I believe in many of my articles I describe exactly what open-source software is. Let's clarify that again, what is open-source software? Open-Source software is simply source code that anyone can access, modify, or improve on to satisfy their specific needs. There is a wide broad community of software engineers or should I say open-source software engineers that contribute to open-source software globally. So if you're an open-source developer and looking to learn a new programming language the open-source way? Here's a list of opensource programming languages that might appeal to you:
Go also known as GoLang is an open-source programming language developed by Google that makes it easy to build reliable and efficient software. It has gained popularity over the years as one of the most robust and popular backend programming languages, especially for the development of distributed systems and microservices.
Rust is a statically-typed open-source system programming language created at Mozilla Resources aimed at performance and safety, particularly safe concurrency and memory management. Its syntax is similar to that of C++. Memory errors and concurrent computing are issues that Rust addresses that C/C++ programmers have long struggled with.
Ruby was developed in the 1990s and has gained popularity in recent decades. It is an object-oriented, dynamic, interpreted language. Surprisingly, it has a lot in common with Python. Ruby on Rails framework powers plenty of online applications. Developers praise the Ruby programming language for being a simple language to learn and for the short amount of time, it takes to master. These characteristics have resulted in a strong community of Ruby developers and increased interest in the language among new developers.
In conclusion, this list summarizes Opensource programming languages in high demand for the future. If you enjoyed this article consider signing up for our newsletter and don't forget to share it with people that would find it useful. Leave a comment below with a tutorial you would like us to cover.
