System languages meaing: C++, C#, Python, Java, etc.
I started wondering this when reading a post discussing the best programming language in 2019. So basically: Besides for server related tasks, is there any point to learning these because it seems like most applications for the average person are beginning to be available on the browser and web. Repl.it of course and then you have the whole Google ecosystem of office tools and things like that. It also seems like the average computer user is losing the knowledge and in some cases the ability, ie. chromebooks, to download system programs. Sorry for the ramble but should I just drop Python, (mid-high tier knowledge), and learn markup languages and more capable server languages like Node or is there still hope for these languages.
Note: I'm mostly talking about applications for the average internet user, not developers necessarily.
C++, C#, Python, Java are still very much used and relevant languages. Guess what language browsers, Xbox games, node and operating systems are written in? The answer is C++. Python is used a lot in statistical analysis and AI research. C# is the go to language for a lot of Windows applications. Java is used an awful lot in business systems.
So, it is well worth the effort to learn these languages. Python is a favourite of mine, but C++ or Java will help round out your skills.
