The RedMonk Programming Language Rankings: January 2020 #Programming @redmonk

Redmonk continues the work originally performed by Drew Conway and John Myles White in ranking programming languages as to popularity.  The above plot can be difficult to parse even at full size, so here are the numerical rankings.

1 JavaScript
2 Python
2 Java
4 PHP
5 C#
6 C++
7 Ruby
7 CSS
9 TypeScript
9 C
11 Swift
12 Objective-C
13 Scala
13 R
15 Go
15 Shell
17 PowerShell
18 Perl
19 Kotlin
20 Haskell

the drop of C++ (6) by one spot is overshadowed by the rise of Ruby from #8 to #7.

On Python:

Python (+1): Python hasn’t been singled out in these rankings all that often, in part because its performance has been steady, almost metronomically so. With the exception of one quarter, it spent approximately four years sitting in fourth place, jumping up to third place three years ago and holding – until this month. For the first time in the history of these rankings which began in 2012, we have a non-Java or JavaScript entry in our number two slot. It didn’t displace either of those languages, but it has tied Java for the first time.

We are often asked about the reasons that particular languages rise or fall in usage, and there are several patterns that have tended to correlate with increased (or decreased) usage. One of those is versatility. Like the language it tied with in this run, Java, Python has continued to find a role for itself in new workloads and use cases, even as it faces more specialized competition in these arenas. This, as much as the language’s general accessibility and ease of use, is one of the most important factors in Python’s ability to not merely survive, but thrive.
