TIOBE Programming Community Index

TIOBE Programming Community Index

The TIOBE Programming Community index gives an indication 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. The popular search engines Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and YouTube 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.

Delphi in the top 10, cool!

  1. Yaahoooo, i am still loyal to delphi ;). the only reason for me to change (to C#) is the .NET compact framework which is not supported by delphi and they don\’t plan to until now.
