Top 10 Microsoft Programming Languages By Darryl K. Taft
As a software company, Microsoft developers must be proficient in all kinds of programming languages, including Java. However, C++ and C# are two of the primary languages in use at Microsoft. This list is not a ranking of the languages most used by the software giant, but represents a listing of the programming languages that Microsoft uses, promotes and keeps track of for its ongoing business. The list is honed from conversations with Microsoft executives and developers at the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in Los Angeles, as well as information from the language-related sessions at the PDC.
Darryl K. Taft covers the development tools and developer-related issues beat from his office in Baltimore. He has more than 10 years of experience in the business and is always looking for the next scoop. Taft is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and was named 'one of the most active middleware reporters in the world' by The Middleware Co. He also has his own card in the 'Who's Who in Enterprise Java' deck.
