Python

 

A high-level, general-purpose programming language introduced in 1991. Python has become a core language for data science and continues to be a mainstay for back-end web application development.

Java

Java is a general-purpose, high-level programming language that was developed with as few implementation dependencies as possible. It’s consistently one of the most used languages in e-commerce and back-end, server-side business applications, as well as the foundation of most Android applications, because its “write once, run anywhere” capabilities allow it to be used across multiple platforms.

Linux

The Unix-like computer operating system built under the model of free and open-source software and application development, is the preferred operating system for open source engineers and programmers. Today, Linux forms the backend of most of the top 100 websites.

JavaScript

The high-level, dynamic, untyped and interpreted runtime language of interactivity on the web, with more lines of JavaScript written each day than many of the more well-known, top languages like Java or Python.

SQL

The domain-specific programming language standard for storing and retrieving data in an application, SQL — or, Structured Query Language — is the main pillar of the relational database systems (RDBS) that most apps are built on.

Matlab

This older, mathematics manipulation language with roots as far back as the 1980s is devoted to applied mathematics and used heavily in science and engineering; with big data dominating headlines, it’s no surprise it’s seeing a resurgence.

HTML

All webpages and many applications use HTML to define the content within a page, making it a required skill for doing almost anything that touches the web or displays web-formatted information. The most current version is HTML5.

Perl

A stable and versatile scripting and data extraction language, Perl’s traditional popularity and presence in legacy web code is the main reason why it’s still a requirement for many jobs.

Go

A relatively new language — less than 10 years old — created by Google with a reputation for processing speed and low latency. Because of these qualities, it’s great for networking and web servers, stand-alone command-line apps and scripts. It’s not well-suited, however, for desktop or GUI-based apps or system-level programming.
