Strategix Applications Solutions: The ABC of Programming Languages Part 2

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.

In the previous blog we looked at C, C++, Java, JavaScript and Go. Let’s look at the rest of the contenders on the playing field.


Python places an emphasis on readability. In programmers’ opinion, it is the easy programming language to understand and use. Organised and neat, Python’s clean syntax is great for database arrangement. It is very flexible, e.g. it can either be submitted to a run-time compiler or run through one of several pre-compilers so that compact executable code may be distributed.


Rust developed by Mozilla is an open source programming language. Rust is an open-source project that is evolving quickly. Rust shares many of Go’s qualities, though it does solve one major problem of Go. However, to use Rust, the processor needs to support concurrent processing. Go doesn’t automatically share information between the different “channel” data structures, which often leads to a runaway situation in which a system can spiral out of control because different processes are working at odds with one another. Rust includes functions that eliminate race conditions, making it a less-risky language than Go for highly concurrent programs.

However, to use Rust, the processor needs to support concurrent processing.


Parasail is an evolved programming language, compiled and object-oriented, it can be programmed with C, Java or Python syntax. If IoT applications require parallel processing, Parasail is the most suitable one.


B# language is developed for small applications. As opposed to most of the programming languages mentioned here, B# was designed from the ground-up as a very small, very efficient embedded control language. B# keeps it minimal, but retaining only embedded project-required features. Instead, it adds support to critical real-time control functions.


Assembler is perfect for going old-school or you need to keep your project as compact as possible. It is the great choice if you want to keep the compact applications. The bad news is that you have practically no useful tools to keep you from making silly mistakes.
