Thanks to some investigative work by Reddit, it turns out the jerks over at CrispyCodes just ripped off this graphic from http://blog.codeeval.com/codeevalblog/most-popular-programming-languages-of-2013 props to Terence over at TechGeek for getting to the source of this data.

In a sweet infographic from Crispy.com, we find out that surprisingly Python was the programming language of choice this year. Making up the largest share at 29.8% Python is a pretty big surprise as it gets almost not public attention. Programming languages are sometimes sexy as they power the services we use everyday, but often just do there job and are unheard. Python is in use at Google, Yahoo, CERN and NASA.

The domination of Python is followed closely by Java 25.8 which is used heavily by the web and powers Android. These two are really in a league of their own with the closes competitor C++ which drives a lot of Windows applications and some networking infrastructure.

The more popular languages like Javascript, C# and Objective C have relatively small slices of the programming market this year. Objective C is the language that iOS apps are written in and despite the hundreds of thousands of apps available in the App Store, it accounts for just .1%, wow that’s tiny.

Even C# at just 2.5% is an amazing stat given that it’s one of Microsoft’s most heavily supported languages in their move to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 apps.

    Maybe this is because of what it gives us, the popularity and convenience. What people are preferred.

    “Python is the most popular language because I found that graph that says so”?

  • moigagoo

    Based on what?

    I’d love that to be true, but where’s the source?

  • NigsNeedToGetAlong

    I love random infographics that provide no source or contextual information. It probably wouldn’t be as interesting once we found out these numbers were from a poll taken at a Python developers conference.

    Sigh… and that’s what’s wrong with infographics today – pretty charts with no sources to data.
