@Eric that is probably because on Sololearn you can do the most with web languages because other languages here are very limited, you haven't dinamically input for example

There isn’t really a most popular. There may be one that is currently more used but this will change eventually. It all depends on what you want to do. C++ is the most popular in game development and python is becoming one of the most popular all round.

That does not have a real reason, I mean people could be using more Web languages because as a first approach to programming are accessible. Just as it could be because of the boom they currently have with the arrival of new technologies.

C, C++ and Java are still the most popular these days, I guess. C# is also quite popular, it is used in the Unity game engine.

HTML, Javascript, and Css are probably the most logical languages to learn via Sololearn due to their practicality in the real world. Not to say Java, C++, or Python aren't practical, they just have a wider learning curve than, say, HTML before you become "employable" in the world of software/program development. A person COULD learn those three langauages (HTML, Css, Javascript) on this app, become proficient, and possibly (and I mean possibly) land an entry-level job for a small company or business. C++ on the other hand, not a chance. Pointers and memory management itself requires a solid understanding and have large books solely dedicated to their use (believe me, I have them lol). Sololearn only gives you an introduction to pointers, and moves on. Python is quite large as well, and requires knowledge of BOTH (2 and 3) as a majority of people still prefer to code in 2.7. My advice: learn them all. I started with Python, but grew to love C++. Many job positions usually require programmers to know a minimum of three anyways lol

I notice that web is very popular in SoloLearn though. Why is that?
