As we know already the software industry is touted to be one of the highest paying industries making programmers the richest among the lot. Certainly the knowledge of programming language can be of high merit on your resume.In this article post i will be listing out 10 of the most sought-after programming languages to get you up to speed and where to learn them online.

1. C language
C is one of the most widely used programming languages and the syntax of Java and C# is derived from it. Its efficient design construct use machine instructions, and therefore applications that had formerly been coded in assembly language could be run on C compiler. C has facilities for structured programming and allows lexical variable scope and recursion and C compilers work seamlessly with majority of available computer architectures and operating systems.
It is a general purpose multi-paradigm spanning compiled language that has both high-level and low-level language features. The programming language has proved itself really powerful with applications including domains related to software, server and client and entertainment. Firefox, Winamp and most of the Adobe programs are coded on C++.
It is a general-purpose, object-oriented programming language that adds Smalltalk-style messaging to the C programming language. The language is now mostly used in Apple iOS and Mac OS X and is of great demand.
PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. High-speed scripting with caching, augmented compiling code plug-ins is what makes the future of the language. High-profile sites including Facebook, Wikipedia and WordPress run on PHP.
C# is a simple, modern, general-purpose, object-oriented programming language developed by Microsoft within its .NET initiative led by Anders Hejlsberg. C# is a general-purpose language used to develop software for Microsoft and Windows platforms.
With less complex codes, Python can be easily learned by a beginner. This particular language is used in writing scripts for websites and mobile apps. Some of the web apps and internet platforms that use Python include Instagram, Pinterest Google, Yahoo! and NASA.
SQL is the world’s most widely used open source relational database management system that runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases. The scope of SQL includes data insert, query, update and delete, modification and data access control.
Ruby is a dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. It powers the Ruby on Rails (or Rails) framework, which is used on Scribd, GitHub, Groupon and Shopify
Java is purely an object-oriented programming language. It is intended to let application developers “write once, run anywhere” (WORA), making the program to run on other platform without recompilation. Being used as a standard for enterprise software, web-based content, games, mobile apps, and Android operating system, the demand for Java programming language has increased in leaps and bounds.
