2019 Trend #1: Could Python Catch up to Java?

If you look at the chart above, you’ll see that Python is already the third most popular programming language in the world. According to Stack Overflow, it surpassed C# in popularity in 2018 and PHP in 2017. But Python only recently achieved this status.

Python also topped the IEEE survey in 2017, just barely beating out C. It appears to be replacing R for a lot of uses (R is a specialized language for dealing with statistics and big data — critical for AI and machine learning applications).

It’s likely that the availability of Python libraries for statistics and machine learning has made Python a more attractive language for machine learning than R. Overall, you can do a lot more with Python than you can with R, which is really just for stats and big data. For example, you can use Python to build games, websites, business applications, and a lot more.

So if you’re thinking about getting into AI and machine learning — or if you’re already doing this kind of work in R — Python is a must-learn language for you in 2019.

 

2019 Trend #2: TypeScript is Now a Top 10 Language

According to the latest GitHub Octoverse Report, TypeScript is now the 7th most-used language, up from 10th in 2017 (see the second chart we shared above). And as you can see in the image below, it’s the 3rd fastest growing language overall.

 

2019 Trend #3: “Go” is Making Programming Easier

Go made the IEEE top ten list in 2018 for the first time (see the IEEE Spectrum chart above). It’s also the 5th fastest growing language according to IEEE, and the 7th fastest according to GitHub. It must be pretty special. Let’s see why.

Go is an open-source programming language introduced by Google. It’s syntactically similar to C, but, like Python, is easier than most other languages to read and write. This is perhaps one reason why it’s growing in popularity so quickly.

Go is also strongly-typed (like TypeScript) and you can use it for all sorts of frontend and backend applications. You can also use Go to build concurrent applications, which break the work up into multiple threads during execution. And, amazingly, you can even transpile your Go code into JavaScript.

Apparently, Google is considering transitioning its products to Go, which would help propel the popularity of the language even further. So if you’re looking for a new language to learn in 2019, you can’t go wrong with Go.

According to StackOverflow , it surpassed C# in popularity in 2018 & PHP in 2017. But Python programming language only recently achieved this status. The growing interest in Artificial Intelligence is fueling Python growth and engineers love programming with it.

Also-

According to Stack Overflow Python is the most wanted programming language what you can see in the image below:-

Python was the favourite language of IEEE members in 2018. It also topped the IEEE survey in 2017, just beating out C. It also appears R for a lot of uses. It is likely that the availability of Python libraries for Statistics & Machine Learning has made Python a more attractive language. You can use Python to build games, websites, business applications and more.

So if you are thinking about getting into Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Python is a must learn language for you in 2019.

Demand on job market -

There’s a high demand and career opportunities for Python developers in India. Python has really easy syntax, we really need more people in India to consider it. But then, this is what makes it a great opportunity for an Indian with the skills. When we talk about the number of jobs, there may not be too many for Python in India. But we have an excellent number of jobs per Python programmer. This a good news about Python Careers.

As you can see Python is definitely in demand so you can be almost sure that you’ll get a job.

As Python is used more for AI and IoT, debugging in production will be a thing in 2019, especially on hybrid infrastructures.

If you’re only doing local step debugging during development, a traditonal debugger like gdb works fine. But you don’t want to be stopping your code at breakpoints in production. And if you’re using Python on AWS Lambdas or inside thosands of Kubernetes-orchestrated containers, you are even more limited.

One new production debugging option is Rookout, which works anywhere and is the only option for safely debugging production Python without stopping the code. It basically allows you to create breakpoints that don’t actually break the application but still collect all the relevant debug data like variable states and context.

I think we’ll see more ways of safely debugging live Python in prod this year.

Gosh, we’re talking something from 1991? I got into it a little later.

One has to wonder about all of the variations on the theme that have been observed of late. It’s like permutations without end. One result, to me, is that job requirements become super specific, as if some dialect prevents general understanding.

Oh, in other words? Standardization might be in the offing? It’s nice that JavaScript is available to most browsers, if not all. Too, Google has put some effort in creating an interface for the developer in Chrome that is helpful.

Python? Sits out there awaiting further work. Of course, one might go and borrow some time at one of these on-line facilities. Don’t tell anyone. But, that gets old.

So, 28 years later, some type of stability might be in order?

I am not influenced by Zuck’s comments on h/c/j (which I fell into by laziness, no, wait, it’s because I do more than code - the computer is there for problem solving - not cowboying).

I see that there is a browser-side Python, now. Will look at that.

 

Conclusion

There you have it: The top three programming trends to watch in 2019 are the rise of Python, TypeScript, and Go. All three are great choices if you’re looking for a new language to learn.

You might choose Python if you want to do statistical analysis or machine learning on big data. Or you might decide to take up TypeScript for an easier way to code in JavaScript. If you’re used to coding in C, Go could make your life easier and give you the capability to transpile your code into JavaScript if you need to.

Will new languages like Go and TypeScript make learning JavaScript a thing of the past? That would surely make many new developers happy. But it’s too early to say. What’s certain is that we’ll be seeing a lot more of these three languages (Python, TypeScript, and Go) in 2019.
