A Guide to Programming Languages

Many people believe that the programming language doesn’t affect the overall project because any language will suffice. But that is actually quite wrong. Whether you are doing your own programming or hiring a development company like Iblesoft, it is essential that you look into what is the most suitable programming languages for your business. Essentially, you shouldn’t base your company’s fortune on a random language.

We say this because often times businesses don’t pay attention to technology. Nearly 90% of entrepreneurs don’t know or focus on the programming language that structures their website or application. They just go with the flow and base decisions off of business trends. Although that may be good sometimes it does not necessarily mean that businesses shouldn’t opt for a technology that truly fits their infrastructure. The more thought you put into the technology you want to implement into your business, the more benefits you can gain out of it.  

Choosing a Programming Language That Fits Your Business

There are plenty of programming languages out there and each one has its own cool and exclusive features. In fact, having so many choices can make it hard to just choose one but selecting the right one can make all the difference. You can choose from Python, JavaScript, Ruby on Rails, C++, C#, PHP, SQL, JavaScript, IOL and so many more.

Lucky for you, most of the time, high quality sites or apps are developed by combining of two or three different languages. That could make your decision a little easier, but we recommend consulting with a professional before taking on such a task.

Remember, a programmer must know how and where to use the language correctly. Every language is meant to work best within different environments and some are meant for certain functions. For example, Java is the core language that helps improve a web app’s functionality. It runs across various platforms regardless of the server while Python, another language, uses a straightforward syntax that makes writing code easier. Giants like Google, Instagram and Pinterest use Python. But that doesn’t make it the best language for every web development project. 

In order to choose the best web language for your project, you need to understand the different programming languages. We can help with that! However, in order for us to help you do that we need you to take a few things into consideration first.

What’s Your Platform?

The most popular operating systems like Linux and MAC OS allow development in basic languages like HTML. However, for intense programming in these systems, Linux is necessary.  It offers extraordinary customization abilities, like UNIX OS, but with the help of Xcode, you can use compilers for Objective-C, C++ and Swift.

Also, ASP.NET projects support the Windows platform but you can pay to use it in Linux. Within Linux and Windows you can use the ASP.NET platform that offers VBScript as its Active Scripting Language which supports various programming languages like VB.Net, Visual C#, C++, Visual J and JScript.

What Type of Development Do You Need?

There are two types of development: Frontend and Backend. The Frontend refers to the part of the web that you can see and interact with. This type of development usually refers to web designers that use Photoshop and Fireworks and code with HTML, CSS, JavaScript or jQuery. The majority of what you see when using the Internet is a mix of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript all being controlled by your computer’s browser.

The Backend refers to three parts of development: a server, an application and a database. This type of development is done by backend developers using programming languages like PHP, Ruby, Python, NodeJS and so on. In oder to make development easier and faster they usually use frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Cake PHP, and Code Igniter to compliment the languages.

So, now that we cleared that up you have to decide whether you want to use front end or back end development? Or maybe even both. That combination is used by companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon that use AngularJS in the Frontend and Python and Java for the Backend. Our developers use both Frontend and Backend technology stacks because client and server side languages are necessary to execute a successful web project. You might choose to go enhance just one side and that’s okay too.

What is Your Programming Goal?

Okay now you know what platform you’re working with and the type of development you’re looking for. The next step is to consider your programming goal. If you think your ideal language based on these things might be to complex then consider taking web development services. That’s what developers want to do, help you reach that goal and make your life easier.

But if you think you can take on the programming on your own for a simple task, then you can. Most programming languages are Open Source which means they’re not only free, they also have a huge support systems. You can get advice from online communities all over the world. Just keep in mind that you will have to learn the language you choose so keep in mind the most effective way to reach your goal.

Which Is the Best Web Language?

These are considered the best programming languages to develop an awesome web application.

JavaScript:  This language has become way more popular than Java and PHP. Not only is it easy to install, it is also already present in many browsers. This makes JavaScript a very powerful language to use.

C#: This is a popular programming language for web app development. We previously discussed the ASP.NET platform because it is a common platform for complex web apps. These are mainly based on C# as the core language along with visual basic or any of the other .NET languages.

Regardless of the language that you choose it always connects you to another language through basic syntax. But each one has its own features. For instance,  PHP and Ruby on Rails are both Open Source. Yet, PHP has many more options while RoR is easy to use and has many features.

Based on that there can’t really be a programming language champ. But there can be a winner for your kind of project. 

Hiring the Right Programmers

To deliver an outstanding website or application strong programming knowledge is required. That’s a known fact. Coding experts can find errors and fix them right away instead of dealing with them later on. Remember, even the smallest of errors can have the potential to debilitate the functionality of your site or app which can hinder your business.

It can even directly affect the customers that use your site or app frequently as well as potential customers. If customers find your app or site to be unresponsive or non-functional they will get frustrated and you may lose some customers. 

Make sure you have a high-quality, robust and responsive end product by looking for the right programming guidance. Even if it comes from hiring professional programmers or programming consultants. 

Programming Consultants

As a business owner, you may know the ins and outs of your business operations but you may fall short when it comes to technology. That’s understandable because an expert won’t know everything about anything, they focus on certain topics. That is why having a strong team with different expertise is so important to propel your business forward.

Part of that team includes IT guys, web designers and expert developers. Iblesoft wants to make up that part of your team, but if you already have those people working for you, then sometimes some fresh input and advice can help. That is why we offer consultants for all of our services. We want to provide you with all the guidance you need.
