Cool statistics on programming language popularity up to date with long term graphs:

http://www.tiobe.com/tpci.htm

Looks like C++ has been on a constant downhill while java remains popular. I don't like this trend. I don't like it at all. tongue

Interesting - but do keep in mind that this is availability of engineers. Doesn't say anything about their abilities, though. So you get a zillion not-so-talented fresh-out-of-uni Java coders, what's that really worth? smiley

Go C#! smiley

Frameworks seem to be the way to go. They're just more productive. In a recent DotNetRocks podcast they talked about this issue. Java looks like it's on the decline though.

The Delphi decline isn't a surprise.

In a 2006, the growth of Ruby is spectacular!
I think that might be ruby on rails and all the 37signals momentum.

I spent 2-3 years doing perl daily, never switched to python, but ruby (as soon as it has a good math library) may be interesting enough to try. Nowadays I try to stay as high - level as possible; R is still my fave.

I agree on C#. I think it has a good potential and will become increasingly more popular. Actually, last week I decided to take the step from VB to C#.

About Delphi's declination: I don't see Delphi mentioned in the graph?  huh

It's not in the graph, it's in the first table when you open the link.

I'm not too fond of C# and .net,... for many reasons,
but that's just me smiley

I'll stick to good 'ol C++ for programming, and perl for scripting and cgi, I haven't really done too much python, maybe that's something to look into as well. I tried Ruby and hated it.

The bottom list (continuation of the top one) is also pretty interesting,
I can't believe Fortran is listed higher than Bash scripts for example,...
