The secret to a good programming language is that it must enable faster, smarter programming with fewer bugs. Though the languages released earlier had assured that, almost all of them failed to meet the promise. Though the programming languages these days promise the same, we can’t abandon them assuming that they will be just like the earlier versions. It is necessary to adopt new programming languages as the projects are getting bigger day by day.
There are new programming languages coming up, with increased automation. This can help to improve efficiency with fewer chances of errors, thus, keeping in terms with the promise of faster, smarter programming with fewer bugs.
Here’s a list of 10 upcoming web programming languages that may define the future of coding:
