TIOBE Index for May 2015

Have you seen the latest TIOBE rankings report?

The TIOBE Programming Community index is an indicator of the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once a month. The ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors. Popular search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube and Baidu are used to calculate the ratings. Observe that the TIOBE index is not about the best programming language or the language in which most lines of code have been written.

The biggest climbers in the TIOBE index compared to last year are C++ (+1.89), C# (+1.52) and Visual Basic.NET (+1.70). These three programming languages are also the key languages of Microsoft’s Visual Studio. Is this a coincidence? Microsoft’s Visual Studio is one of the few commercial programming environments that stood the test of time. Together with Eclipse it is one of the most frequently used IDEs in industry. So it is no wonder that C++, C# and Visual Basic.NET are on the rise.
