Best Programming Languages To Learn In 2022


Careers in the IT sector have significantly impacted today’s dynamic work environment. Studies reveal that jobs in software development are expected to rise more in future. Programming languages are the backbone of every online service we are using today. 

Programming languages are a mode of communication used by humans directing computers to use a particular syntax and carry out specific tasks. With the ever growing impact of digitalisation in every field, the scope and number of programming languages are increasing immensely. Wikipedia states that there are approximately 700 programming languages with new additions made to this list every year.

IT organisations highly demand for qualified software engineers with detailed knowledge of programming languages. Predictions show that this trend shall continue to rise with each passing year. ECA’s internship program 2022 provides some of the best training programs for candidates willing to opt for a software development career. Let us witness the top performing programming languages you can learn this year to enhance your software knowledge.

1. Python

Being regarded as the “King of coding language” by 80% of developers, Python is considered the future of programming. It is an object-oriented language created by Guido van Rossum 30 years ago. Python has large-scale libraries that ease artificial intelligence, data science and machine learning. Python has been the backbone of some crucial application developments like- Instagram, Pinterest, Disqus, Uber, YouTube, Spotify and many more. It has also ranked number one in TIOBE and PYPL Indexes. Hence, it is most desirable to learn Python for better job opportunities.

2. Java

With more than 3 billion active devices, it has been used on desktop applications, mobile applications, web development, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and many others; Java is considered to be one of the most popular programming languages today. This stable language has been used by established companies like- NASA, Netflix, Spotify, LinkedIn, Uber, Amazon and many others

3. C/C++

Being the oldest of all, C has helped other languages like- Javascript and C# come into existence. C++ is the extended version of the C programming language and works effectively on gaming platforms, graphics and enterprise applications. TIOBE ranks C as the second most popular programming language after Python offering inbuilt functions and operators with enhanced speed and efficiency. Companies like GitHub, Telegram messenger, and Mastercard use C in their software development.

4. Go 

The next in the queue is the “Go” programming language developed by Google in 2007, used to create web pages and APIs. It is considered one of the best-paid technologies and the second most demanded backend programming language in today’s time. It is much like Python and is used to create Artificial Intelligence-based systems. This simple and easy-to-learn language supports automation processes. Players like- Google, BBC, Medium, and Uber are working on Go for their software requirements.

5. R

R is an arithmetical and graphical programming language widely used by statisticians and data diggers for analysing data. It is an object-oriented programming language supporting cross-platform operations and vast libraries for interactive graphics.

Organisations like Flipkart, Amazon, Google, and LinkedIn use R to meet their software requirements. Software development is the most popular career today. Digitalisation in every sector has uplifted the demand for software engineers with versatile knowledge of different programming languages.

From an ECA intern to an award-winning Project Manager

From an ECA intern to an award-winning Project Manager


In this article, we share with you the story of an ECA professional year student who went from being a fresh graduate to becoming part of an award-winning App development team.

Starting the journey with ECA and Elegant Media

After finishing her masters of business (IT) at RMIT in 2019, Tina Chim was looking for a way to break into the industry. This was when she came across ECA’s professional year program, and she instantly felt the professional year program being offered by ECA was a perfect fit for her.

Tina began her professional year at the start of 2020, and after finishing her initial certifications and programs, it was time for her to start the process of getting an internship. “The ECA professional year takes you through a step-by-step process for getting the internship that will work best for you, which was great,” says Tina.

Even though she was applying for an internship during one of the worst economic periods of the century, she was offered an internship with Elegant Media, one of the leading App development companies in Australia.

From internship to employee

internship in Australia for international students Tina’s time as an intern at Elegant Media was marked with a steep learning curve. “There were multiple areas of the business that I got to work in. I was working with real projects, which pushed me to learn a lot in a short period of time. It was an excellent opportunity to understand and grow in the industry.”

Tina excelled during the internship, was a good fit with the company environment and a few months after finishing the internship, she was offered a full-time position at Elegant Media.

She feels she was offered a job at the company because of her work ethic and because of how well she jelled within the company.

“Being offered an internship and then a job in a year like 2020 was a blessing, I was very happy when I got hired.”

The best part of ECA professional year and becoming a project manager

“Based on my personal experience, the tutor I had at ECA was very passionate about what he was teaching. The tutor ended up making the course extremely interesting and I think that really helped in pushing me to learn more during my professional year.”

The professional year program presented Tina with the opportunity of an internship and she feels it was invaluable in her journey to becoming a Project Manager in an award-winning app development team at Elegant Media.

“The best part about working as a project manager with an App developer is the fact that I am constantly learning. No two days are the same; I get to work on different projects with different clients, and I enjoy this process of learning and adapting to different project needs.”

Future plans and advice to new interns

“I have had the opportunity to work with the new interns that came to work with us this year and it was a very humbling experience. I still have a lot to learn, but while talking to them I also realised how much I have learnt in the last year.”

I plan on growing as a project manager and becoming better at coordinating and handling a team. At Elegant Media, we are always pushing the boundaries of innovation and efficiency and I plan to play a key role in our companies success over the coming years.

I would advise all students thinking of doing a professional year program to not underestimate the connections they can make and the things they can learn during this year. You never know where the professional year can take you.
