What Computer Language is going to popular in the future?
I have an adult friend who wants to learn a computer language. It cannot be internet related. What would be the best one to learn? I want to get him a book for Christmas. I just need to know which programming language to get.
C++ is a popular one. Job postings for computer programmers often ask for experience in C++. It is a more technical language, and it could be easy to get lost. Java is a typical introductory language that can prepare you for learning the more advanced languages. Another good introductory language (and the one I started with) is C#. The languages are similar enough where knowing one helps with learning the other, so starting with a less in demand language might not be a bad way to begin.
I would think it all depends how far into the future you want to look. For instance how far away from the type of computer they have in Star Trek ?
Surely voice commanded computers, that respond verbally has to be the next logical step. Like the new E Book readers as soon as they can get a program that doesn't sound like Steven Hawking is reading to you we may all stop reading and just listen.
Why not send your question to somewhere like MIT see what their crystal ball says ?
I dont quite get the cant be internet related. But I would suggest Python its easy to learn fast paced and also very powerful. Side not it can be used on the net but its not just for the net. Its used in a lot of scientific applications also its completely opensource meaning that the code for it is available to any one and thus there is a ton of information online tutorials and so on. there are also a ton of published books most of which are available online for free. Python is a great place to start. I have written a few hubs on it and also have my own blog in currently writing for beginners. You should check it out and refer your friend and he can learn Python right along with me as i dive into the language.
He is somewhere were the is no internet available. He has 4 years to learn something that he always wanted to learn instead of what he did do which was computer hardware. I was just shopping for his Xmas this year.
ahhh ok well Then C++ wold be a good choice as C++ is on every computer.
C++ is a good choice, especially the new C++11/14 standard. Although some other languages can be easier to learn and use (like Java or C#) I thinks that C++ gives more flexibility on the job market.
