In terms of the year 2015 with all the technology that hit the mainstream in the preceding years, there are a couple of programming languages that we think the most veteran programmers should have a look at.
Java And Swift for App Developer
Java has become the end-all programming language for most mobile applications on marketplace. Android’s apps are almost exclusively programmed with Java. Java offers less control over low-level (direct-to-hardware) communication but many desktop and mobile applications are written in Java.
Swift is a language created by Apple based on different concepts including Objective-C Ruby, and Python. If you want to develop app in iOS or Mac OS X besides develop native app which uses Xcode Objective-C, you have to learn Swift.
You will need to learn both Java and Swift programming language if you plan to venture deep into mobile app marketplace.

C++ for sleek magician
Almost everything you develop in C/C++ is going to run faster than whatever you may code in a higher-level language such as Java, Python, C#, etc. You don’t have to write entire applications with it. You can write modules that you can share among multiple applications, recycling your highly-efficient code everywhere.
You can tap directly into the Windows API, you can program with objects and classes or abandon them altogether and make C-style structured program. Listing is versatile by allocate “Next” and “Previous” pointers to data in a chain, and you can work with input/output completion ports more easily than C++.
