Top 10 most popular programming languages

 

No surprise with number 1. Number 9 may be a surprise to many.

TIOBE tracks the popularity of programming languages. Note that the rating is not about unveiling the ‘most superior’ programming language.

The rating is based on number of skilled engineers and search engine stats.

Number 1 is no surprise. It is Java. Note that Android’s success has got lot to with Java’s re-emergence (Java is the official language for Android development). So, I’m guessing it is tough for C to catch up to Java from now on.

Number 9 is Perl. Coming from Unix Administrator background, I see why this is the case. Countless tools and ad-hoc scripts are written in PERL in the Unix world. While it not the prettiest out there, PERL is not going away any time soon.

And by the way, if you have any doubts whether or not to learn python, you can stop doubting and start learning.

Here is the complete list:
