Python remains the most popular programming language, C and PHP are losing share

Python remains the most popular programming language, C and PHP are losing share. Python is now used almost everywhere, with a few exceptions. Java, C and C++ consistently in the top five.

Python has strengthened its position and once again confirmed the status of the most popular programming language. According to analysts from TIOBE Software, this month Python gained 2% of its share of popularity and is now at an all-time high of 15.42%. Now it is difficult to find a programming area that does not use this language. The only exceptions are security-critical systems due to the fact that Python is a dynamic language with strong typing, and it is also too slow.

A year ago, C was the most popular programming language, now it has dropped to second position. The top five also includes Java, C++ and C#. Compared to last month, there are not many changes. Swift and PHP have switched places again, Rust is approaching the top 20, Kotlin is back in the top 30, and the new Google Carbon language is already at 192.

TIOBE Software has been ranking the popularity of programming languages ​​for 10 years. The company’s analysts count search queries from Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube and Baidu. The number of qualified specialists around the world and the courses available are also taken into account. The popularity index is updated every month.

It is important to note that the TIOBE rating does not mean that a particular programming language is the best. In addition, it does not take into account the amount of code written. The index can be used to check which language programming skills are currently up to date in and to decide on a language choice for a new project.
