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.

    Web celebrity thought-leader Randall Munroe told code monkeys to code in Python, and they fucking do as they are fucking told. There are only two paths in the world: The Trend or death.

    Haw. My seething hatred for Randall knows no bounds. Regarding the first link, it makes sense that the coward gets his highs from DXM and wine coolers because he's too much of a pussy to handle liquor much less real psychedelics.

    I have worked with many scientists and engineers throughout the years, and the handful who studied physics (as opposed to math/compsci/engineering) in college were extremely mathematically capable but otherwise autistic retards.

      Randall has you all figured out.

      Physics tells us that negative reviews are really just positive reviews from people traveling backward in time.

        There's a spit of reason there. After all, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone suggesting Ethanol-fueled is moving forwards with the times.

      Yet not even a bit of their smarts rubbed off on you. You do know that learning doesn't stop when you leave school, right?
