I: Introduction

I know you are always curious about what is the best programming language. So I will tell you the top 5 programming languages that you can use for your next web app development. These programming languages are PHP, Ruby, Python, C# and Java. Let us see what each language is famous for, whether it is good for creating a website or developing mobile apps.

II: Body

PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) is the most popular web programming language today. As one of the first web-based languages, it's had more than twenty years to develop its libraries and frameworks. PHP powers over 80% of the top million websites on the internet. Some major sites that run on PHP are Wikipedia, WordPress, Facebook, Reddit, Yahoo! Mail, Goodreads, etc.

Ruby is an object-oriented programming language which runs on almost any computing platform. It was inspired by Perl and Smalltalk, and designed to be interactive and concise. It features a simple syntax which makes it easy to learn and fun to use.

Python is a widely used high-level programming language for general-purpose programming. Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C++ or Java. The language was conceived in the late 1980s and its implementation was completed in early 1990. Python has a design philosophy that emphasizes code readability, notably using significant whitespace. It provides constructs that enable clear programming on both small and large scales. Python supports multiple programming paradigms, including object-oriented, imperative and functional programming or procedural styles. It features a dynamic type system and automatic memory management and has a large and comprehensive standard library.

C# is a multi-paradigm programming language encompassing strong typing, imperative, declarative, functional, generic, object-oriented (class-based), and component-oriented programming disciplines. It was developed by Microsoft within its .NET initiative. C# is one of the programming languages designed for the Common Language Infrastructure. The ECMA standard defines it as a "multi-paradigm" language, meaning that it supports many programming models: object-oriented, imperative, functional, generic, and component-oriented. Microsoft has positioned C# as "the premier language for .NET". C# may be used by applications that target the .NET Framework, Mono and other Common Language Runtime implementations. Most of Microsoft's .NET Framework components expose APIs in C# to support writing software without regard to the underlying implementation platform.

Java is a general purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "write once, run anywhere", meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation. Java applications are typically compiled to bytecode that can run on any Java virtual machine (JVM) regardless of computer architecture. As of 2016, Java is one of the most popular programming languages in use, particularly for client-server web applications, with a reported 9 million developers. A 2012 survey showed that Java was still the most loved programming language and preferred development environment among developers. As of May 2016, Java was the second most commonly taught language at US universities in first-year instruction.
