Comparing Programming Languages is a very difficult task. Now, we are going to tell about what surveys are saying about the programming languages that are going to be on the top of the list in 2020. A programming language helps humans to control and instruct machines as a machine language is different from our language, so we have to type in machine language to make the machine understand our words. For this very purpose, there are hundreds of programming languages, many of those languages are outdated whereas there are many new upcoming latest languages to make programming easier. IT companies need languages which are easier and faster to code as it saves so much of their time and makes their work easier. They want the recruits to learn the latest programming languages for the benefit of their IT companies.
