Java, Python, and Ruby

When developing software, development teams must move swiftly for their company to remain relevant in the market. Regardless of the diverse applications available, every product shares the commonality of using specific coding languages. By outsourcing coding in these languages, your in-house teams can focus on other tasks as outsourced teams add their specialized skills to the development process by building applications with the most innovative programming languages.

In today’s digital world, Java, Python, and Ruby on Rails are three of the top programming languages for developing robust software, and each language offers its unique advantages.


#1. Java

Java is the most popular programming language, and it won’t be going away anytime soon. Java is the most popular programming language: ninety percent of Fortune 500 companies use Java as their primary language along with thousands of globally recognized brands, including LinkedIn and Uber.

Java is object-oriented, and part of its framework is designed to limit implementation dependencies. WORA (write once, run anywhere) is the most commonly-used phrase when referencing the language, and its Java Virtual Machine (JVM) allows for smooth integration across various platforms, ranging from mobile operating systems to gaming software.


#2. Python

One of the most prominent programming languages, Python is attractive both for its automatic memory management and support for multiple modes of programming. Python is currently the most common programming language taught at universities in the United States, and Python tutorials are frequently researched by Internet users according to the PYPL (Popularity of Programming Language Index).

Python’s modules and packages are at the core of its reusable code, making it ideal for rapid application development as companies work towards getting their product to market. Segmentation fault is also far less likely when working with Python. Because the testing cycle runs much faster in the framework, productivity increases for teams using Python during development phases.

With the rise of deep learning, Python is also being used to power artificial intelligence. Because Python is open source with prebuilt libraries, coding support is available throughout development to simplify the process and save time while developing complex AI logic.

Meanwhile most popular media platforms, include Google, Youtube, Instagram, Dropbox, and Spotify were built at least in part using Python.


#3. Ruby on Rails

Ruby on Rails (RoR) is most commonly called Rails in the programming world, and the demand for Rails is rapidly increasing. Since the software was introduced in 2004, more than 4,000 contributors have added to the open source software to build upon the framework continuously.

With RoR as the primary language, web-based applications operate with greater efficiency, and the programming language supports mobile development from the backend. Some of the most well-known applications built with Rails are the ones for Airbnb and Hulu. The scalability and flexible nature of Rails is also the driving force behind the Zendesk customer service portal and Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets (SASS), a full-scale CSS extension.


Why you should outsource Java, Python, and Ruby on Rails

Outsourcing development teams for programming languages has numerous benefits. IT managers can contribute to the company’s bottom line as they push functional products to market that rely on the frameworks.

To be more specific, here are more reasons to outsource coding in these programming languages.

  • Outsourced developers that specialize in each programming language are highly experienced. Their skillsets require them to embrace the latest technologies, and their knowledge will lend itself to the development of more robust, high-quality products with a competitive edge.
  • During every development cycle, your outsourced teams will have time for testing the programming language to ensure that no bugs are hidden in the code.
  • Outsourcing programming languages reduces costs when compared to the hiring process, overhead expenses, and the unexpected loss of in-house employees.
  • An Agile workflow is favored during programming language development. By utilizing Agile methodologies productivity rises, and your products will hit the market more quickly without sacrificing functionality.


Knowledge is power when outsourcing programming language development

Understanding the top programming languages helps IT managers determine which language to use when developing innovative products. After deciding the best programming language for a project, consider the benefits of its development.

Honing in on the current trends that are dominating the market and understanding the benefits of outsourcing programming language development will result in products that reach the market in less time while appealing to customers with reliability and a satisfactory user experience.
