Rating of programming languages ​​(October, 2010)

The Dutch company TIOBE presented the next rating of programming languages . The ranking is based on the data of popular search engines on the number of developers and companies using the language, as well as the number of training courses in this language.

What is new in the October ranking? First of all, it is Apple's Objective-C, which is rapidly gaining momentum, which gained 2.54% in a year, and is striving to become the language of 2010. The appearance in the first twenty of the Go language was already at the beginning of this year. And not just the appearance - it became the language of 2009 according to TIOBE. Now he has moved from 13th place (data for January 2010) to 20th place, but he continues to actively gather followers.

In addition to languages ​​from Google and Apple in 2009, C # from Microsoft and Actionscript from Adobe reached a high level. As for Java, it still remains on the first line, although its popularity continues to fall, and C again slowly but surely goes to the first place.
Interesting is also the unexpected drop in popularity of PHP, and JavaScript. If the situation with PHP is even more or less clear, then with regard to commonly used JavaScript - it is not clear where such a drop in the rating comes from.

Perhaps the most surprising thing is the appearance in the G20 of the legendary American military language Ada, the interest in which elevated him to 17th place in the ranking (compared to 29th place a year ago).

The graph of changes in the popularity of the top ten languages ​​in the ranking, since mid-2001:

In 2009, TIOBE predicted that in the near future, PHP and Ruby would lose popularity, and Python, C # and Erlang would become leaders. Here's what the current forecast for the end of 2010 from TIOBE looks like: C ++ gaining popularity (thanks to the new standard), C # (thanks to good development dynamics) and JavaFX script, but for Java (not keeping up with progress) and Perl (due to the large number of competitors) will come not the best of times. Nevertheless, it is obvious that Apple and Google’s languages ​​are taking the lead, which once again confirms the ancient truth: predictions are a thankless job.

For information, the 2009 language is Go, 2008 - C, 2007 - Python, 2006 - Ruby, 2005 - Java, 2004 - PHP, 2003 - C ++. Other statistics on the link www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html .

Perhaps someone will find it more interesting.

UPD: Thanks DmJ , corrected the tablet, added unclosed brackets :-)

UPD 3 :
Thanks to Nakilon for the chart he made in early October 2010. Judging by all the comments in this topic - the diagram seems to reflect the situation with the rating more real and sensible. At least there are no Ada dinosaurs there.
