The Prominent Programming Languages

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm glad to elaborate on an interesting yet unclear question: which programming languages will offer the most jobs in the next 5 years or so. In other words: if you are a fresh college graduate or in a turning point of your career, which programming languages should you put an emphasis on in order to maximize your job prospects. I'll answer this question in division to the most prominent fields of programming today:

1. Web sites: PHP - server scripting language i.e scripts which run on the server and respond to the user who browses internet. When you log in to your bank account, you need the bank's server to communicate with you, and this is done by PHP scripts running on the server. Obviously, because most of the web communication requires server scripts, the need for PHP knowledge is expected to be constant.

2. Mobile app: Android - iOS fans, I'm sorry to let you down, but the world is going for the Android side. The reason: Android is free and that's crucial for mobile customers in the developing world, which is most of the humanity. On the other hand, the vast thrust power of Google delivers Android to huge markets, and except of Windows, there is no real opponent to Google's domination. So: Java is the main programming language for Android applications.

3. Windows software - Many of us dislike Windows as an operating system, and for a good reason. But there's no debate that Windows holds the lion share of the market. Most of the development for PC computers is done for Windows. And what is the programming language (and environment)? C# (C Sharp) with the Visual Studio development environment. So what are you waiting for? Start coding now!
