Posted In Resources, Softwares - By Pritam Priyadarshi On Saturday, June 18th, 2011 With 4 Comments

In IT industry, the MATRIX world is formulated by numerous computer languages for the subsequent operations. The Tech-Giants implement the high end efficient programming languages to complete their targets with  the approach of developed environments. Some are also busy developing new algorithms and new strategies for getting the maximum and qualitative output.

Here are some of the best available computer languages that most of the companies do work with. So, If you are a tech-aspirant , its an added advantage to have an idea on these basic used computer languages.

1. C

It is a basic and most popular computer programming language which is used for solving general problems. Dennis Ritchie developed it at the Bell Laboratories during 1969 and 1973. It was developed with the objective of using it along with the Unix Operating Systems. It is used for implementing system Software and for the development of portable application software.

2. C++

3. Java

Java- It is the most popular programming language which is specifically designed to let the application developers, ”Write once, run anywhere” .It was developed by James Gosling at the Sun Microsystems and came to market in1995 as a core product of Sun Microsystems’ Java platform. At present, Sun Microsystems is a subsidiary of Oracle Corporation.

Basically Java applications are compiled to byte-code (class file) which is indeed an added advantage as these byte codes can run on Java virtual machine (JVM) irrespective of the architecture of the computer and Operating System.

4. PHP

It is basically a general purpose scripting language which is primarily designed for the web development so as to produce the qualitative and efficient dynamic web pages. The foundation for PHP was laid by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1995 as a set of Perl Scripts called as “Personal homepage tools”.

Later Zeed Suraski and Andi Gutmans rewrote the parser in 1997 which leads to the creation of PHP3.Earlier PHP stands for Personal Home Page, now it stands for PHP: Hypertext Pre-processor.

This is used widely on most of the web servers and as a stand-alone interpreter on almost each and every computer irrespective of its operating system and moreover it’s absolutely FREE.

5. C#

This is one of the modern, general-purpose; object oriented programming language which is indeed very simple. It was developed by Anders Hejlsberg and his team at the Microsoft within the initiative of .NET in 2001.

C# is among the languages which are designed for the common language infrastructure. The upcoming Version C# 5.0 is planned to provide asynchronous methods and compiler as a service.

6. Microsoft .NET

Basically VB, formerly known as VB.Net is an object oriented programming language which has been appraised as an evolution to the classical Visual Basic with an implementation to the .NET framework. It was developed in the year 2001 by Microsoft and at present Microsoft comes out with two major accomplishments of the Visual Basic series:

  1. Microsoft Visual Studio, which is the commercial edition.
  2. Microsoft Visual Studio Express, which comes as a free entity.

7. Ruby

This is a single pass interpreted, object oriented programming language. It was developed by Yukihiro Matsumoto in Japan in 1995. This programming language is created with reference to languages like Perl, Smalltalk, Eiffel and Lisp.

Ruby includes various diversified features including functional, object oriented, imperative and imperative programming paradigms to be used in all computers irrespective of its operating system and platform. Also it is embedded with automatic memory management and a dynamic type system.

8. Javascript

It is a scripting language basically used in the mode of client side JavaScript which has been put into action as a part of a web browser with a motive of providing improved user interfaces and dynamic websites. It was designed by Brendan Eich in the year 1995 as a project under Netscape.

JavaScript has developed itself as an extensive client-side scripting language for web pages. Now Java Script is a trademark of Oracle Corporation. Its application in web pages and in PDFs, desktop widgets etc. are indeed great.

9. Perl

This is an interpreted dynamic programming language which was developed as a part of the idea of a general purpose scripting language to make the report processing task much more effective and efficient. It was developed by Larry Wall in 1987.

Basically this programming language put emphasis on the text processing without the arbitrary data length limits of numerous contemporary UNIX tools; thereby facilitating the smoother manipulation of text files.
