A computer programming language is a set of instructions that tells a computer how to behave. Countless computer programming languages have been created, thousands are in use, and new ones are written every day. Computer programming language courses that offer certification for programming in one of the more commonly used languages — HTML, Java, C++, Visual Basic, Perl, SQL, .NET, XML, FoxPro — are a definite career plus.

When sourcing computer programming language training, consider:

1. Enrolling in courses that offer certification in computer programming languages.
2. Learning early computer programming languages still in use, such as taking C++ courses.
3. Taking Java courses to master this web favorite.
4. Attending Perl courses for writing CGI scripts.
5. Signing up for SQL courses for better database management.

Learn computer programming languages to enhance your skills

Computer programming language courses that offer certification can give programmers an edge in the marketplace.

Early computer programming languages still in use

Many of today's important computer programming languages, such as FORTRAN, LISP, COBOL, Perl and C++ are descendants of languages that were originally developed from the 1950s to the 1980s.

Take Java courses to master this web favorite

Java courses are particularly popular due to Java's web programming ability, including Java applications called applets that are downloaded from a web server and run on the user's computer.

Take Perl courses for writing CGI scripts

The current version of Perl, Perl 5, is one of the most popular ways to write CGI scripts, which are commonly used to allow web servers to interact dynamically with users. Perl courses that specialize in CGI scripting are widely available.
