CodeEval: Python, Java, C++ Top Three Popular Programming Languages

Submitted By Bryan Ruby February 06, 2014

CodeEval recently released their list of Most Popular Programming Languages of 2014. Each year they release this list based on thousands of data points they've collected by processing over 100,000 coding tests and the input of over 2,000 employers. This list confirms what Python and Java developers already know. It is also list to disappoint Tcl developers and those nostalgic of the Visual Basic days.

According to CodeEval, the top five most popular programming languages for 2014 are:

  1. Python (30.3%)
  2. Java (22.2%)
  3. C++ (13.0%)
  4. Ruby (10.6%)
  5. JavaScript (5.2%)

What about the other C variants and PHP? You can see how they ranked and the the remaining languages on the list at CodeEval's blog. Of special interest to Web developers is that when compared to 2013, the data shows that popularity for PHP, Perl, and Java have shrank. CodeEval also notes on their blog that there has been increased interest in Objective-C, C#, as well as Javascript.

CodeEval is a community of over 24,000 competitive developers. Members can compete with each other, challenge their friends and build out their profiles to showcase their coding skills.
