Best Programming Languages to Learn in 2013: The Elite Eight

Best Programming Languages to Learn in 2013: The Elite Eight
Updated on May 5, 2014 Having spent more than 5 years in software development and the computer programming arena, one of the most common questions I am asked is: This is a question that is asked by beginners, as well as experts. As with many important questions, the answer is not simple. There are many factors that should be taken into account while deciding a programming language to learn. Technology evolves in matter of weeks and by the time you become expert in a particular software technology, it can already be considered obsolete. In addition to that, another interesting aspect of programming that I noticed is that not only programmers and software engineers are interested in learning new programming languages, but people from totally different walks of life are also into it. Now back to the top 10. 1. I vividly remember that the first programming language course that I had in my university was of C language. 2. 3. Java was developed by James Gosling, in 1990 at Sun Microsystems. 5.

The Reverse Engineers Toolkit I remember when I first got started in reverse engineering. Well, let’s be honest. It was cracking commercial software. but I digress. Anyway, when one first starts getting introduced to this world, it doesn’t take long to learn a very important tenet: Tools are King.

R Programming - Manuals R Basics The R & BioConductor manual provides a general introduction to the usage of the R environment and its basic command syntax. Code Editors for R Several excellent code editors are available that provide functionalities like R syntax highlighting, auto code indenting and utilities to send code/functions to the R console. Programming in R using Vim or Emacs Programming in R using RStudio Integrating R with Vim and Tmux Syntactic sugar For example, many programming languages provide special syntax for referencing and updating array elements. Abstractly, an array reference is simply a procedure of two arguments: an array and a subscript vector, which could be expressed as get_array(Array, vector(i,j)). Instead, many languages provide special syntax like Array[i,j] . Similarly an array element update is abstractly something like set_array(Array, vector(i,j), value), but many languages provide syntax like Array[i,j] := value.
