A. Where to Go from Here > Programming Languages

Programming Languages

If you’re interested in other programming languages, some that are currently popular are Java, C/C++, C#, PHP, Objective-C, Perl, Ruby, and JavaScript. We’ll take a brief tour of these languages and see how a Hello World program (like the Python version we started with in Chapter 1) would look in each one. Note that none of these languages are specifically intended for beginning programmers, and most are significantly different from Python.

Java

Java (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html) is a moderately complicated programming language with a large built-in library of modules (called packages). A lot of free documentation is available online. You can use Java on most operating systems. Java is also the language used on Android mobile phones.
