For instance, if you’re a banking or financial institution and you’re interested in developing a website or application, you need to consider which language best suits your needs for that specific industry.
Working with Profit Pros, our team at Onsharp utilized certain programming languages to help them create a simple, one-page site focused on the product benefits, with clear calls-to-action detailing how users could try the product. By making the right programming language choice, Profit Pros can reach a wider range of customers and cater to a wider range of needs.
How Programming Language is Used
The two parts to look at when designing a website are front end development and back-end development. Front-end development has to do with how a website looks and back-end development has to do with how the website works.
The other piece of the website creation puzzle is back-end development, which has to do with the server (computer) that runs the website software and makes it available to you, me, and the rest of the world. The primary back-end languages that Onsharp uses for web and mobile development projects are C# (C sharp), Python, and PHP to manage our clients’ databases, as well as site users and site performance. Solid back-end development is also important for preventing security flaws.
Additionally, It’s important for developers to use the same code base, programming language across all devices so that a site adapts itself to the screen size of the device it’s being viewed on to create a responsive website.

Some Questions to Ask When Choosing the Best Programming Languages for Your Project
Ultimately, you want to choose a programming language for your next project that results in less time spent maintaining your website and apps, scaling up your project, and security down the road. Here are some important questions to ask yourself when choosing which language to use:
- Which type of environment will my project run on? Do I just need a website or do I need an app as well?
- Do you have the infrastructure or hardware to support the programming languages?
- Will you need specific features, tools, or libraries that you need the programming language to perform?
- How much time, money, and resources do you have for your project?
- Do you need to integrate an application system source code type (legacy code) that is no longer supported?
- Can your developers program the language you need?
Every project is unique, which is why Onsharp is here to help guide you in the right direction.
