Let’s crowdsource our combined wisdom as Codecademy users to predict TIOBE’s next programming language of the year. For 2018, the distinction went to Python, based on its gaining the most ranking points during the year 2018 in terms of percentage share of popularity as compared to all other programming languages. For details on how the ratings are performed, see the TIOBE Index page.
TIOBE’s programming language of the year for 2019 will be announced during the early days of January, 2020. On January 1, 2020, we’ll end the polling here, and announce TIOBE’s determination as soon as that information becomes available. Below are the TIOBE Index statistics for January, 2019 that will serve as the basis of comparison to the statistics for January, 2020 for the purpose of making the determination. At that time, the programming language of the year for 2019 will be the one with the highest number in the Change column on the right side of the table, which represents the amount of change that has occurred in the Ratings column for each language over the past twelve months. Note that in January, 2019, Python ranked highest in the Change column with +3.62%.
|Jan 2019||Jan 2018||Change||Programming Language||Ratings||Change|
|5||7||^||Visual Basic .NET||6.459%||+3.20%|
After you have visited the TIOBE Index page, have examined the programming language popularity trends, and have given the topic some careful consideration, feel free to vote and engage in this discussion. We would be interested in knowing what language you predict will receive the distinction for 2019, and how you arrived at that conclusion.
Vote below for the language that you predict will be the TIOBE programming language of the year for 2019.
- Visual Basic .NET
- Assembly Language
- Delphi/Object Pascal
- Other (a language not listed here)
