    Depends on the type of task you need the language to do, but certainly and undeniably, Whitespace has proven to be one of the most flexible programming languages of the last decade. If you can't write in Whitespace, you are dumb.

    But, if you're a newbie, I suggest you learn Malbolge, it's a simple programming language.

    Although, I think you'd be more comfortable using LOLCODE

    Lots of the software we use if developed in C/C++ or Java.

    CSS is not a programming language. AJAX and jQuery is JavaScript.

    True CSS is for style sheets, but its still a big part of programming a homepage, and worth mentioning.

    Ajax and jQuery are brackets of JavaScript, but they are still defined as programming languages.

    No, that is false. CSS is not used for programming, but for styling. And, one can develop full featured webpages without ever touching CSS. But, I do agree with you the CSS makes web programming very easy and manageable.

    AJAX is a philosophy to perform asynchronous HTTP requests, not a programming language. You write the scripts in Javascript or jQuery.

    jQuery is a Javascript wrapper built in Javascript to bring a Javascript cross-browser compatible client.

    My point is when your dealing with Javascript, AJAX, or jQuery. Your programming with Javascript.

    By far, the most important language is (as it has been for decades) Cobol. Without cobol you wouldn't even be able to get your money out of the ATM

    I think, Java is the most important programming language. Though it has been criticized since its appearance, it is still a dominant. And there are reasons for this. Java has powerful traffic opportunities, cross-platform interoperability and squiggle brackets work. Android is completely built in Java, so it succeeded in the mobile apps market. Also Blu-Ray standard is built around Java. Recently I've read a good article that explains the reasons of Java dominance among other languages -
    https://diceus.com/10-reasons-why-java-is-dominant/. I hope someone will find it interesting and useful!
