2. C (with spinoffs C++ and C#)
C (with spinoffs C++ and C#) is one of the oldest programming languages, used for decades in the tech industry. It has great portability across different operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, Linux, and Oracle Solaris. Its combination of efficiency, portability, and flexibility makes it suitable for tasks ranging from low-level system programming to high-level application development.
It can be used to create small but efficient programs tailored specifically to user needs in the Internet of Things domain or implements algorithms shared online.
It’s a default language for many applications related to audio/video gaming development and there are plenty of libraries available online which speed up its usage significantly. It’s the ideal choice for projects where efficiency or portability are important factors.
C++ is a versatile programming language used for decades to develop various applications, including performance-critical ones like games and audio/video programs.
It is also commonly used for developing graphical user interfaces (GUIs), embedded systems, and even some operating systems such as Apple’s OS X and parts of Microsoft Windows.
Many Google products have been written in or contain components written in C++; the same applies to Facebook.
Its versatility makes it suitable for almost any field from medical device software to financial trading platforms. Its high level of functionality and flexibility allows developers greater control over how their programs run while taking advantage of certain libraries that provide additional functions not available elsewhere thus speeding up development time.
