    Which programming language to choose for software product development?

    There is a flood of programming languages to use in software development. Which one can make your product outstanding?

    Frontend development with JavaScript

    6th year in a row JavaScript holds the first position around the most commonly used programming languages (69,8%). This language provides interactivity, complexity and dynamics on the client side of applications.

    The most popular JavaScript frameworks:

    • Angular
      This framework is supported by tech giants Google and Microsoft. It provides two-way data binding and is simple for unit testing because of independent components structure. These benefits ensure clear and quality code.
    • React
      This framework was produced by Facebook. Today Facebook continues to maintain and support React. React can save cache in memory creating Virtual DOM making frequent changes in code painless. React has a Single way Data Flow that doesn’t allow components making any changes directly.
    • Vue
      This framework is considered to be the most flexible around these three. It can be easily integrated with already existing applications. Vue combines all the features of the frameworks mentioned above in the most convenient and efficient way.

    Backend development

    • Java
      Java community numbers about 9 million developers around the world. The philosophy “write once, run anywhere” describes Java as a general-purpose language. Practically it can run nearly every system on any platform. Java also allows developing enterprise, web, desktop and mobile apps. Portability and scalability help Java not to lose its positions in the IT world. Older versions will still run perfectly after updates.
    • PHP
      A beginner-friendly programming language that is essential for tech giants like Facebook, Wikipedia and Yahoo. PHP powers almost 80% of all websites. It is extensively used in CMS development. CMS built on PHP can collect and verify data, create cookies and display dynamic content. PHP runs on any OS including Linux and UNIX. It is easy, secure and multilayered.
    • Python
      Python rises in ranks every year. It is considered to be a progress engine in IT amplifying Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Cyber Security. It became the most popular introductory language teaching computer science at universities and even at schools. Python can serve any purpose from game to astronomy app development.
    • Node.js
      Using Node.js technology related to JS you can also run the Backend development. It is extremely efficient and quick in code writing. With Node.js you can create solutions processing a big amount of data easily.

    Mobile development

    • Swift
      Swift allows developing iOS, macOS and Linux applications. Easy to read and write Swift became 13th most popular programming language by the pull request. In comparison with its predecessor Objective-C, it performs the same tasks faster and easier. Swift also provides simple joining to developers’ team.
    • React Native
      Related to JavaScript programming language, React Native has boosted Mobile App Development. It allows developing cross-platform apps through one codebase. Specification for iOS or Android can be made using Platform modules and Platform-specific file extensions.
    • Android Java and Kotlin
      Both of these programming languages are popular for developing Android applications. Compared to Java, Kotlin is faster and more concise in code writing. Java wins in terms of the scalability while developing complex applications.
    • Flutter
      Flutter is a framework from Google that is based on Dart – a dynamic object-oriented programming language. It allows developing cross-platform applications with excellent native-like performance and delightful interface.

    The variety of programming languages allows you to select the most pertinent for your project. Using trendy technologies doesn’t always lead to success. Exposit can help you to understand what programming language your project needs and allocate skilled Frontend, Backend or Full-stack engineers.
