Traditional Programming Language Job Trends — August 2013
It is August, so that means it is time to review the job trends. First we look at the traditional programming languages, which includes Java, C++, C#, Objective C, Perl and Visual Basic. I have not decided how to change this yet, but hopefully soon I will get the change to mix things up a bit. As always, please review some of the other job trends posts to see if your favorite language is already in one of these posts.
The C family of languages is incredibly popular if you go by the TIOBE Programming Community Index. That has not changed going into June 2013, but one language is creeping up fast.
Popularity For Objective-C Has Stalled
Traditional development trends has ensured that the C and C++ programming languages remain popular even decades after their creation. Despite being created in the same year as C++, Objective-C was never as popular. That all changed with the advent of the iPhone, but things are starting to slow down.
