Visual Studio

Programming is a difficult job, and there are so many different languages used it can be more difficult if you have to learn a new language before you can complete the assigned project tasks. New languages come and go on a fairly regular basis, but if you have used a language for a few years it can be difficult to let one of your favorite languages go to the complier in the sky. In this recent article by Jeff Cogswell, we learn that some languages appear to be on the chopping block:

As developers embrace new programming languages, older languages can go one of two ways: stay in use, despite fading popularity, or die out completely. We predict the following languages will likely die:

  • Perl
  • Ruby
  • Visual Basic.Net
  • Adobe Flash and AIR
  • Delphi’s Object Pascal
