Choosing the right programming language to start learning can often be a difficult task. The developer landscape is constantly evolving, and a language that is popular today can seemingly become dated in just a few months. Ensuring that you are investing your time in the most relevant and in-demand programming languages can make a difference when looking at and applying for jobs. Luckily, Devpost has put together a report that can help you choose the right programming languages to pick up.

Devpost recently published their yearly Student Hacker Report on the most popular technologies and APIs being used by students in hackathons around the world. If you are looking to find the some of the most popular, up-and-coming languages to begin learning, this report is a great place to start. In the Geo APIs category, you will notice that the Esri ArcGIS API for JavaScript is listed as one of the top 5 Geo APIs currently being used.

Devpost has also put together a list of many hackathon winning apps that were built using Esri software. The WINNER tag indicates that the app won an award at the hackathon it was entered in. Check out some of the excellent apps that were built with Esri software to get inspiration for your next project (or next year’s ECCE App Challenge)!
