In this blog, we will determine the new champions and the retaining champions. Which programming languages are for websites? Which programming languages are for mobile?


JavaScript is an object-oriented programming language used to build interactive and dynamic web pages or apps.

Our software engineer, Eric, explains it as “JavaScript provides the functionality of an application. What happens when you click a button on a website? Well, that is all controlled by JavaScript. Think of it as the brain behind what happens once an application hits the client.”

Examples of JavaScript websites and projects are among the most well-known platforms and websites in the world. Google, the favorite search engine, utilized JavaScript for both the front end and backend development. YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, Twitter, and Amazon are just a few of the massively successful websites written with JavaScript.

JavaScript is one of the most versatile and popular programming languages available. Utilize JavaScript for web application development, software development, mobile app development, both front and back end. By using frameworks; (like React Native, Flutter, or Angular) JavaScript, can develop for both Android apps and iOS mobile apps. Write the code once, and you can push to both iOS and Android. One of the best programming languages to learn is JavaScript.

Pros and Cons of JavaScript:

  • Speed
  • Simplicity
  • Popularity
  • Server Load
  • Rich Interfaces
  • Versatility
  • Cons
  • Client-side Security
  • Browser Support
  • What does this mean for your startup? JavaScript was once limited to the browser, but with technological advancements, JS dominates front-end development. Utilizing JS for your startup’s project can ensure modern UI, high security, versatility, and flexibility. JavaScript is not limited to just mobile and desktop applications. JS is constantly evolving and improving.

Utilizing JS for your startup’s project can ensure modern UI, high security, versatility, and flexibility. JavaScript is not limited to just mobile and desktop applications. JS is constantly evolving and improving.


    PHP, a general-purpose scripting language, is best suited for website development. (Particularly for server-side functions, such as sending and receiving data, controlling user access, and encrypting data.) Alex, one of our software engineers, describes PHP as “the brains of a website. It takes a simple HTML website and gives it the power to think and communicate with APIs.”

    We used PHP for our EarthX client; you can read more about our client on our portfolio page.

    The most well-known examples of PHP projects are MailChimp for their API, Etsy, WordPress, and Slack. PHP is a dynamic language, allowing teams to save time and improve long-term ROI. PHP is a cross-platform development language, running on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows OS.

    Pros and Cons of PHP:

  • Easy Database Connection
  • Easy to Use
  • Cross-Platform
  • Speed
  • Open Source
  • Cons
  • Security
  • Weak Type
  • What does this mean for your startup?

    While JavaScript is ideal for the front-end development of your website or app; (with heavy data flow and server-to-client-side communication) PHP, development might be a better option than opting for JS for your backend as well. MailChimp, a data-heavy website, and CRM utilizes PHP. If your startup or small business wants to use a CMS, like WordPress, someone who understands the backend of WP and can enhance your data security, a PHP developer.


    C# is an object-oriented programming language. C# compiles into bytecode, executing on a virtual computer to translate it into machine code. C#’s relatives, C and C++, are not commonly used today, with C being virtually a dead language. To overcome the shortcomings of C, Microsoft developed the C#. The best uses for C# are website development, windows applications, and game development. C#, primarily used for internal or enterprise apps rather than commercial software; due to the versatility and dependability. Applications such as Windows Installer XML, Microsoft Visual Studios, Paint, and KeePass use C#.

    Pros and Cons of C#:

  • Server Running Code Must be Windows
  • The Language is Case-Sensitive
  • What does this mean for your startup?

    It is easy to scale and maintain projects written in C#. Programs developed in C# are reliably consistent, making them easier to change and update. If your business is rapidly growing, C# is a sizable option for your software project.


    Swift is a general-purpose language developed by Apple. as a replacement for Objective-C. The Swift programming language allows writing and maintaining programs such as system programming, mobile, and desktop apps, to scale up cloud services, easier for developers. For app development for iOS, watchOS (apps for Apple watches) and macOS use Swift.

    Pros and Cons of Swift:

  • Rapid Development Process
  • Scalability
  • Security and Performance
  • Cons
  • Limited Talent Pool

    GO is a relatively new language developed by Google in 2007 and released in 2012. GO has the efficiency of C, the usability of Python or JS, with high-performance networking and multiprocessing. Some of the notable open-source applications with features written in Go are as follows: Dropbox migrated some of their components from Python to GO, Google utilizes GO for their server download, Netflix, SoundCloud, Twitch, and Uber.

    Pros and Cons of Go:

  • Ease of Use
  • Smart Standard Library
  • Security
  • Google’s presence
  • Cons
  • Niche-less
  • No Virtual Machine
  • What does this mean for your startup?

    Use the GO programming language for high-performance networking and high-security projects. Efficiency and usability are some of the big draws. If your project or startup is data-intensive, holding customer records, GO would be your best bet.


    Kotlin is a cross-platform statistical programming language, which generates code to run on Java Virtual Machines. Kotlin is commonly used for Android Apps, working seamlessly with Java and native code. The most notable examples of Kotlin projects are Google for backend development, Barclays Bank for web development, and DoorDash for their consumer order checkout flow. Pinterest, Uber, Trello, Duolingo, and Square.
