Basic Programming Languages (and Skills) That Web Developers Must Know

Here are some of the most commonly used and basic programming languages that you should look for when hiring a web developer:

  1. HTML/CSS

    HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is a basic programming language that provides the fundamental structure of websites. As such, it serves as the starting point for web developers in creating content for websites. This structure is then enhanced and modified by CSS (Cascading Style Sheet), which dictates the presentation, formatting, and layout of a website on the front-end. Web developers may also enhance what HTML has done using JavaScript, modifying how various elements on the web page will behave or interact with site user actions.

  2. JavaScript & jQuery

    JavaScript is vital to front-end web development and is one of the most popular and friendliest basic programming languages among web developers, especially for beginners. It has a flexible and forgiving syntax that is compatible with all major browsers. JavaScript allows web developers to create interactive web pages. Moreover, it helps them display content dynamically to their site users. JavaScript works with jQuery, a fast, small, and feature-rich JavaScript library that streamlines HTML document traversal and manipulation, animation, event handling, and Ajax with an API that works across major browsers.

  3. Laravel

    Laravel is an open-source web framework that web developers use in application development. It is robust and easy to understand, and it follows the model-view-controller (MVC) design pattern. Laravel reuses existing components of various frameworks to create web applications that are more structured and pragmatic. It offers web developers features that promote the speed of web development, including CodeIgniter, Yii, and other basic programming languages such as Ruby and Rails. More importantly, building a website using Laravel will help increase your web security, thereby preventing web attacks.

  4. Python

    Python is one of the easiest and most basic programming languages for first-time web developers. It is an object-oriented, interpreted, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Also, it has an easy to learn syntax that ushers readability. Because of this, you can cut down on costs for program maintenance. Moreover, this programming language supports modules and packages, making it useful for program modularity and code reuse. Python has an extensive library. Developers created it with an OSI-approved open-source license compatible with all major platforms, making it distributable for commercial use.

  5. C++

    The C++ programming language is a cross-platform, object-oriented programming language, which web developers and programmers use to build high-performance applications. It was developed as an extension to the C language and provided programmers with high-level control over their system memory and resources. Moreover, C++ provides a clear structure to programs and applications and allows web developers to reuse code, which reduces development costs. As one of the most widely used and basic programming languages in the world today, you can find C++ in most operating systems, Graphical User Interfaces (GUI), and embedded systems.

  6. PHP

    The Hypertext Preprocessor or PHP is among the most popular open-source programming languages. You can embed it into HTML and use it for web development. Web pages using PHP contain HTML with embedded code to produce an action. Its code allows web developers to jump into and out of PHP mode. In comparison with other basic programming languages, PHP executes code on the server. Then, PHP generates HTML and sends it to the client. Then, the client receives it, but he does not have any idea what code was used there. It is easy to use for beginners but offers endless possibilities for professional web developers and programmers.
