Strategix Applications Solutions: The ABC of Programming Languages Part 1
The programming language you choose for mobile development can be the difference between great success and tremendous frustration. Luckily there are many options from which you can chose, so your eventual choice of programming language will be determined by not only your choice of hardware platform, as used to be the case: more modern platforms based on open-source standards offer much more flexibility.
The programming language you end up choosing should aid interconnectivity, security and interoperability, as well as easy embedding and the programming language longevity.
Let’s look at the biggest contenders on the playing field.
C is as close to the lingua franca of the world of software development and is available on nearly every advanced embedded platform that exists. The most widely used programming languages use C syntax.
Developed in the early 1980’s to accommodate the move towards more object-oriented programming languages, C++ kept the spare nature of C but added data abstraction, classes and objects. This makes it a fan for Linux followers. Recent statistics places it as the top IoT operating system.
Unlike C and C++, there are hardly any hardware-based dependencies to go with Java. It was written to be an object-oriented programming language that is incredibly portable: There are very few hardware dependencies built into the compiler. Java compiler supports multiple hardware platforms and the ability to compile programs that run on multiple platforms.
Go was developed at Google and is available on a wide variety of processors and platforms. The important feature of this programming language is that it allows devices to work together to send and receive data simultaneously in many channels.
Well, there’s the first part of your basic programming languages, in a nutshell. In the next blog, we’ll look at Python, Rust, Parasail, B# and Assembler.
