The future of Coding

The future of Coding

Here are some languages in which future algorithms will be written

The programming landscape around the world is changing. There are a host of new languages that have come up, the makers of which promise developers faster and bug free coding. With the convergence of various technologies and emerging technologies, developers are also experimenting with new languages. However, the future of programming will also have a few languages that are not so new. Here are some languages in which future algorithms will be written. Depending on the kind of projects your enterprise is undertaking, you might want to hire some of these skills.

R

Originally created by statisticians and scientists trying to make sense out of huge swathes of data, R is the natural choice for those of you implementing Big Data analytics project. It’s packaged with many standard functions used in data analytics and some useful algorithms available as freely distributed libraries.

Swift

We heard about Swift in 2014 when Apple introduced it as a replacement for Objective-C. Over the years it became popular with iOS developers as it offered an alternative to error prone Objective-C helping them make their code much smaller and faster to write. More recently Swift has been passed on to open source and it can be used by non-iOS developers too. You will need people with Swift skills in your mobile projects.

Java 8

While Java as a language has been around for more than two decades, this enhanced version of Java came only a few years ago. Developers who have worked on Java 8 say that they can improve application performance without any additional work or tuning.  Also moving applications to Java 8 is expected to result in some automatic increase in performance speeds. It also has productivity improvements in terms of Lambda expressions and streams API.

Solidity

For those of you planning to implement blockchain, Solidity is one of the choices. This language comes handy for those looking for decentralized applications and smart contracts on the Ethereum platform. Solidity may not stay as popular as it is today over the long term as rivals of Ethereum such as Cardano, NEO and EOS could grab the limelight. But for now Ethereum is still the second larget cryptocurrency by market capitalization.

Kotlin

Kotlin is Android’s answer to Apple’s Swift. The language is fully supported by Google as an alternative to Java for writing Android applications. Many major companies around the globe have switched to Kotlin for developing their Android apps. It is also interoperable with Java. So it’s possible for you to replace Java with Kotlin in your enterprise applications.

Python

Python has been around for a long time now. The language can be used to generate functional, object oriented and procedural styles of code. Though it is a simple language, it powers applications in many new technologies that include machine learning, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things and Data Analytics. Like C++, its functionality will take it well into the future.
