Programming language: Will python disappear by 2030 ?



To start:


This text is a translation based on overseas content created by Wishket and translator Jeonrio. Translated the article of 'Better Programming' dealing with various information for programmers . The author of this article, Nishi, has written serials in a variety of fields, including technology, psychology, startups, and entrepreneurship. This article is about programming languages ​​that may

 disappear by 2030. We can think about the future of programming languages



No one knows exactly which one will hit the strike zone. This is especially true for programming languages. No programming language can always stay in power. Each holds power for a while and then disappears. These languages ​​are not completely dead, but they are only becoming obsolete by market conditions.


It's impossible to predict exactly which programming languages ​​will disappear in the next decade, but it's still worth looking at which languages ​​are currently on the decline. Below is a list of programming languages ​​that we think are likely to become obsolete in the next decade.


Programming language: In the case of Objective C, the game is over.

Apple's 36-year-old the programming language Objective C is a general-purpose, object-oriented programming language that serves as Apple's primary programming language. Objective C's popularity has been steadily declining over the past few years. In addition, TIOBE's ranking index also plummeted by eight places, and finally, in April, it was pushed out of the top 20.


Many developers these days prefer Swift instead, and companies prefer to hire Swift developers over Objective C. Objective C still has some influence on the market, and it won't be considered an outdated language right away. 

But if you want to work in Mac OS or iOS, I would say that learning Swift rather than Objective C is a good choice.



Programming language: CoffeeScript has no table to put it on


the programming language CoffeeScript is a language that can compile programs written in other languages ​​into JavaScript, and you can also improve the readability and conciseness of JavaScript by adding sugar to the existing syntactic. CoffeeScript was once very popular for a very brief time, but it also quickly lost its charm.


According to a Google Trends report, the language has seen a sharp decline in its popularity over the past 4-5 years. And if you look at the 2021 Tiobe ranking, you can't even find that name in the top 100. Since the language debuted in 2009, it's not old enough to make its name on the list of programming languages ​​that are going to disappear from here and now. It is true, however, that the demand has declined significantly because of the content being subject to change and the cumbersome compilation process.



Programming language: Perl is fading

the programming language Pearl was first introduced in 1987. Since then, it has been a significant influence in the tech industry. However, with Python and other efficient programming languages ​​appearing one after another, it doesn't seem easy for Perl to regain its popularity in the programming world.


Of course, it's clear that there are still people who support Perl. And whenever there's an article that Perl is dying, fans of the language are pointing out that there are still jobs open for Perl developers, and it's still functioning efficiently in a lot of jobs. But there's no denying that Perl can't beat Python, which currently sits in second place on the Tiobe rankings. For reference, Pearl has mostly been stuck at #19 on Tiobe for the past two years. And you could say that over the next 10 years, the number of people using Perl will continue to decline, and risk completely disappearing.


Programming language: VB.NET is virtually dead

Microsoft's Visual Basic .NET was first introduced in 2002. the programming

language VB.NET was created as a successor to a programming language called Visual Basic. VB.NET, of course, has been quite popular for a long time, and was a favorite even within the .NET family, but with the advent of C#, it eventually lost its charm. Even in Google Trends, VB.NET is gradually losing its appeal. According to Tiobe's report, VB.NET lags behind C# in both demand and popularity. Because VB.NET also has limitations in implementing core functions, many developers and programmers currently prefer C# over VB.NET.







Programming language: Haskell is about to say goodbye


Of course, the programming language Haskell also has its own fan club, and although it is a language preferred by various large corporations such as Facebook, GitHub, and IBM, Tiobe does not perform well in the long-term rankings. It seems that the developers say little about this language. Haskell is a general-purpose, statically typed[2], purely functional programming language[3]. In the Tiobe ranking, Haskell was ranked 39th in March 2020, but dropped to 47th this year.


Over the past decade, the language has steadily declined in demand and use cases, including because it is difficult to learn and statically typed. And as technology is advancing rapidly, other languages ​​like Python are getting more and more attention from developers. What programming language will dominate the world 10 years from now?
