Python Tops IEEE’s List of Popular Programming Languages

IEEE Spectrum has released its annual list of top programming languages, which indicates that “Python has held onto its comfortable lead, with Java and C once again coming in second and third place, respectively.” JavaScript and C++ round out the top five.

The interactive rankings are created by “weighting and combining 11 metrics from eight sources – CareerBuilder, GitHub, Google, Hacker News, the IEEE, Reddit, Stack Overflow, and Twitter,” and you can  filter the results according to your preferences by excluding sectors that aren’t relevant to your interests.
