According to the TIOBE 2018 list, the four most popular programming languages are:
I’ve used the top three for many many years. However until now I have not got around to looking seriously at the fourth (just the occasional dabbling). In the final months of 2018, I finally got serious about Python - and here are some notes I made about:
- Python Notes – what the introductory books don’t mention
- Python - Distributing and Installing Code
- Python - Asynchronous Programming with Coroutines
One of the nice things about Python is the huge amount of helpful information available on the internet (ie the active community). One of the ugly things about Python is the huge amount of poor-quality information available on the internet :-). I’ll let you judge which category my articles fall into …
BTW, I do have my doubts about the TIOBE index: it is hard to believe that Delphi/Object Pascal is really on the rise (from 16th last year to 12th this year)!
(Languages next on my list: Lua, Rust, Kotlin, and Julia)
