15 Hot Programming Languages Trends That You Cannot Miss

While building a software application, the programmers have the option to choose from a number of programming languages.  They have to focus on choosing the right programming language to the software application’s code base clean, organized and maintainable. They cannot pick the right programming language without monitoring the current and emerging trends in programming languages. The developers also need to keep a tab on the top programming languages to learn for keeping themselves updated. The programmers must adopt these hot programming languages trends in 2020 to write custom software applications quickly and efficiently.


The programmers have the option to choose from a wide range of programming languages while writing software applications or learning software development. The programming languages differ from each other in several aspects – programming paradigm support, language features, ecosystem, security vulnerabilities, and community strength. Also, the popularity of programming languages keeps changing from time to time. I wrote on the same topic back in 2016 December and if you see that list you would understand that some of the top programming languages in the 2017 list still exist in the 2021 list. Many websites help novice and experienced programmers to identify the top programming languages to learn in 2021 by comparing the technologies using various parameters. But the programmers must focus on learning and knowing the in-demand programming languages proactively.


Software programmers want to build custom software applications, according to specific business requirements, without writing longer lines of code. At the same time, they also need to focus on keeping the code base readable, structured and maintainable. So the software developers have to keep track of the most recent programming trends to boost their skills, efficiency and proficiency.

Important Update: This is 2020 June: I was trying to update the old post and realized that most of the trends have changed completely. So I chose to write a new post on this topic. Please feel free to visit the new post for the latest programming trends in 2020 and beyond.
