6 Most Dreaded Programming Languages of 2019
We have already talked about many programming languages in our past blogs, we also have seen upcoming programming languages like Microsoft Bosque and we are getting updates daily. So, the upcoming languages or current most updated language is replacing other languages and most of them are not used anymore or new developers don’t even know about them, maybe because now we have found the faster and easier way of programming and the other reason is that they were not used much and couldn’t gain the popularity. Also, you have to adapt to newer technologies, you have to learn new programming languages as it updates. So here is the list of some dreaded programming languages.

Visual basics for application (VBA) is a programming language developed by Microsoft, It is primarily used with Microsoft office applications such as MSExcel, MS-Word, and MS-Access. It was generally used for making powerful and useful tools in MS Excel using linear programming. Many people used VBA but didn’t continue. According to a survey, more than 75% of people don’t want to to continue with VBA.
2. Assembly Language
Assembly language has many advantages like less memory usage, time efficient and uses like the low-level embedded system but still, it has failed to get interested from developers and became the third most dreaded programming language and very less IT companies ask for assembly language expert. Assembly language is also quite tough to learn as it has many complexities. More than 64% of respondents of the survey showed disinterest towards this language.
3. Objective C
Steve Job used objective C. Objective C was made to be more flexible with OOPs(Object Oriented Programming) but it could not meet the expectations of developers. Apple also moved to Objective C to swift for its OSX and IOS operating system. According to a recent survey, 68% of developers showed no interest in continuing it. Also, we have some other C based languages like C++ and C# which are pretty good and popular try learning them.
4. C Language
C is also losing its popularity and there are many reasons for it, one of the common reason is due to upcoming programming languages C is not easy to program with especially new developers prefer programming languages with easy syntax and low complexity. Though still, many developers start with C and then move to another programming language. As per the report, 57.5% of programmers are working with this language but don’t want to take it further. Though one of the main disadvantages of C is that it does not support object-oriented programming.
5. F# (F Sharp)
Most of you might not have heard of this language F#, F# is developed by Microsoft and multi-paradigm programming language that encompasses functional, imperative, and object-oriented programming methods.F# has many disadvantages as well like it has poor support for IOS, Android and web development also there is no GUI support. From starting F# was not much popular and many developers didn’t continue with F# people prefer using C#.C# is far better in terms of Object Oriented Programming.
PHP is the 5th most dreaded programming language though it still has many advantages in server-side scripting and many companies still uses PHP, though new programming languages have also come like python and having skills in just PHP won’t work as you have to upgrade your knowledge in other fields like ML and AI. 54% of developers who started with PHP don’t want to continue anymore. There are many disadvantages of PHP as well as Lack of option to modify core behavior etc.
