The experts from the Paradigma consulting firm analyze the possibilities of this programming language and other very powerful ones such as Go and Dart
There are an estimated 600 programming languages, but most people know only a dozen. And yet, as they point out from the technological consultancy Paradigma Digital, the use of one or the other can have a direct impact on a company’s business to the extent that they contribute to the digitization of organizations and programmers to find work.
“Although they seem invisible to the outside, there are programming languages that are impacting the business of companies and we see how startups opt for languages that help them accelerate time-to-market to be more disruptive, ” says Alberto Vara, Python lead in Digital Paradigm.
“If before a product or service was not launched until it had been one hundred percent finished, in the current digital environment and agile methodologies, the continuous integration model prevails and versions that continuously improve the service, just as digital giants do. like Google, Facebook or Amazon ”, he adds.
To help understand the business and employment opportunities behind these languages, the experts at Paradigma Digital focus on these five:
Paradigma experts agree that it is one of the languages with the most future due to the number of advantages it provides, starting with a very simple syntax that can be understood even without knowing how to program, having a very fast learning curve.
In addition, it has one of the largest communities of programmers who share code and libraries for any aspect that a company needs and allows to develop in very few lines of code what in other languages would be hundreds, so its time-to-market it is second to none.
But the virtues of Python don’t stop there. It is an all-terrain language with countless applications for cloud development, desktop applications, scripting, home automation, and in what has grown the most in recent years: in the world of big data and data science. And it is that many scientists and mathematicians have found in Python a high-performance language where they can apply their algorithms in an agile way.
Go: to streamline the transition to the cloud. Despite being a very new language (2009), is supported by Google is one of the languages that is expanding the fastest, occupying the 13th position in the PYPL index and increasing positions every month.
The reason: it has incredible performance, second only to C, and very efficient memory management along with its strong point: concurrency, which saves costs and investment in cloud platforms, memory, and virtual CPUs.
Go has a syntax similar to C, but infinitely simpler. Its use in the US does not stop growing, as does its community. In Spain, it is still struggling to enter the market, as companies are reluctant to change, due to a lack of developers who have extensive experience with this language.
Java: the safe bet in Spain for microservices. Java does not have the fastest learning curve, in theory, but large Spanish companies use it and the vast majority of programmers have known it since university.
Thanks to a large community and frameworks such as Spring, developing microservices architectures in this language is not only very fast to learn, but it also enjoys being one of the best options for this type of architecture, so popular in recent years, since it provides starters of empty containerizable mics from which to start.
Java also has one of the best solutions for streaming systems, events and, as if this were not enough, it is the language used in the highest percentage for Android mobile applications. Let’s not forget that Java allows you to develop desktop applications and microcontrollers.
