There are a range of programming languages that can be used for a range of different purposes. Here in the Digital Enterprise Project it is our aim to give you a hands-on experience in 5 programming languages which are very relevant in todays ever evolving world of information technology. Please read below for a description of these 5 programming languages.

HTML HTML, which stands for “Hyper Text Mark-up Language”, is a programming language used to create content for webpages. HTML is an excellent way to get you started on coding and is usually one of the first stepping stones for programmers worldwide. This language uses tags elements and data to properly structure headings, images, sounds, animations, weblinks, etc on a website.
CSS CSS, which stands for “Cascading Style Sheets”, is a programming language that is commonly used together with HTML to style the latter’s content (i.e. the content of a website you are working on). CSS helps present content to a website user in a graphically attractive manner by editing the style of particular HTML tag elements.
C++ C++ is a popular general-purpose programming language based on the older C programming language. It is used to create small programs that your computer can execute in realtime. C++ represents an excellent starting point for learning how to code.
JavaScript JavaScript is a scripting programming language used to add dynamic functions to a website. In practice, JavaScript allows you to provide your website user with an interactive experience where they can dictate what content of your website to explore.
Java Java is an object-oriented programming language used to create programs that perform basic and not-so-basic tasks. Coding with Java is done by use of logic and arithmetics.
