The Dutch software quality specialist, Tiobe, has just published its annual list of the most popular programming languages and Python is named “programming language of the year”. The C language is relegated to second position, Java occupies third place while C++ and C# complete the top 5.
Last July, Tiobe CEO Paul Jansen predicted that “Python seems to have the best chance of becoming number 1 (this year) due to the rise of data mining and artificial intelligence”.
Python is the most taught language in universities. He is number one in statistics, artificial intelligence, scripting, and writing system testing. He is one of the leaders in web programming and scientific computing. For the record, this language owes its name to the British comedians, the Monty Python.
