Programming Languages

What are the hot programmings languages developers need to know? The real question should be what will be the hot programming languages in the future. Web programming has involved Ruby, Python, and PHP. However they are being eclipsed by JavaScript.

The enterprise uses Java. You don't see your main apps being rewritten with Ruby. Ruby is used for some smaller non-critical apps. Yet Ruby developers are currently commanding the big bucks.

So Ruby has some gas. But in the end it will probably be JavaScript that rules. Python, Perl, and PHP will most likely fade. You got to invest in the right language to pay off in the future.
