The Most Important Languages
« on: November 17, 2016, 03:47:33 am »
Hey everyone! Could everyone post a top 3 list of programming languages that they think is the most important and why?

 :thumbsup:

Also, could you make a list of the spoken languages that you think are the most important? (not computer ones)

Coding or Spoken Languages?  :P
JK
I'd say C++, because it is versatile and easy to code (from what iv'e heard)

In my opinion, the best and most important language is C.
It's widely used, it's fairly simple, very fast and very portable, more so than any programming language out-there.
The second one might be C++ but for me, it's a pretty bad "improvement" to C.
And my third pick would be Javascript.
It is internally completely different to C but it has a very similar syntax to it so i still approve it.

As for spoken languages... i would have to agree with juju here.
It's obvious English is the winner here.
In my opinion, it's a better international language than Esperanto ever was, for numerous reasons.
(Notably the complete lack of swear words... lol)

Everything else is probably going to be biased.
French is not the best language and it can get quite complicated.

As for Japanese, i appreciate the numerous video games written in japanese but as a language, it is just overly complicated.
Learning the giant clusterf*** of japanese characters alone is a nightmare.
Like Vietnamese, they should switch to using the latin alphabet and use Rōmaji.

For programming: C, Ruby, Ruby, MOAR Ruby, TI-BASIC, Javascript, Ruby, Python, and did I mention RUBY?
As you can see, in this graph of something no one knows what but we all pretend we doyou can see that ruby is clearly greater.




J/K, C is probably the best, THO RUBY IS VALUABLE (and GEMLIKE)

Programming languages:
C - widely used, basically father of most modern languages (would Ada be the mother then? :P)
Java - You can hate or love Java, but you gotta admit HotSpot (the official jvm) is impressive.
Z80 - I just like Z80 :P (and where would we be without the Z80 cpu?)

Spoken languages:
English is pretty global, next to Spanish and French. The problem is English is way more popular in rich countries.
Also good ol' dutch, but thats not an important language...

about spoken languages: I wonder why so few people in europe learn mandarin while it's suc an important language thinking globally...
because its hard

For programming: C, Ruby, Ruby, MOAR Ruby, TI-BASIC, Javascript, Ruby, Python, and did I mention RUBY?

Since when is Java slower than Ruby? I bet this chart must be very old :P

Java has severe dependency problems, tho (requires one different version of java installl per program sometimes, and your java install sometimes vanishes from your PC for no reason)

As for higher level languages, they might not be as important as C, but their importance sometimes lie in introducing people into programming.

Just want to point out many of the posters so far have specified MORE than 3 languages. At least 3 of them so far  (-_(//));
