- Python Python was created in 1991, and it was created to make sure that the code was readable. This was one of the reasons why Python is so popular for people learning coding for the first time. However, in terms of websites, python is rarely used, however, Google, one of the worlds biggest and most popular search engines uses Python.
- C# and C++ C# is a semi-new coding language and is used by Microsoft. However, C# only runs on windows. C++, was used in the creating of many Adobe and Microsoft programs and applications. C++ is the best coding language for applications that require video and audio processing.
