What are the programming languages? Explain

There are many programming languages are popular in all purposes. Each language has some specialities as well as some advantages and disadvantages.

Programming languages are developed to instruct the computer system or we can say that programming language is used to make solutions to user problems.

In this post, I cover a few computer programming languages based on their popularity or usages.

First thing first…

What is a programming language?

A programming language is a software that is used to develop a new software/application. You can create your own computer program that can solve any user problem like a calculator, a simple notepad etc.

We have developed thousands of computer programming as per our need. few of them are server-side, few of them are client-side, some languages are script type etc.

Below, I mentioned some computer programming languages. We can use these languages to develop programs.

Types of programming languages

  • Procedural Programming Language
  • Functional Programming Language
  • Object-oriented Programming Language
  • Scripting Programming Language
  • Logic Programming Language

Procedural programming Language

Procedural language executes the whole program code in a sequence. These languages use switch statements if statements and loops.

Functional programming language

When we divide a big problem into small functions and each function acts as a separate problem’s answer. And we merge all these functions into a single big program; we get a complete program for our problem.

Object-oriented programming language

It is the advanced form of programming language. It follows abstraction feature, it means actual processing always hidden from the world. This programming language encapsulates the data into an object.

Scripting Programming Language

They follow the procedural as well as OPPs concept. But mostly they are a weakly type of language.

programming languages

I think you understand programming language types.

Let’s see some great programming languages.

C Language- I love it.

This is also known as mother language. If you understand C/C++ you can understand any language within one month. C language was developed by Dennis Ritchie.

C is a block structural and functional programming language. You can also develop your program with the help of functions. It is based on the compiler.

C++ Language

It is the successor of C language. It also based on the compiler. You can enjoy the OPPs programming methodology. It is easy to learn and understand.

PHP Language

Php stands for Hypertext Preprocessor (earlier called, Personal Home Page). You can use this language to develop your web pages. It is easy to implement and its programming syntax is so easy. Anyone can learn it easily.
