The cryptobloggers are not very precise with their definitions of altcoin, so it depends on what you take as your definition of altcoin. For example, alternative to Bitcoin can be narrow like Bitcoin Cash (which is just the same technology as Bitcoin but with basically one alteration) or it can be broad like Ether (substantially different underlying technology). In general, you can use any programming language to implement a distributed ledger, but the programming languages with the most predictable and stable behavior is preferred. Tokens are different and much easier to get started on. The Solidity documentation is fairly readable if that's the direction you wanted to go.
