Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) is a computer language that is used to create web pages. It is the language that can be interpreted by a browser. Web pages are also called HTML documents. HTML is a set of special codes that can be embedded in text to add formatting and linking information to the web page.
Active Server Pages (ASP) is another server side scripting language that is used to create and run web applications. It works with HTML pages and script commands to create web pages or web applications. The language that used for writing ASP is VBScript. At certain times you can also use Jscript.
Java is an object-oriented and free-form programming that is designed specifically for the development of software for various applications. It is simple, portable, reliable, and an interactive language. Java is a platform-neutral language and it is not tied to any particular hardware or operating system. Since this unique programming language is used for the Internet, it is sometimes called Internet Language.
Practical Extraction and Report Language (PERL) is a cross platform programming language that is used for web applications and e-commerce programs. It works with all HTML, XML, and any other mark-up language. It is used for network programming, database administration, and graphics applications.
Created by Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto, Ruby is an open source, object-oriented programming language that it is easy to read and use. Programs in Ruby are not compiled like other programming languages. There are many different types of Ruby programming languages like Iron Ruby, J Ruby, Ruby, and YARV.
.NET applications were deployed to run on the Common Language Runtime (CLR), which is a virtual machine that can run on any platform. A multi-platform, open-source implementation of .NET Framework allows developers to build and run applications on a variety of platforms. With .NET, compilers generate a language called Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL), which is analogous to Java byte code.
C# is an object-oriented programming language that enables programmers to build applications for the .NET platform. It is good for architecting components from high level applications to system level applications. These components can be converted in to web services that allow invoking across the Internet, from any language that is running on the operating system.
An object-oriented programming language, C++ has features that allow programmers to build complex applications with clarity, extensibility, and ease of maintenance. It is suitable for any programming task that includes development of editors, compilers, databases, communication systems, and application systems.
Visual basic was one of first languages with a graphical programming environment. A visual basic programmer can add more amount of code by using controls that define appearances and behavior. It is an event-driven language, which means that each object behaves differently in response to different events.
XML (Extensible Markup Language) was designed to transport and store data. You can design your own tags according to the nature of the application. It is the most common tool that is used for data transmission between multiple applications and is becoming more popular in the area of storing and describing information.
