Top 5 Programming Languages to Learn in 2020 to Get a Job Without a College Degree


Top 5 Programming Languages to Learn in 2020

Now, just like my last few videos, we are going to be ranking the programming languages on three main factors. 

No.1 the time it takes for you learn, even if you're a complete beginner, and make real-world projects. 

No.2, the job market. What is the demand and the overall salary that you can make with this programming language in 2020? 

No.3, what is your overall productivity going to be with this programming language? This really matters when it comes to your own personal development with coding. How fast can you build real-world projects? And when you're working at startups and smaller companies, they need people to be able to build real applications in a much shorter amount of time. 

we talk about different languages, there are multiple programming languages where you can make over $100,000 year. 

Let's continue. 

Number 5, Java. 

Java, Java, Java. It's a pretty amazing programming language that a lot of people know. This is a object-oriented programming language, and this is used in lots of Android applications. That's one of the primary reasons why people use Java as of even today. Lots of big companies are still using Java. There are lots of trading applications made with it as well. It's currently declining a little bit in popularity because of programming languages like Kotlin, which you can now use to create Android applications in. This is why, if you look at the Google Trends, you will see in the last five years Java has a little decline. Outside of that, there's still lots of jobs that are offered for Java, and the salary for an average Java developer in the United States is $103,000 a year according to 

Number 4, Swift. 

Swift is a iOS programming language that is used for Apple. If you ever dreamed of making a app that shows up in the App Store, ranks highly, or you wanna be able to make, you know, the dream of every developer ever, make monthly recurring income or passive income from a app that they created with passion, love, and heart, and put it out in the app store, and people in the Apple world can download it and use it, that is why you would learn Swift. Now, you can freelance with it, or you can get a full-time job. It's a very popular language. It's not getting more popular, but the great thing, it's not also going down. It has been stable over the last five years if you look across on Google Trends. That shows me that it's a very stable programming language, not going anywhere, and is great to invest your time in and to learn it. 

I would say it's really beginner friendly as well. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube that support the learning of it, but not only that, it's a lot of fun. Java is a pain in the ass to learn if you are a complete beginner, but I think Swift is a little bit easier to learn just because you can make stuff and put it on your iOS device, and it's a lot of fun. Awesome programming language. Average salary of a developer in the United States is $115,000 a year, according to 

Number 3, SQL

SQL I call it Sequel. Both ways are completely fine of calling it. This programming language, some people will argue it's not actually a programming language. It ultimately doesn't matter. This is called structured query language. That's what SQL stands for. And why I recommend learning this, and why I think it's so important for everybody to actually know some of this, is almost no matter what programming language you're gonna work with, if you ever dream of creating applications and web applications, you're gonna have to deal with data. 

When you have to deal with data, you're pretty much not gonna get away if you don't understand SQL, okay? So if you wanna make an application that can store data and save information? For example, if you go on Instagram, right? When you Like somebody's comment, or you Like somebody's post, that Like is stored somewhere. Or when you make a post on Instagram or Facebook, that post is stored somewhere. When you log back in, that post is still there. Guess what is saving your post? It's SQL; it's SQL being able to talk to databases, all right? 

So that's why I think this programming language, this language, query language, is very, very important to learn. I put it at number three, but I think this is very, very vital, and almost any type of development you wanna do, especially any web development you wanna do, whether you wanna become a backend developer or a full-stack developer, you kinda have to know SQL. It will serve you really, really well. And the average salary of a SQL developer is $89,000 a year in the United States, according to 

Number 2, JavaScript. 

JavaScript Ooh, this one is a controversial one. Everybody goes crazy. "Why did you pick JavaScript number two? "Why isn't it number one?" (mumbles) Everybody's gonna go crazy in the comments. JavaScript, according to the PYPL index and the Google Trends, JavaScript at number two in popularity compared to the number one language, which I will be talking about after this, but let's get into what can you do with JavaScript? JavaScript is a very incredible programming language. If you have dreams and aspirations to do anything related to web development, creating web applications, you're probably gonna need to learn JavaScript. Whether you wanna do full-stack or front-end development or backend development, it would help you to know JavaScript to a good extent. JavaScript is a very popular language. If you even look on GitHub, there's always a new framework coming out for it. And there are tons of amazing frameworks and libraries always being produced for JavaScript, right? Like, for example, you got React, people talk about Vue.js, there's all kinds of craziness that goes around JavaScript. Even if you forget all the trendy stuff that's happening around, it's just a great programming language. Every web browser supports it and runs JavaScript, and I think it's one of the must-know tools that you need in your arsenal when it comes to programming and web development especially. The average salary of a JavaScript developer, according to, in the United States is $113,000 a year. 

Number One programming language, and now, it's not just according to me anymore, guys. That's a beautiful thing. According to Google Trends in the last five years, it's now officially the number one most popular language, and also according to the PYPL index, it is the number one most popular programming language. 

Number 1 Python

What's amazing about Python, it's a general purpose programming language that you can use for many different things, but it's also very powerful. Before I get into the use cases of it, let me just tell you what types of companies use Python. So Google is built off of Python. YouTube is built off of Python. Dropbox, Quora, Hipmunk, Reddit, Instagram, and the list goes on. This is just to give you a taste of what types of things you can build with Python. So if you want to do web development, you could do it with Python. There are many different frameworks and libraries in Python that support and allow you to do lots of data science applications. And the real reason why Python has become so goddamn popular is because of data science. Data science has grown so much over the last few years, right? Like, look at the self-driving cars, the self-checkout at Walmart that's being implemented, Google self-driving cars, Tesla self-driving cars, and lots of the automation and machine learning algorithms that are being done as of today, a lot of them are being done in Python, and that has skyrocketed its growth. 

Why I really put it at number one is because it's very beginner friendly. Out of all of the last four languages that I've talked about this is probably the easiest to pick up. But the amazing thing is, you can build real-world projects with Python and do that very, very fast. You can do web development really well with Python with its frameworks, like Django or Flask, those are unbelievable, and you can go on and do data science with it as well. I do think the language that you pick and choose and stick with matters. It's just like where you live matters and defines your culture and your accent, and everything around you, and kind of the things that you grow up to do. 

So I think the language that you start off with first defines a lot of things you're gonna do, right? For example, if you start with Swift and learn a lot of Swift, you're probably gonna become, or much more likely to be influenced by, iOS applications 'cause you're spending a lot of time building them and learning them, and you'll very likely end up doing something in the iOS section. If you learn Java, you're gonna spend a lot of time around Android applications. So it's really important what your goal is. If your goal is to make Android apps, go with Java. If your goal is to make iOS apps, go with Swift. If your goal is to just do web development and that's kind of it, go with JavaScript and stick with node.js and all of those frameworks. If your goal is to just do stuff with databases and become a data analyst and specialize in that section, go with SQL. But if your goal is to do web development, or you wanna do machine learning or data science, or any of those things, then you definitely wanna stick with Python. It's easy, gives you tons of flexibility, and the other amazing reason is the average salary for a developer in the United States, according to, is $118,000 a year. 

So there you have it, all five programming languages that are incredible for you to learn in 2020 to get a job without even needing a college degree, as long as you have the skillset, the determination, and the persistence to go through.
