Is it worth learning the HTML language in 2019
Codementor publishes ranking
The search for the most popular programming language is a well-known topic that is repeatedly taken up in various rankings. But what about the least popular language that you shouldn't learn in 2019? Codementor has tried to address this question, but inadvertently raises a completely different question.
Elm is unsuitable as the first programming language for beginners. This is the conclusion that Codementor comes to in its new programming language ranking under the titleStudy of Programming Languages Not to Learn in 2019. The goal was to find the language that is least suitable as the first programming language to be learned. In addition to Elm, there are also more well-known languages on the list, from TypeScript to Go to C #.
The top 5 of the negative ranking
The evaluation of programming languages that should not be learned as a first language is based on three elements: community engagement, labor market, and growth and trends. The first place in the negative ranking goes to the functional programming language Elm. It should therefore by no means be learned as the first programming language this year, if the Codementor team has its way. The Elm community is not particularly active on Stack Overflow, and Elm is also falling heavily in terms of trends. The labor market also has no great need for Elm developers. CoffeeScript, Erlang, Lua and Perl follow in the other places.
Data from GitHub, Stack Overflow and the Codementor offer were used as a basis for the study. Data on the labor market and trend observations were also included. Codementor is an online marketplace platform from Taiwan that has existed since 2013. It was founded to network developers and developer mentors, with the latter being rewarded for their support with coding.

Learning programming languages broadens the horizon
There is also a question that the Codementor team probably did not want to raise: Is it worth looking for programming languages that you shouldn't learn? In a blog entry, software developer Thorsten Ball argues that learning programming languages only brings advantages. For example, the specific use cases should be considered, which are now better covered by certain programming languages. Learning new programming languages also broadens one's horizons, even if these languages are not actively used.
These new perspectives, these ideas and patterns - they linger, they stay with you, even if you end up in another language. And that is powerful enough to keep on learning new languages, because one of the best things that can happen to you when you're trying to solve a problem is a change of perspective.
