The November list of the PYPL (Popular Language of Programming Languages) has been released. PYPL is a very popular reference indicator, its list data is ranked based on the list of people related to Google search frequency ranking, the raw data from Google Trends, that is, a language or an IDE on Google search more frequently, indicating that it is more popular 。
Developers can use the PYPL as a reference to decide which language or IDE to learn, or which language or database to use in a new software project.
The November list is as follows:
Ten-place programming language rankings remained stable, but competition remained fierce. The most eye-catching was Kotlin, whose month-on-month increase was upgraded from three green arrows last month to four this month’. Other ups and downs are TypeScript, Go and Rust.
It’s worth noting that TypeScript, currently ranked 11th, has caught up with 10th-ranked Matlab at 1.87 percent. Will TypeScript overtake Matlab in the next list and make the top 10 with the former continuing to rise and the latter’s downward trend? Let’s wait and see.
Finally, python and Java were in the top two, at 29.49% and 19.57%, respectively. As can be seen from the trend tables of both, Java’s long-term popularity has not changed much, and the downward trend has become apparent in recent years. Python continued to exert momentum, probably catching up with Java in April last year, when both searches were around 22%. Now, as Java accounts for 20 percent, the gap between it and Python widens. It is clear that Python is becoming more popular today, which means that more and more people want to understand and learn the language.
