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.

    that's kinda awesome!

    I got use to no brackets (less typing), and from perl python lacks the intutive regex stuff.

    Something I have not found a replacement for is "for(inti=0; i10 ; i++)" type syntax, being stuch with "while i10:".

    I know there is for i in range(): type expressions, but having the for manage increments etc seems neater.
