Python jako nejpopulárnější programovací jazyk?

Pokud si do vyhledávače zadáte výraz „programming language popularity“ s největší pravděpodobností odkazy na TIOBE Index a PYPL (PopularitY of Programming Language Index) Index. Toto jsou dva pravděpodobně nejpopulárnější indexy ukazující popularity programovacích jazyků. Dlouhá léta se tyto indexy lišily. PYPL ukazoval na prvním místě Python, zatím co TIOBE C a Javu a Python se většinou vyskytoval mezi desátým a pátým místem.

Dnes jsem se po nějaké době opět podíval na tyto index a PYPL stále ukazuje Python jako #1 a TIOBE jako #2.

TIOBE Index for November 2020

November Headline: Python is unstoppable and surpasses Java

For the first time since the start of the TIOBE index nearly 20 years ago, Java and C don’t make up the top 2 positions any more. C is still number one, but it is Python that claims the second position now. Some say that Python’s recent surge in popularity is due to booming fields such as data mining, AI and numerical computing. But I have my own take on this. I believe that Python’s popularity has to do with general demand. In the past, most programming activities were perfomed by software engineers. But programming skills are needed everywhere nowadays and there is a lack of good software developers. As a consequence, we need something simple that can be handled by non-software engineers, something easy to learn with fast edit cycles and smooth deployment. Python meets all these needs.

Some time ago I had a flat tyre and called the road patrol to help me out. The mechanic asked about my living and when I used the word „software“ in my answer, he smiled and started talking very enthousiastically about his own passion: programming in Python. From that moment on, I knew Python would become ubiquitous – Paul Jansen CEO TIOBE Software
