Among developers, Python is the most popular programming language, followed by C, Java, C++, and JavaScript; among employers, Java is the most sought after, followed by C, Python, C++, and JavaScript.

Or so says the 2017 IEEE Spectrum ranking, published this week.

IEEE Spectrum, a publication of the The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, a technical advocacy organization, says it evaluated 12 metrics from 10 sources to arrive at this conclusion.

It claims to have culled data from Google Search, Google Trends, Twitter, GitHub, Stack Overflow, Reddit, Hacker News, CareerBuilder, Dice, and its own digital library.

    It's a language designed to make complicated things easy for idiots. And modern college kids most certainly are idiots. They start crying because they don't know where the missing closing parenth goes in a single-nested if statement.

    Guido van Rossum created it because his kid wouldn't stop crying during his programming lessons. Shut the little fucker up, you know?
