10 Best Programming Languages That You Need To Learn In 2017

TDLR
I guess I am on the right track! Studying JS still quite good in 2017. Swift on the other hand..what the…2625?!?! I dont even..Don’t be alarm when you are first starting out. It’s just good to know. Don’t jump on the bandwagon. Focus on the basic firsts, HTML, CSS and JavaScript. By having a good foundation rules than over knowing 10+ programming languages. Once you master a programming language, you can easily pick up other languages. Gotta keep an eye on the market as well.

Just doing some job trend comparison from March 2016 and March 2017. Slight % differences.
Looks like Go is getting quite popular. Pretty much rest of them drop some %.
