  • Programming language of the year? Python is standout in latest rankings

    Python gained 3.62 percentage points year over year in Tiobe's January 2019 index, beating rises by Visual Basic .NET and Java, the second and third biggest gainers. Python was created in 1989 by Dutch programmer Guido van Rossum, who relinquished his role as Python's 'Benevolent dictator for life' in July.

    Python entered the top three in Tiobe's popularity index in September and thanks to its use in a growing number of fields should stay there for some time, alongside mainstays Java, C, and C++, which have been in the top three for two decades.

    Python, it seems, is a hit with everyone. As Tiobe notes, it's often the first language taught at universities and it's the go-to language for statistical analysis, machine learning, scripting, web programming, and scientific computing.
