What’s the Best Programming Language to Learn?

Every once in a while we get someone asking which programming language to learn and as noted in this article, everyone will have an opinion from their own favorite experience.

...No developer has experience in every language. Some will have good knowledge of several, but no one can offer an unbiased choice. Whatever language a developer chooses and uses daily becomes their preferred option. They will passionately defend that decision because, if they can’t, they’d switch to something else.

Other developers can offer lessons learned from their experiences. That is useful information, but you’re unlikely to have identical aspirations. To flip this on its head, seek opinions from developers who’ve been forced to use a particular language or framework: the majority will hate that technology. Why trust someone else to make a decision for you?...

...There’s no “Best Language”...

...You cannot choose the “wrong” language; all development knowledge is good knowledge. Perhaps picking COBOL for an iOS game isn’t the best choice, but you’d quickly discover it was impractical and learn something about the language which was useful elsewhere....

...If you’re genuinely interested in development, pick a small project, choose a language, dig out some tutorials and get going....
