There are a lot of popular languages, but in my opinion the one you should learn is the language that best solves the kind of problems you are interested in solving. Once you know how to program, you'll be surprised how easy it is to learn multiple languages. Programming languages are a lot like tools in a toolbox. Some of them are general-use, while others are really good at solving very specific problems.


You can't go wrong with JavaScript. It's a language that's easy to pick up and it's used by lots of developers because it's the only language that works in a web browser. So if you want to build things that you can access on web pages, JavaScript is the language for you.


If you want to make things for an Android phone, you'll have to learn Java. It's more complicated and has a slightly higher learning curve, but it is more powerful too.


If you want to build something for an iPhone, you'll want to look at Swift.


If you want to build desktop applications for Windows, you should look at C#, although you can also build things with JavaScript now.


There are so many possibilities and things to explore.

Hi Madison, thanks for submitting a question! I 100% agree with Brian in that it depends what types of problems you're looking at and what you're interested in coding. I majored in Management Information Systems (MIS) in college and now view/analyze script from multiple languages. As Brian mentioned, some examples of code languages that are more basic are Java, JavaScript, HTML, and C#.


However, there are newer languages that could be beneficial to learn. In my opinion, I think it's a good idea to start with a more basic type of code that most companies currently have, and then try newer languages such as Python and Ruby. Here are two great articles I found that I think will help:

-https://www.codementor.io/codementorteam/beginner-programming-language-job-salary-community-7s26wmbm6


I'm happy to see you're interested in code--we need more women in our field! I hope this helps and best of luck to you!
