Jan 10, 2011

A normalized comparison of indepedent and qualified datasets, including Yahoo Search, Powell's Books, Freshmeat, Google Code, Delicious, Ohloh, confirms the growth of Python, now placed sixth among the most used programming languages, and winner of the TIOBE prize as programming language of 2010.
Python catchment area confirms its constant growth

Python Logo

Without a corporate sponsor, and counting just on its undisputed qualities (including its double nature of high- and low-level language), Python keeps on attracting crowds of new programmers and, even better, of converted programmers, becoming the successor of Perl in systems scripting. An ever growing number of universities uses Python to train the new generations of programmers, since it's easy to learn.

Those data, from independent sources and from a significant statistical sample of users, are available for example on and on the site of TIOBE Software, a programmers community that assigns the "programming language of the year" award, that in 2010 our favorite language won with an increase of more than 1,8% during the year.

Considering that most competing languages, including PHP, are showing a decreasing trend, Python may in a few year reach the diffusion of Java and C / C++.

We remind that Python itself is one of the strong points of Plone and of the Web frameworks used by RedTurtle Technology for our solutions for public and private Customers.
