There are so many programming languages you can learn, but if you’re looking to start off with something easier, which one is best?
For anyone who wants to get into the ever-expanding tech world, one of the primary skills for a vast number of jobs is programming.
Depending on the job, certain languages are better to learn than others, and this affects what the most in-demand languages are, too.
However, for someone starting out, which language is supposed to be the easiest one to learn?
WP Engine surveyed almost 1,000 computer programmers to determine how different programming languages compared. The computer programmers were two-thirds male and one-third female.
They were asked a series of questions about a variety of programming languages to determine the best ones for certain goals as well as the easiest and most complex ones for someone to pick up.
While C++ was considered the most versatile programming language, it was far from the easiest one to learn.
So, which programming language took the top spot for being easy to learn? HTML.
As the backbone of many websites, HTML is considered to be the simplest programming language for those who are just getting started. HTML was also named the most intuitive language by those surveyed.
The ease of the language is also favoured by the more experienced programmers. Ranging from one to 20 years of experience, HTML was selected as the language developers were most comfortable using.
