TIOBE Programming Community Index

According to TIOBE:

The TIOBE Programming Community Index gives an indication of the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once a month. The ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors. The popular search engines Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and YouTube are used to calculate the ratings. Observe that the TIOBE index is not about the best programming language or the language in which most lines of code have been written.

Here are some interesting data:

  • Java: constantly loosing, but by far the widely referenced;
  • C, C++, Perl: still strong, but not for long...
  • (Visual) Basic, Python, PHP: strong and getting stronger;
  • C#: steadily up - although not as strong as I thought...

And look, Delphi is still on the top 10!
