C++ surpasses Java as the most popular programming language

Share post:

According to the most recent TIOBE Index, C++, a cross-platform programming language developed by Bjarne Stroustrup as an extension to the C language, has surpassed Java in terms of programming language popularity for the first time.

According to Paul Jansen, CEO of TIOBE Software in the Netherlands, the growing popularity of C++, which provides programmers with extensive control over system resources and memory, has pushed Java back a notch. The current rankings of the index are as follows: Python came in first, followed by C, C++, and Java. C++ rose to third place, while Java fell to fourth.

The Tiobe index ranks languages based on Google, Bing, Yahoo, and other search engines. The number of engineers worldwide, courses, and third-party vendors relevant to each language are used to determine the ratings.

C# is ranked fifth with 4.92% popularity, Visual Basic is sixth with 3.94%, JavaScript is seventh with 3.19%, and SQL is eighth with 2.22%. Assembly ranks ninth with 1.87%, and PHP ranks tenth with 1.62%.

Python, C, and C++’s rising popularity may make it difficult for other languages to catch up. No language outside the top four achieves a rating increase of more than 1% in the top 50. Java performs better in some other rankings.
