“Python appears to be unstoppable,” argues the commentary on August’s edition of the TIOBE index (which makes an attempt to calculate programming-language recognition primarily based on search outcomes for programs, distributors, and “expert engineers”).
By that measure Python’s “market share” rose one other 2% on this month’s index — to an all-time excessive of 15.42%.
It’s exhausting to discover a area of programming during which Python isn’t used extensively these days. The one exception is (safety-critical) embedded techniques due to Python being dynamically typed and too sluggish. That’s the reason the performant languages C and C++ are gaining recognition as nicely for the time being.
If we take a look at the remainder of the TIOBE index, not that a lot occurred final month. Swift and PHP swapped locations once more at place 10, Rust is getting near the highest 20, Kotlin is again within the high 30, and the new Google language Carbon enters the TIOBE index at place 192.
InfoWorld notes it has been 10 months since Python first claimed the index’s #1 spot last October, “changing into the one language apart from Java and C to carry the No. 1 place.”
Within the various Pypl Popularity of Programming Language index, which assesses language recognition primarily based on Google searches of programming language tutorials, the highest 10 rankings for August had been:
1. Python, 28.11% share
2. Java, 17.35%
4. C#, 7.08%
5. C/C++, 6.19%
6. PHP, 5.47%
7. R, 4.35%
8. TypeScript, 2.79%
9. Swift, 2.09%
10. Goal-C, 2.03%
