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 declines in the TIOBE index, compared to one year ago, are Objective-C (from 3rd place to 15th place) and R (from 12th place to 18th place). You can explain the drop for the once-popular Objective-C language to Apple’s decision to move development to Swift. Java’s still at the top with a very strong lead.
