Programming Languages

As we know, to communicate with a person, we need a specific language, similarly to communicate with computers, programmers also need a language is called Programming language.

What is a Programming Language?

A programming language is a computer language that is used by programmers (developers) to communicate with computers.

A programming language is mainly used to develop desktop applications, websites, and mobile applications.

Types of programming languageprogramming languages

1. Low-level programming language

  • Machine-dependent (0s and 1s) programming language
  • No need of need of a compiler or interpreter
  • Can be run very fast.

Low-level language is further divided into two parts –

  1. Machine Language
  2. Assembly Language

2. High-level programming language

  • Designed for developing user-friendly software programs and websites
  •  Requires a compiler or interpreter to translate the program into machine language
  •  Easy to read, write, and maintain

A high-level language is further divided into three parts –

  1. Procedural Oriented programming language
  2. Object-Oriented Programming language
  3. Natural language

3. Middle-level programming language

  • Lies between the low-level programming language and high-level programming language
  •  Supports the features of high-level programming
  • User-friendly language 

Most commonly used Programming Language

As we all know, the programming language makes our life simpler. Currently, all sectors (like education, automobiles, and more ) completely depend upon the programming language.

There are dozens of programming languages used by the industries. Some most widely used programming languages are given below –

1. Python

Python is one of the most widely used user-friendly programming languages.It is mostly used in Machine learning, Artificial intelligence, Big Data, GUI based desktop applications, and Robotics.

2. Java


Java is a simple, secure, platform-independent, reliable, architecture-neutral high-level programming language. Mainly used to develop bank, retail, information technology, android, big data, research community, web, and desktop applications.

3. C

c program

C is a popular, simple, and flexible general-purpose computer programming language. It is a combination of both low-level programming language as well as a high-level programming language. It is used to design applications like Text Editors, Compilers, Network devices, and many more.

4. C++


C++ is one of the thousands of programming languages that we use to develop software. It is similar to the C programming language but also includes some additional features such as exception handling, object-oriented programming, type checking, etc.

5. PHP

php program

PHP stands for Hypertext Preprocessor. It is an open-source, powerful server-side scripting language mainly used to create static as well as dynamic websites.


Programming languages are one kind of computer language, and are used in computer programming to implement algorithms. Most programming languages consist of instructions for computers. There are programmable machines that use a set of specific instructions, rather than general programming languages.
