This will depend on the company you want to work for. Do a search for job openings in the industries you want to work in and then check the skills requirements. Most companies will list their preferred languages there.

If you want to learn to program then you start with the basics and learn C and C++. Further, python is the easiest language as the syntax is user friendly. In C++, the developer has to create data type before using it however in python it is not needed hence it makes the length of the code sorter and easier to maintain. In today's generation, python is the most used language when it comes to automation because it has inbuilt constructs and libraries.

Mark’s Answer

This depends on where you want to work.


In the game industry, many companies use C# within Unity, or C++ within Unreal 4. Many web games are written in Javascript. If you are going into database programming, you will probably want to learn SQL. Much modern IT work uses Python (I think?), and so on. Take all my answers with a grain of salt -- I have no expertise outside the games industry. However, you get the idea. Research the kind of work you want to do, and focus on the language most used within that field.

Sanket’s Answer

Most of the times, companies expect candidates to know one object oriented language. It can be anything like Java, python, etc. Ability to code quickly and without errors is very important for clearing interviews. You should be very good at algorithms & data structures.

Thank you comment icon So concentrating on a single language like java will do the job? ABHINAV
Thank you comment icon Yes, it will do the job. Make sure you are very good at it along with algorithms & data structures. You can refer to geeksforgeeks website which has good examples of programming questions asked in interviews. Sanket Padawe

Mandeep’s Answer

Java, Python & Javascript as the most popular ones. But it depends on the use case - if you work on lower level components like OS, routers, etc, it will be C/C++. If it is about application logic it might be Java/C++/C#. If you are in the ML area it might be Python/R. If you are in a DevOps role it will be some scripting language like Python/Perl/Ruby/Bash. There is no right and wrong answer here. It really depends on your role and business use-case.
