If you are willing to learn a new programming language and enhance your skill set, it’s very important to recognise the latest coding trends and make wise decisions. To help you out in making the correct choice, the developer research company RedMonk has just released this year’s biannual list of the top programming languages.
This list is prepared by periodically comparing the relative performance of these languages on GitHub and Stack Overflow. Using two metrics ensures that the language discussions (Stack Overflow) and usage (GitHub) is duly taken into account while preparing this list.
To be included on the list, a programming language must be observable on GitHub and Stack Overflow. These communities are used as their size is large and they get the public exposure needed for such an analysis.
Well, enough about rankings! Let’s learn to code!
