Most Popular Programming Languages: What's Trending?

  • Previous
    Intro slide


    There are a variety of ways to determine what programming language is most popular. One is to do surveys and simply ask people what they think is most popular. We've done that on our developer sites. Another method is using the Tiobe index listings.

    In this slide show, we take a different cut at programming language popularity. Simply put, we take a look at what Google says is Trending using the Google Trends tool. We compared five programming languages to show how they fare against each other. One thing the slides will show is that languages trend differently from country to country.

Google Trends provides some interesting data and we take a look at five of the top programming languages. Is your programming language trending the right direction?
