Top 10 Most Popular Programming Languages In IT Companies

1.) C Language

C Language Logo

C  Language is a general-purpose computer programming language developed between 1969 and 1973 by Dennis Ritchie at the Bell Telephone Laboratoriesfor use with the Unix operating system.

Although C was designed for implementing system software. it is also widely used for developing portable application software.

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)


printf("hello, world!\n");

return 0;


2.) C ++

C++ History

C ++ was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup starting in 1979 at Bell Labs as an enhancement to the C language and originally named C with Classes. It was renamed C++ in 1983.

C ++ is one of the most popular programming languages and its application domains include systems software, application software, device drivers, embedded software, high-performance server and client applications, and entertainment software such as video games.

#include <iostream>

int main()


std::cout << "Hello, world!\n";


3.) Java

Java History

Java is a programming language originally developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems (which is now a subsidiary of Oracle Corporation) and released in 1995 as a core component of Sun Microsystems’ Java platform.

The language derives much of its syntax from C and C++ but has a simpler object model and fewer low-levelfacilities. Java applications are typically compiled to bytecode (class file) that can run on any Java Virtual Machine (JVM) regardless of computer architecture.

Java was originally designed for interactive television, but it was too advanced for the digital cable television industry at the time.

public class HelloWorld {

public static void main(String[] args) {

System.out.println("Hello, world!");




4.) Php

Php History

PHP is a general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to server-side web development where PHP generally runs on a web server. Any PHP code in a requested file is executed by the PHP runtime, usually to create dynamic web page content.

It can also be used for command-line scripting and client-side GUI applications. PHP can be deployed on most web servers, many operating systems and platforms, and can be used with many relational database management systems (RDBMS). It is available free of charge, and the PHP Group provides the complete source code for users to build, customize and extend for their own use.

<!DOCTYPE html>



<meta charset="utf-8" />

<title>PHP Test</title>




echo ‘Hello World’;




5.) C#

C Sharp History

C# was developed by Microsoft within the .NET C# is intended to be a simple, modern, general-purpose, object-oriented programming language.Its development team is led by Anders Hejlsberg. The most recent version is C# 4.0, which was released on April 12, 2010.

System.EventArgs)Handles Button1.Click

Msgbox("Hello, World")

JavaScript is a an object-oriented, scripting programming language that runs in the Web browser on the client side. Its smaller than Java, with a simplified set of commands, easier to code and doesnt have to be compiled. JavaScript, also known as ECMAScript


<head><title>simple page</title></head>


<script type="text/javascript">

document.write(‘Hello World!’);



<p>Your browser either does not support JavaScript,
or you have JavaScript turned off.</p>





9.) Perl

Perl History

Perl is a general-purpose programming language originally developed for text manipulation, but as of 2010 is used for a wide range of tasks including system administration, web development, network programming, games, bioinformatics, and GUI development. Programming Perl, published by O’Reilly Media, features a picture of a camel on the cover and is commonly referred to as the “Camel Book”
