I don't care about the application type. Right now I need to just learn one with highest demand of software companies when all different fields are considered together.

  • Also, "mostly used one with highest demand" could have two different answers. Feb 21, 2020 at 10:16
  • I clearly said my requirement. I don't have specifics since I am not targeting any software application right now.All google results I find are targeting specific cases and diffrent type of applications. As a student I just need a general picture to know what is the best to learn right now as my first entry to this area. There I am trying to find the mostly demanded framework by most of the companies. Can you help? Feb 21, 2020 at 11:17
  • Forget about "most popular/in demand". I'm trying to find the framework which has the biggest market share (ie: mostly used in the industry regardless of specific fields). My question is that simple. Feb 22, 2020 at 13:07
  • If I just search it,all I get are related to specific applications or languages. I don't need any specifics. I'm searching for the mostly used one in the industry when all the fields are considered together. Feb 22, 2020 at 13:09

Looking at Stack Overflow's 2019 developer survey (probably the most trusted source in programming) the top programming languages are:

  1. JavaScript

  2. Python (used more in data science & back-end coding)

  3. Java (used more in back-end coding)

  4. C#
