C programming language showing signs of weakening in 2016

C runs well, and it serves its purpose. In fact, C is so common today that most programs have C compilers to run C-coded files, and many educational computing courses start with C as the first language because so many languages that have been created since Cs rise use elements of C in their structure. If two developers want to discuss code, they can usually find a middle ground that they both understand when discussing their code in the context of C.

Programming Trends

Programmers love to sneer at the world of fashion where trends blow through like breezers. Actually that’s not to say programming is a profession devoid of trends.The difference is that programming trends are driven by greater efficiency, increased customisation, and ease of use. FULL LANGUAGE STACKS: The people who created a new programming language had to build everything that turned code into the bits fed to the silicon.Now a days people with a clever idea simply write a preprocessor that translates the new code into something old with a rich set of libraries and APIs.We generally seem to be dozens of languages like Scala or Clojure that run on the JVM, but there’s only one JVM. HYPERVISORS: The hypervisors have their place and many Docker containers run inside of operating systems which are running on top of hypervisors.However,Docker containers are too much smaller than virtual machine images, and that makes them much easier to use and deploy. JAVASCRIPT FILES: Everyone learned to write JavaScript to pop up an alert box or check to see that the email address in the form contained an @ sign.And now HTML AJAX apps are so sophisticated that few people start from scratch.It is very simpler to adopt an elaborate framework and write a bit of glue code to implement our business logic. STATIC TAGS: Once upon a time, video was something we watched on YouTube or Vimeo. It was a separate thing that lived on its own in a dedicated page. That’s changing as more and more websites use video as building blocks like static GIFs or JPGs. Now a days Designers are discovering that the modern video tag is simply another rectangle, albeit a rectangle that often needs a bit more JavaScript code from the programmer to control it. VIRTUAL THINGS: The robot vacuum cleaners are old news and the drones are taking off.That means programmers need to start thinking about how to write code to control the new machines.Many roboticist, for instance, like hacking the code in OpenCv, a machine vision platform filled with C,this simply means new rules, new libraries, new protocols, and plenty of other new topics to think about
