Languges & Frameworks

0 people found this helpful

Every piece of technology in the world is built using a variety of tools known as languages and frameworks.

In short, a programming language is a syntax, grammar, semantics, and core-coding library that implements can support. Some commonly known and widely used languages include (and are certainly not limited to): Python, Ruby, Java, C, C++, and many, many more.

Different programming languages have different advantages and specialty uses. Some programming languages are incredibly simple to use, but notably slower than other languages. Others can be incredibly efficient but take weeks or months to learn.  Overall, the language that something is programmed in is very open to the needs and desires of the developer.

Frameworks on the other hand are like toolkits built from one of the languages that aid in the programming process saving developers a ton of time. For example, the programming language JavaScript (commonly used on the web) has a host of frameworks like Angular JS or Open UI5 that aid developers in building great products. This Wikipedia article actually provides an extensive list of frameworks by language.

When choosing what language to program your new app in, choose something that makes sense for the type of product you’re going for. If you can utilize languages with extensive frameworks, you can save a ton of time when trying to work on more complicated projects.
