Top Programming Languages of 2014

It was during our project work that I landed on an argument with my colleague on the best programming language for web development. Since both of us knew the pros and cons of each one, thanks to the loads of experience we had, it was an interesting conversation and a revisit to many remote and forgotten topics of each language. After a considerable amount of time that we spent on this topic, we decided to make this discussion viral and set the entire floor ablaze with enriching opinions and heated discussions.

Well, at that moment, there could not have been a better topic for group discussion and enjoy watching the spilling of grey matter of each one!

Well, jokes apart, but a serious thought on this topic made us actually dig into useful and enriching resources who could give unbiased rating of the most popular programming language of 2014. We decided to compile the gathered information in this blog and present it to our readers.

Although, we were aware and pretty sure that this blog was an open invitation for heated debates at work-places and we could imagine our team-mates trying to prove the credentials of the programming language of their expertise and pompously declaring it to be the most supreme.

But let’s leave that to the experts and the ratings that each one has got based on their utility. I.e the rating would differ if it is for the purpose of web development, current trends, and job career requirements or used on social media and open-source hubs.

As an experienced web development company in India, Codebox has catered to multiple and varied needs of clients. Using the latest language has always been on the radar as it offers new and beneficial features and makes the coding process much easier and faster. Probably, languages such as Ruby on Rails, PHP etc have established themselves while they were subsequently launched after the success of html and CSS style sheets. Although, each one has differences in their contribution, the demand from the client to develop at par always gives a gateway to try experimenting with the new platforms.

So coming back to the rating part and leaving behind the growing heated pulse of our team-mates, we have gathered information from authentic sources such Google, IEEE spectrum, GitHub and listed the top programming languages of 2014 in the web development section. The languages are placed in descending order of popularity.
