Most used programming languages
In second position, and consolidating this position that it achieved in 2019, we find ourselves with python thanks to its wide versatility, to develop all kinds of applications (widely used in the educational sector) such as automatic learning tasks based on text, images or videos and in Internet of Things devices.
If we talk about programming languages that in recent years have ceased to have the relevance they had a few years ago, we have to talk about PHP and of Ruby. 8 years ago, PHP was the third most used programming language on GitHub. But, at present, this language is located in the seventh position, due to the three that we have mentioned in addition to typescript C# and C++.
While C# and C++ have remained more or less stable in recent years between the 5th and 6th position, Typescript has experienced enormous growth in recent years to become the fourth most used programming language. Ruby, at its best, was considered the 5th most used programming language, however, for years, it has not exceeded the tenth position in the ranking.
The programming languages that have grown the most in 2002
The programming languages that we have mentioned above are the ones that have been used the most. But, if we talk about the programming languages that have grown the most throughout this year in number of users, we have to talk about LCH (HashiCorp) thanks to the popularity of the Terraform application used to manage data centers.
Rust in others, the languages that have experienced the greatest growth throughout 2022 thanks to their reliability and security, a programming language used mainly for the management of cryptocurrencies and which, in addition, supports object-oriented programming.
