Which programming language is the best?

Programming languages are generally designed with a purpose in mind. Assembly was designed to abstract cryptic machine code. C was designed as a low level systems language. Bash was designed as a shell language. Python was designed to be high level & easy to learn. Go was designed to be modern & support concurrency primitives. Rust was designed as a safe general purpose language.

It is therefore incorrect to assume that there exists a programming language that is superior in every situation – the requirements of some situations may be entirely unrelated or even incompatible. A programmer therefore ought to chose a programming language, based on the constraints of time & capital available and the requirements of the task at hand.
