machine language.

Machine Language: is expressed in binary using only 0 and 1.

Advantages:

  • Directly understandable by the computer
  • Processing and results were extremely fast

Disadvantages:

  • Being represented in Binary form, the codes were was very difficult to learn and understand by humans
  • All the data and instructions had to be manually transcribed into Machine Language (Binary Form) and all results had to be decoded from Machine Language to Human Readable form
  • Coding and Decoding took a long time
  • Length of the program used to be immense and subsequently resulted in errors

About Programming Languages

May 4, 2020 | programming | No Comments

Programming language translators are taken as best example of system software. The computer programming language is developed with the primary objectives and simplifies the large number of peoples to use computer without any need to know the details of internal structure of the computer.

Languages are matching with the type of operation to be performed by the algorithm for various applications. Languages are also to be designed for the machine independent process.

There are some of the popular high level language are taken. These are:

1. FORTRAN:

It stands for formula translation. It is the oldest high level language. The first version of this language was known as FORTRAN – II, and next popular version was FORTRAN -04. FORTRAN-77 was the most powerful than its predecessors. Recently this version has FORTRAN has known as FORTRAN-90, which is superseding of FORTRAN-77.

2. COBOL:

It stands for Common Business Oriented Language. Now … Read More

Database Programming Languages

May 4, 2020 | programming | No Comments

Programming languages such as C++, BASIC, and Pascal were produced as general function languages, which means that you can use them to write a flight simulator, an accounting program, a voice identification program, or a word processor.

One of the most common uses for computers, however, is storing and recalling information, such as names, addresses, telephone numbers, prison records, credit history, and past job experience. Calculators store such data in a database. Almost every business relies on databases to store info about clients, inventories, and employees, so nearly every company uses a database program.

Unluckily, most people don’t want to know the strange and often freaky commands necessary to store, retrieve, or print info from a database. To make databases easier to use, most databases include a programming specific language. If you publish programs using a database’s programming language, you can produce custom databases for various companies. Best of all, … Read More
