Check it out the most promising programming careers

Developer careers are not a new trend in IT, in the recent years, the demand for programmers in the IT industry has gone up and up. According to Glassdoor Ireland, the average web developer can earn is between €25,000-€53,000. One of the reasons of this boom is the mobile phone sector and the requirement for more apps and the fact that developers can easily transit into web and mobile development.  

Even though there are dozens of coding languages in use these days, some of them are more in-demand than others. According to a TIOBE Programming Community Index published in the Irish Tech News, Java, C, C++, C#, Python, and Visual Basic.NET are on the top of the list, as shown in the graph below. 

Programming careers

If you already work as a developer, your skills will be in demand. If you are also able to work in more than one programming language you will be taking a massive step towards future proofing your career. If you wish to start a developer career, it is good to know which is the best path to follow. In both cases, it is important to keep an eye on what languages are in demand, and which ones are rising in popularity.

At New Horizons Ireland, we provide a wide range of programming courses with the advantage that you can choose the best learning method for you. Take a sneak peek at our list below and choose the best option for you.


Java is a general-purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible.

C# is an elegant and type-safe object-oriented language that enables developers to build a variety of secure and robust applications that run on the .NET Framework. It is possible to use C# to create Windows client applications, XML Web services, distributed components, client-server applications, database applications, and much, much more.

Visual Studio

Visual Studio is a complete set of development tools for building ASP.NET Web applications, XML Web Services, desktop applications, and mobile applications. Visual Basic, Visual C#, and Visual C++ all use the same integrated development environment (IDE), which enables tool sharing and eases the creation of mixed-language solutions. In addition, these languages use the functionality of the .NET Framework, which provides access to key technologies that simplify the development of ASP Web applications and XML Web Services.

Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Its high-level built in data structures, combined with dynamic typing and dynamic binding, make it very attractive for Rapid Application Development, as well as for use as a scripting or glue language to connect existing components together. Python's simple, easy to learn syntax emphasizes readability and therefore reduces the cost of program maintenance. Click here to see more of our Python courses.
