I'm in the USA, and essentially only have visibility to coding languages in typical use in my USA-based business. These are primarily C++, C#, and Java. Are these languages that are common here also ones that are commonly used world-wide? To help narrow down the question, I am mostly curious about the former USSR countries that have (or had at recent times) a similar technical programming prowess to what can be attributed to programming abilities in the USA. Just wondering if programming languages can be considered universal languages, or, like spoken/written communication languages, are region or country-specific.
