13 Best Programming Languages to Learn in 2017

The new year motivated us to think about learning a new programming language. Inspired by Alexander Falks’ post “Learn a new programming language this summer” we are opening the learning season 2017: What programming languages should I learn in 2017?

What programming languages should I learn” is one of the most popular questions these days. It’s complicated. There are so many languages to choose from these days.

It’s still up to you which programming languages to try, but you will have a pretty good overview to start from.

Ready?
