Python is the best programming language for beginners. It has a simple syntax that is easy to understand and use. It is widely used in web development, system programming and many other areas. With Python, you can create programs with a graphical interface, system and scientific applications, command line utilities, games, etc. Django, Flask and Pyramid are the main Python frameworks that make it easy and convenient.


  • Website development
  • Web documents
  • Website maintenance

HTML is a HyperText Markup Language. It is responsible for formatting the appearance of information on a website. It does not have the same functionality as other programming languages in this list and is limited to creating and structuring text on the site. Sections, headings, links, and paragraphs are all part of an HTML domain.


  • Database management

C# is a universal, procedural, imperative general-purpose programming language. C had a great influence on other programming languages, especially C++, which was originally designed as an extension for C. This language is one of the most popular in the world, given the number of programmers who know it and the amount of software it writes available under free code licenses. In addition, C# is ideal for creating mobile applications and games. 


  • System/network programming
  • Audio/video editing
  • Big Data

Go (golang) is a compiled multithreaded programming language developed inside Google. The Go language was designed to create high-performance applications running on modern distributed systems and multi-core processors. The advantage of this language is that it avoids mistakes made by negligence, simplifies reading and understanding code, makes the code unambiguous. Go also has a simple syntax, something similar to C. It is used by companies such as Uber and Google.


  • Operating systems
  • VR 
  • Web browsers

Rust is a multifaceted compiled general-purpose programming language that combines functional and procedural programming paradigms with a typical object system. The language has strict typing and focuses on safe work with memory, ensuring high parallelism of tasks (the ability to perform thousands or even millions of subprocesses). It allows developers to work in different programming styles. In syntax, it is similar to C++.
