The Best Programming Language To Learn in 2016

The latest report assesses the popularity of programming languages using the number of skilled engineers and search engine rankings.

(Swift)
If you want to develop native iOS or Mac OS apps, then you basically need to learn Swift. Native apps outperform cross-platform hybrid apps, and the built-in SpriteKit makes it easier than ever to build 2D games with Swift.

(Java)
If you want to develop native Android apps, then Java is the way to go. Java is a general-purpose language best known for being relatively simple to use and scalable. The Java community is huge as well, so you'll be able to get a lot of support when learning the language.



The results:
Java
C
C++
C#
Python
PHP
VisualBasic.NET
JavaScript
Assembly Language
Ruby
Perl
Delphi
VisualBasic
Swift
MATLAB
Pascal
Groovy
Objective-C
R
PL/SQL

The BNA iTech report analyzes the work of 14,478 students participating on almost 10,1128 projects during the 2014-2016 academic year. 

The results show technologies used, although it’s intermingled with programming languages:
HTML/CSS
JavaScript
Python
Java
C/C++
PHP
Objective-C
C#
Swift
JSON
Ruby
XML
Ajax
Shell
Processing
Lua
CoffeeScript
Go
MATLAB
OpenGL

The results mostly highlight what students are working on in their spare time. The projects tend to be dominated by native apps, embedded micro-controllers and wearables, which can be fairly niche technologies in the business world. In addition, these are languages the students wanted to use. Whether they were viable or pleasurable is another matter!
