One of the most asked and confusing question that comes in the mind of a beginner coder is “Which is best language to get into FANG? “Can Python land me into GOOGLE”? BLA, BLA, BLA!!!!!!!
Before getting to the answer of this question , one advice I want to give you all is “Don’t focus on language focus on fundamentals”. Today most software exists, to solve a problem but also to interfere with another software. Nowadays inter dependency is taking a growth.
Consider an example Microsoft uses 4 official Programming language.
So, connecting each and every module is important. Here the aspect is important that we should know about these 4-programming languages to solve this inter dependency.
Each programming language is similar to each other, so one should focus on any one language at the start and then learning any new language will take less than a week, it will be a piece of cake 😉
Top 3 Languages For Placement
Now, coming towards the Top 3 Programming Language For Placements, to crack FANGM Companies are:-
- Python (last option only)
One as beginner should start with any of the two languages i.e. JAVA/C++, and yes you should avoid python for Placement preparation. You should definitely learn it later for machine learning, data science and other project purposes but my advice is that one should avoid python to prepare for placement.
To defend my point I want to make it clear that many companies don’t allow you to code in python in the online coding test. YES, YOU READ RIGHT THEY DON’T ALLOW PYTHON in many companies.
So, the better option is always C++/JAVA. You can choose any of the two according to your preferences to prepare for placements.
Java VS C++
Now, THE BIG QUESTION ARISES? What to choice between JAVA and C++? Well, That’s not a big deal any one would work fine but I will help you in finding out which one will be best for you.
THE KEY TO GETTING INTO THESE TOP COMPANIES ARE NOT LANGUAGES BUT DATA STRUCTURES AND ALGORITHMS which is core computer concepts implemented with the help of any programming language.
Java is an object oriented language and has been the most popular language for many years.
Starting with java will help you prepare for your placement and interviews as well as in Android Development.
C++ is a general purpose programming language and widely used now a days for competitive programming. It has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features.
If you are looking forward into game development then C++ will be a great choice and definitely good for placement preparations.
Now, you must be thinking what’s competitive programming!!! To learn more about Competitive Programming check this article.
In a Nutshell competitive programming is sport of programming which helps you build up your skills in DATA STRUCTURES And ALGORITHMS which furthers help you getting into FANG too.
C++ is the most common and widely used language for Competitive programming, but JAVA people don’t be sad, java is the second most used language in Competitive Programming.
C++ and Java are the two best programming languages to get into Product based companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Adobe etc.
At, last just pick up from any 2 of the languages prepare for DSA(Data Structure Algorithm) and crack any product Based companies.
