Java language was developed in 1990s. It was developed by Sun Microsystems and it is still most demanding, all purpose programming language. It is class based, object oriented programming language and is platform-independent. It is simpler; the syntax is much more readable than C, C++ or any other language.

It is therefore easy to write, compile, debug, and learn than other programming languages which permits us to create modular programs and reusable code.

It is widely used and highly popular language for web development.


Python was designed in 1991. And is developed by Python Software Foundation. It was developed for giving prominence on code readability. Its syntax permit programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code. It is a highly used and all-purpose programming language which is dynamic in nature. Dynamic means developer can write and run the code without the need of a compiler. It is very straightforward to learn and use. It is used in Big Data and Machine Learning.

Python is extremely common in Web development. It is capable of powering some of the most popular sites in the world like Spotify, Instagram, Pinterest, Mozilla, Yelp, etc. It has a Supportive Community. It has multiple Libraries and Frameworks so it can be used according to the project requirements. This high-level language is considered easy for beginners to understand and learn.


JavaScript is the programming language for the web. It is a prototype based, multi-paradigm, interpreted, lightweight programming language which consists of first class functions. It is largely referred as the scripting language for web pages .This language do have ability of controlling of the browser, editing content on a document, allowing client-side scripts to communicate with users as well as asynchronous communication.

JavaScript is the core technologies of the World Wide Web. It is a necessary part of web applications. It supports functional, even driven as well as imperative programming styles. JavaScript and Java include language name, syntax, and respective standard libraries in similar. But these two languages are distinct and differ greatly in design. JavaScript can calculate, manipulate and validate data.


CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets while HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. HTML is nothing but the standard markup language for the web pages. CSS generally describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

CSS once paired with HTML allows a developer to choose and additionally define how a web page or a website will finally look or how it will appear to the visitors of the web platform. Elements on which CSS has impact includes font style, font size, the overall layout, the colors and other design elements.


This language was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in the year 1979 . And it was later enhanced and renamed in 1983. C++ is a general purpose, well compiled, object oriented as well as case sensitive web programming language.

It is thought of as a middle-level language as it makes use of both low-level features as well as high-level feature. It is not only imperative but also offers facilities for low-level memory manipulation. Major websites like Amazon, eBay and Google uses C++ for parts of their infrastructure. In a lot many ways C++ is similar to C language.
