Java’s days because the world’s second hottest programming language might be numbered in response to Tiobe’s newest programming language rankings which present Python is changing into more and more widespread amongst builders.
The agency’s Index for October 2020 reveals that Java has been overtaken by C because the world’s hottest programming language when in comparison with the identical interval final 12 months. Python stays in third place however it’s rapidly closing the hole between it and Java.
According to Tiobe CEO Paul Jensen, C and Java have held the highest two spots constantly for the previous 20 years. However, the 25-year-old programming language Java is approaching its “all time low” in recognition because it has fallen by 4.32 proportion factors when in comparison with the place it stood in October of final 12 months.
Tiobe ranks programming languages in its recognition index primarily based on the variety of hits every language will get throughout 25 engines like google.
Rise of Python
Python was first created in 1991 however the programming language has loved new discovered recognition resulting from its use by information scientists and in machine studying.
Tiobe CEO Paul Jensen offered additional perception on Python’s rising recognition within the firm’s TIOBE Index for October 2020, saying:
“Python conquered the third position in the TIOBE index last year, but its popularity is still rising. This month it has reached a new all time high at 11.28%. Since Java is approaching its all time low since 2001, Python and Java are getting pretty close. The gap is now less than 1.3%. Since the start of the TIOBE index, C and Java have always held the 2 top positions. So it would be a unique event, if Python would reach position #2. Let’s see what will happen the next few months.”
Tiobe’s index shares similarities to RedMonk’s July 2020 rankings the place Java dropped outdoors of the highest two as Python took the second spot.
