The best programming language to learn is the one that will give you money. Not the one that most people say is the best language to learn without telling you how it is the best language for getting a job or doing freelancing… for making the money.
If you are a beginner getting started with programming you will get a whole lot of advice telling you which programming language is the best to learn unless you never asked.
But most times we forget to ask the right question the question is why do you want to learn coding in the first place.

What are the best programming languages to learn?
I don’t know about you latest for me I write codes to make money if I don’t make money or if I can’t make money as a programmer I will probably find something else to do, after all, no one is going to pay my rent at the end of the month.
So here if you were expecting me to say that the best programming language to learn in this or that I am sorry to disappoint you but I don’t know.
But the best advice I can give is this ask yourself why you want to learn the programming language and if it is the right language for your purpose.
Another example if you prefer to do freelancing and it happens to be that Shopify or what press awesome PHP framework is what is in demand out there in the freelance world, then you definitely want to learn PHP.
And one more time, if your goal is to work in big companies where technology is like .NET, Java, Angular seems common, then consider learning those languages.
Because eventually, you will be the one to go out there to look for a job no one is going to employ you because you learnt the coolest language out there and no one will employ you because you learnt what everyone else out there things you should learn instead they will employ you because you have the right set of skills and the knowledge of the technology they use.
Another thing I want to say is this it is important to study your location and know what is in demand there. Because what is in demand in the US market might not be so much in demand in the Nigerian market.
So why it is good to take advice from more experienced developers and there I believe it is equally important to do your homework well so you can increase your chances of landing a job out there when you start hunting.
