Top 10 Programming Languages Today
Twice a year, RedMonk releases its latest rankings on programming languages. For the past five years, they have been charting the popularity of different programming languages based on their popularity on the Q&A site StackOverflow and the number of lines of code written and stored on the code hosting site GitHub.
