Top programming languages as of December 2016
- C (but popularity has fallen by half year over year)
- Visual Basic .NET
- Assembly language
- Visual Basic
- Delphi/Object Pascal
Main take aways from this list:
Java, however, rates twice as high as C, which is higher than C++. Notably Python has risen to 4th place on the list, and assembly language makes it in to the top 10 at #9.
C and C++, and assembly language, are the languages of the Internet of Things devices (other languages are used too).
