Trend 2019 #1: Can Python catch up with Java?
Python is the third most popular language in the world but took its position recently: according to data from Stack Overflow, Python bypassed PHP in 2017, and C # in 2018
And it was predictable, the growing interest in artificial intelligence (AI) contributes to the development of Python. Engineers seem to like using this language for programming. According to Hello Rae, the results of the latest survey of IEEE members, Python-is their favorite.
As stated in IEEE Python survey, in 2017 took the first place – with a small margin from C. It seems that he manages to force R out in many areas (R is a specialized language for working with statistics and big data that is critical for AI and machine learning applications).
It is likely that the availability of Python library modules for statistics and machine learning makes it more attractive language for machine learning than R. In general, you can do much more with Python than with R. R is designed only for working with statistics and big data.
For example, you can use Python to create games, websites, business applications, etc.
So, if you are thinking about working with AI and machine learning, or are already working using R, Python is a language that you definitely need to learn in the new year.
Trend 2019 #2: TypeScript is one of “top 10” most popular languages
The latest report (GitHub Octoverse) claim, that nowadays TypeScript is in the 7th place by popularity. Although, it was the last one of top 10 in 2017. TypeScript is the 3rd fast-growing language.
Trend 2019 #3: ‘Go” simplifies programming
As for IEEE “Go” was included in the top 10 for the first time in 2018. Moreover, this is the fifth fastest-growing language according to IEEE, and the seventh as for GitHub. Its system is very special. So we will try to explain why.
Being an open-source programming language developed by Google “Go” is very close in syntax to C, it’s more like Python when it comes reading and writing, it’s simpler than other languages. Maybe, this is the reason for its rapid growth in popularity.
Apparently, Google is thinking of transferring its products to work with “Go”, which would increase the popularity of this language even more. So choose to master “Go” now.
It will pay off .
Now you know which trends you should pay attention to in 2019. All of them are a great choice for those who want to learn something new.
• Python would be a good option if you plan to do statistical analysis or machine learning on big data.
