These are list of some essentially learnable programming languages.
C is a standardized, general-purpose programming language. It is one of the most pervasive languages and the basis for several others (such as C++). Learning C is crucial. Once you learn C, making the jump to Java or C# is fairly easy, because a lot of the syntax is common. Also, a lot of C syntax is used in scripting languages. If you are a programmer, it's your base for programming as a programmer.
PHP is an open-source server-side, cross-platform, HTML scripting language, especially well-suited for Web development as it can be embedded into HTML pages. It is used for adding a life to HTML code. Main features are: Database Access, File Access, Application Control, Graphics and Extensible.
Java is an object-oriented programming language developed by James Gosling and colleagues at Sun Microsystems in the early 1990s. It is said as "beautiful language" by its programmers and is an alternative to .Net programming of microsoft.
Python is an interpreted, dynamically object-oriented, open-source programming language that utilizes automatic memory management. It is designed to be a highly readable, minimalist language, many say it has a highest level language. Python is used extensively by Google as well as in academia because of its syntactic simplicity.
C# is a general-purpose, compiled, object-oriented programming language developed by Microsoft as part of its .NET initiative, it has evolved from C and C++. It is an essential part of the .Net framework.
Perl is an open-source, cross-platform, server-side interpretive programming language used extensively to process text through CGI programs. Perls power in processing of piles of text has made it very popular and widely used to write Web server programs for a range of tasks. It is essential to learn PHP or perl if you want to develop web Apps.
9. Ruby and Ruby on Rails
Ruby is a dynamic, object-oriented, open-source programming language. Ruby on Rails is an open-source Web application framework written in Ruby that closely follows the MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture. It focuses on simplicity, productivity and letting the computers do the work, in a few years, its usage has spread quickly. As a bonus, many find it easy to learn.
10. VB.Net (Visual Basic .Net)
VB.Net is an object-oriented language implemented on Microsofts .Net framework. VB.Net is believed currently to be very popular and can also be "must-learns. It is currently dominating in workplaces where fast results are required.
