Where to Learn it

  • Guy

    Maybe the author should find out what a programming language is before trying to make a list about programming languages. This list includes several that aren’t.

    • Which is the programming language that you mention, on this list?

      • HTML5, CSS3 and SQL

        HTML is a markup language, CSS is to style HTML pages and SQL is for Database

        • Hi Munawar,

          I cannot agree with your comment, because I have three examples.

          Here’s the definition on Wikipedia:
          A programming language is a formal language designed to communicate instructions to a machine, particularly a computer. Programming languages can be used to create programs that control the behavior of a machine and/or to express algorithms precisely.

          SQL stands for Structured Query Language. It is a special-purpose programming language. Now, it’s not a language in the same sense as, say, Java or C++: SQL is considered a fourth-generation language (4GL), whereas Java and C++ are third-generation languages (3GLs). Third generation languages are closer to human language than high-level languages like java. These 4GLs are often used to access databases, such as SQL.

          In C the order of instructions is crucial, but in CSS you can have rules and selectors in any order, and in HTML the order of the tags matter, so there must be some subclassifaction of languages, where CSS/HTML/similar are in one and C/Python/etc are in the other?

          • Your justification is true,.. but you cannot categorize HTML, CSS and SQL under programming languages. Anyway Thanks 🙂

          • Thank you for sharing valuable feedback about this article seated on my website.
