Any programming language popularity is defined not only by the number of its ‘followers’, aka developers who prefer or utilize this language, but also by the number of projects that require knowledge of specific language and need of software developers with this language in their tech stack. Today we would like to discuss some of the most popular programming languages in terms of practical application, the number of jobs available, as well as potential development prospects. Let’s begin with a definition of open-source programming language. To be named an ‘open source’ a programming language should match certain criteria:
- The open source code that is accessible, regardless of the location;
- Free redistribution with no limitations on areas of application;
- No product-specific license or limitations.
