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.
