It's no longer a secret — learning to code is now one of the most valuable career skills available.

If you have even the slightest interest in learning to code, you should first know what languages are out there. We compiled a short list of programming languages with a brief look at how well they pay and how hard they are to master:

The industry is overflowing with developer/engineer jobs and companies are struggling to find candidates with the necessary qualifications.

"People who learn to code really do begin to see the world differently," said Kevin Newsum, Austin Community Manager for New York Code + Design Academy. "Not just in terms of the opportunities available to them, but also in their ability to affect real change, and think big for themselves and their communities. Learning code is a total game changer."

Each language has it's own unique following who are devoted to learning more. C++, Java, Python, JavaScript, Ruby, PHP, and C# groups meet monthly to mentor and share ideas with one another.
