Github is a web-based platform used for version control. Git simplifies the process of working with other people and makes it easy to collaborate on projects. Team members can work on files and easily merge their changes in with the master branch of the project. It is like a community of programmers. Coming on to the world of technology programming languages are the bricks to build this world.
Programming languages serve as the backbone of software development and the IT industry. It is very important to have a sharp knowledge of the programming languages if one wants to follow a career in a technology background. In this article, we list down the top 10 programming languages which have been used by the GitHub repository contributors

Note: The languages are listed according to their ranks

1| JavaScript

JavaScript has always been the attentive language by the developers. Not only in this year’s GitHub Octoverse report but also in the Stack Overflow Annual Developers report, where this language has secured the first position as the most commonly used programming language with 67.8%. Also, according to various reports, a JavaScript developer’s job is one of the top emerging jobs in India in the coming year.

2| Python

One of the most prominent programming languages of the decade, Python has secured the second position as the top programming languages used by the repository contributors of GitHub. Python is also one of the important and fastest-growing programming languages when it comes to machine learning and data science, artificial intelligence, and much more.

Python is an essential skill for building modern applications with AI and machine learning and it’s taking off popularity in the data science landscape is due to its specialized deep learning and machine learning libraries and tools like Scikit-learn, Keras, and TensorFlow, which enable data scientists to develop sophisticated data models that plug directly into a production system.
