Programming Languages for Speedier Development

When Speed is Key

Today, we have countless programming languages at our disposal. Whether you’re building a web or mobile app, a website, a database, a game, or something else entirely, the choices are endless, no matter if you’re just starting out in the world of programming or are a seasoned developer.

But with so many languages to choose from, how do you know which one is the best option for your particular project? Of course, different programming languages offer different benefits. Perhaps you’re looking for the one with the highest performance or the one that’s great for design. 

You might be in search of the language that’s best suited to large projects. Or maybe, you want the language that will speed up development time, allowing you to complete your project much more quickly than the usual turnaround.

At BairesDev, we hire only the Top 1% of software development talent, and our engineers are highly skilled in languages across the gamut, from Java and Kotlin to C and C++ to Ruby. If you’re looking to speed up the time it takes to build your project, here are the languages we are constantly using — and the ones that you should be using, too.

Achieve digital acceleration

Python

This much-loved language, used by the likes of Facebook, Google, YouTube, NASA, and many other giants across various industries, has a number of qualities that make it so popular. One characteristic of Python that contributes to its widespread use is the fact that its syntax is highly readable and easy to write. This is because it’s an interpreted language and is written in English. You’ll also be able to better spot bugs this way. 

Ultimately, because the language is so easy to use, it facilitates quicker development. Plus, Python comes with a large community to give you greater support and allows you to scale projects in reduced time.

Swift

Despite being a relative newcomer to the programming scene — it was only released in 2014 — Swift has quickly garnered a large following. This is partly because it’s the magic behind Apple products, including iOS apps. 

Another reason for Swift’s success is the fact that its learning curve is not steep at all. Many developers find the language easy to learn and work with. Development is seamless and pain-free.

Ruby

Often compared to Python, Ruby offers a similar English-like syntax, making it highly readable and writable. Moreover, it has a very active community, and you can tap into it for help and support, making development a breeze. Engineers rarely have a difficult time learning Ruby — sometimes, it’s the first language they learn. Successful companies like Airbnb, Hulu, Shopify, and Twitter all embrace Ruby, too.

Ruby is perhaps best known for its framework, Ruby on Rails, otherwise known as simply Rails. Rails is widely used, particularly to create web applications, as it simplifies development tenfold.

Kotlin

The youngest language on this list — released only in 2016 — Kotlin has already earned its place as one of the top programming languages in existence. This general-purpose language is now one of two official languages of Android, along with Java. It offers completely functional and object-oriented programming capabilities and is interoperable with Java.

In fact, some Java apps have even been rewritten in Kotlin, a more concise and, according to some, a less error-prone alternative to the well-established and still popular programming language. 

All of these important features have made Kotlin an ultra-fast and easy-to-use development tool. Because of this, along with Google, companies like Amazon, Pinterest, Uber, Coursera, and Slack love the language.

Java

Despite Kotlin being such a success, Java remains one of the most popular languages in the world, according to Stack Overflow’s 2020 Developer Survey, beating out its younger and newer counterpart. 

Released in 1996, the language is well-established and is a go-to tool for developing a variety of products, from Android apps and applets to websites, and is trusted by companies like Microsoft, Google, Intel, Capital One, and Netflix as part of their development stacks.

Longevity, including frequent updates, is not the only advantage Java offers. It also comes with an enormous community — thanks in part due to its history as a trusted language — that has contributed to improving Java and providing resources and libraries for speedier development. The language also runs on multiple platforms, allowing developers to pick up and continue their projects in many different environments. 


Java is also easy to learn, with English-like syntax and few complex characters. Plus, developers are more able to spot bugs in their code thanks to this readable quality.

We are speed! But also, Quality.

A quick project turnaround is a must in the age of digital acceleration, where innovation is king. Businesses must find ways to increase the speed of their software and web development without sacrificing quality in the process. Choosing a language that facilitates fast, seamless development like Python, Swift, Ruby, Kotlin, or Java is one way to do this and stay ahead of the curve.

At BairesDev, we have a proven track record of building our clients’ projects that meet and exceed their requirements while maintaining the high level of quality you’ve come to expect from a reputable outsourcing firm.
