What IoT programming language works best for you?

There are 11 IOT programming languages you can use in your Internet of Things engagements. Start thinking about which one is right for you.

By now, you have all heard the term.

The Internet of Things, or IoT, to put it in its familiar acronym.

As all companies move forward, they must come up with the application software that will allow them to take advantage of the hardware platforms in IoT that are easier to engineer than ever before.

But which IoT programming language is the correct one to use for your enterprise?

That choice depends upon:

  • Your hardware platform
  • The familiarity your development team has with the language
  • The compatibility the language has with the total components of your IoT system
  • The efficiency of the code chosen

In this post from Curtis Franklin Jr. at Information Week, he lists the 11 languages that make the most sense to use when becoming engaged in an IoT project.

The languages are:

  • C
  • C++
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • Python
  • Go
  • Rust
  • Parasail
  • B#
  • Assembler
  • Forth

If you had to pick one language to use for IoT project, which one would it be, and why?
