Best programming books for each programming language

We have already released several articles on best books on..., this time it's time to talk about best programming books. But of course, you will think that there are many very different programming languages, and that this is complicated.

Therefore, we have analyzed what are the 10 most used programming languages currently and we offer you a recommended book for each of them. So you can learn in the best way any of these languages ​​that are among the most demanded by technology companies.

What are the most used programming languages ​​in 2023?

Between the programming languages ​​most in demand today, and therefore the ones you should learn if you want to get more job opportunities, are:

  1. javascript
  2. Python
  3. Go
  4. Java
  5. Kotlin
  6. PHP
  7. C#

Furthermore, if we analyze the trends in 2023 by job demand, we also see the following:

  1. Python
  2. SQL
  3. Java
  4. JavaScript
  5. C
  6. C++

  10. MATLAB

Taking these two statistics into account, we are going to see the list of books that may be most useful for you to learn a profession with a future or for a simple passion for technology...

It has not been taken into account whether they are better or worse programming languages, if they like them more or less. We have simply stuck to these statistical lists.

best programming books

As for best titles that we recommend (written in Spanish) buy to learn the language that you like the most, are:


JavaScript, or JS, It is an interpreted, object-oriented, prototype-based, imperative, weakly-typed, and dynamic programming language. This language was originally developed by Brendan Eich of Netscape, under the name Mocha, later renamed LiveScript and finally JavaScript. It can be a good choice if you want to dedicate yourself to programming client-side utilities, dynamic web pages, as well as server-side, since its applications are very extensive.


Python is a high-level interpreted language. Its code is easy to read and it is used to develop a multitude of applications, as well as being partially object-oriented, imperative, cross-platform, multi-paradigm, dynamic, and, to a lesser extent, for functional programming. It was developed in the late 80s by Guido van Rossum from the Netherlands, as a successor to ABC and named after the British comedy group Monty Python. Given the versatility it has, learning Python is almost certain to find a job or application to dedicate yourself to, since it is used to program simple tools or utilities, even for applications for Big Data, artificial intelligence, etc.


Go It is a concurrent and compiled programming language, with static typing and inspired by the C syntax. Garbage collection and memory safety have been improved. It was developed by Google, by members like Ken Thonpson (one of the Unix developers), Rob Pike, and Robert Griesemer. Currently available for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and macOS, as well as x86 and ARM architectures. It is an imperative, structured, and object-oriented language. As for applications, it can be used both on the server side for the web, for containers, database management, utilities or system tools, etc.


Java It is another cross-platform programming language to take into account. It was developed by Sun Microsystems in 1995, which in 2010 would be absorbed by Oracle. Its developer was James Gosling, and its syntax was inspired by C and C++. Also, it is not a common language, since it is compiled to bytecode and the JVM or Java Virtual Machine is used so that apps can run regardless of the underlying architecture. As for applications, it can be used for a multitude of programs of all kinds, but it may especially interest you if you want to program apps for Android.


C It is one of the most powerful programming languages, general purpose, and can be used for both high-level and low-level programming, which is why it is sometimes called a medium-level language. In addition, it can be combined with assembly code through some extensions, which makes it easier to work with the hardware more intimately. That is why it is widely used for operating system kernels, drivers or controllers, etc. It was created by Dennis Ritchie (another of the Unix creators) between 1969 and 1972, at Bell Labs.


C++ It derives from the previous one, and was designed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979. The idea was to extend the C programming language to add mechanisms that allow object manipulation, so C++ is a kind of object-oriented C. It is used for generic programming, and can be used for databases, operating systems, web, graphic applications, for the cloud, video games, etc.

Sales C/C++. Course...


C# (C sharp) It is another multi-paradigm programming language that is related to the previous ones in terms of basic syntax, although it uses a .NET platform object model similar to Java. It was developed by the Microsoft company. And it can be a good learning idea to program applications for this operating system, among others.

MATLAB is the abbreviation for MATrix LABoratory, or matrix laboratory. This system is used for numerical computation, using its own programming language known as M and its own IDE. It is available for Windows, Linux, macOS, and other Unixes. If you want to go into signal or image processing, computer vision, computational finance, robotics, machine learning, etc., it may be a good option.


El ASM or assembly language, is a very low-level programming language, used directly to program microprocessors. It employs a symbolic representation or mnemonics of the ISA or CPU instructions, which symbolize the binary machine codes needed to program the processor architecture. To use it, you have to know the ISA very well. This powerful language is usually used for the kernel of the operating system, for controllers or drivers, firmware, boot managers, real time, etc. Especially, x86 and ARM, which are the two most widespread architectures today...


Ruby is another interpreted, reflective, and object-oriented programming language. It was created by Japanese Yukihiro Matz Matsumoto in 1993 and released to the public in 1995. It combines Perl and Python syntax, with Smalltalk features, as well as functionality similar to Lips, Lua, Dylan, and CLU. In addition, it is in high demand today, since there are not as many programmers who control Ruby as for other languages, especially interesting ROR (Ruby On Rails). Its applications range from web application development to data analysis.


Remember, the best way to learn a programming language is by practicing, starting by looking at source code from sites like GitHub, snippets that you can find on the Internet, etc., and modifying them, and then moving on to creating your own programs from scratch... PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. That is the way, the book is only an aid for the first steps.
