IEEE Spectrum Top Programming Languages #Programming @IEEEorg @IEEESpectrum
IEEE Spectrum ranks the popularity of dozens of programming languages. You can filter them by excluding sectors that aren’t relevant to you, such as “Web” or “Embedded.” (The sectors that languages are assigned to are based on typical use patterns they’ve seen in the wild, rather than atypical or proof-of-concept projects.)
The default set of weights produces our IEEE Spectrum ranking, but there are preset weights for those more interested in what’s trending or most looked for by employers. Don’t like the presets? Make your own ranking by adjusting the weights yourself using the “Create Custom Ranking” option.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
