Friday, September 06, 2013 It's all about being innovative and keeping a tap of innovative technologies. If you are a developer looking to understand futuristic technologies, this article is a must-read for you. We have presented 10 programming languages that will make a difference in the way IT world works. These languages are set to change the IT landscape. Have a look:

Dart

This was created by Google to counter the weakeness that comes on JavaScript when it works with web applications in large numbers. The Dart language, Google hopes, will become the new vernacular of web programming. It uses uses C-like syntax and keywords. One significant difference, however, is that while JavaScript is a prototype-based language, objects in Dart are defined using classes and interfaces, as in C++ or Java. Dart also allows programmers to optionally declare variables with static types.

Open source languages, Programming languages, object code, JavaScript, PHP, Flash/ActionScript, Chapel, Google Go, haxe,X10, Zimbu, Fantom, Opa, f#, Google, XML, Ceylon, Dart, Java,




Ceylon

This language is being developed by Gavin King who has denied that the language being developed at Red Hat, is meant to be a "Java killer." Among King's gripes are Java's verbose syntax, its lack of first-class and higher-order functions, and its poor support for meta-programming. In particular, he's frustrated with the absence of a declarative syntax for structured data definition, which he says leaves Java "joined at the hip to XML." Ceylon aims to solve all these problems.

Go

Google is understood to have created a programming language called Golang, or Go. This, say some tech analysts, might just end up replacing Java altogether. This language is a general-purpose programming code that works on everything from application development to systems programing. While it is still a work in progress, and the language specification may change, developers can actually start working with it today itself.

F#

This has been popular for a long time with computer scientists and academia. F# (pronounced "F-sharp"), is a Microsoft language that has been designated to be both functional and practical. Given the fact that it is a first-class language on the .Net Common Language Runtime (CLR), it can access all of the same libraries and features as other CLR languages, such as C# and Visual Basic.

Opa

Web development is too complicated. Even the simplest web app requires countless lines of code in multiple languages: HTML and JavaScript on the client, Java or PHP on the server, SQL in the database, and so on. Opa doesn't replace any of these languages individually. Rather, it seeks to eliminate them all at once, by proposing an entirely new paradigm for Web programming. In an Opa application, the client-side UI, server-side logic, and database I/O are all implemented in a single language, Opa.

Fantom

Should you develop your applications for Java or .Net? If you code in Fantom, you can take your pick and even switch platforms midstream. That's because Fantom is designed from the ground up for cross-platform portability. The Fantom project includes not just a compiler that can output bytecode for either the JVM or the .Net CLI, but also a set of APIs that abstract away the Java and .Net APIs, creating an additional portability layer.

Zimbu

This particular language takes its particles and components from languages across the board and is the brainchild of Bram Moolenaar. He was the creator of the Vim text editor. The language is slated to be fast, concise, portable, and easy-to-read. Its syntax is unique and idiosyncratic, yet feature-rich. It uses C-like expressions and operators, but its own keywords, data types, and block structures. It supports memory management, threads, and pipes. Portability is a key concern. Although Zimbu is a compiled language, the Zimbu compiler outputs ANSI C code, allowing binaries to be built only on platforms with a native C compiler.

X10

This is a parallel processing language that works was once a specialised niche of software development. However, with the increase in multicore CPUs and distributed computing, today's programming languages aren't keeping pace with the trend. This is why IBM Research is developing X10, a language designed specifically for modern parallel architectures, with the goal of increasing developer productivity "times 10." X10 handles concurrency using the partitioned global address space (PGAS) programming model. Code and data are separated into units and distributed across one or more "places," making it easy to scale a program from a single-threaded prototype (a single place) to multiple threads running on one or more multicore processors.

haXe

haXe (pronounced "hex") is more than just any random portable language. It is a multi-platform language, which is capable of targeting diverse operating environments, that range from native binaries to interpreters and virtual machines. It can be used by developers and then compiled into object code, JavaScript, PHP, Flash/ActionScript, or NekoVM bytecode today.

Chapel

This is a brilliant language to work with in a world characterised by high-performance computing. The languge was designed with supercomputing and clustering in mind, and is part of Cray's Cascade Program, an ambitious high-performance computing initiative funded in part by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA). Chapel's syntax draws from numerous sources. In addition to the usual suspects (C, C++, Java), it borrows concepts from scientific programming languages such as Fortran and Matlab. Its parallel-processing features are influenced by ZPL and High-Performance Fortran, as well as earlier Cray projects.

I think Elixir should be included in that list. It is a fairly young language but emits the programmer happiness mantra of Ruby on top of the Erlang VM.

the programmer happiness mantra of Ruby Im glad Im not the only one who gets a buzz from Ruby. In one sentence Ive been sucked into looking into Elixir.

I recommend some other young languages those are still in Ver1.0 but actively have been discussing within their communities. They are Julia Idris Rust Nimrod ManastechCrystal.

This list is missing two very important programming languages. The first one is Haskel and the second is Scala. Haskell may not become adopted by main-stream but it has contributed more than any other language to the advance of programming languages. I am astonished not to see Scala since it is having a non negligible impact in advancing the adoption of functional programming.

I prefer JuliaRustIdrisNimrodCrystal. They are less Ver1 .0

I agree with Kydos. I am not sure where to place their bias.
