However, when it comes to programming languages for job hunting, SQL takes the number one spot. This is due to the fact that SQL is often a required skill in job applications, alongside other languages. Python comes in second place, with a fairly close score.
The report also highlights the efficiency of the R language, which is highly popular but also niche. It is powerful but difficult to port to other languages, similar to what has been observed with Fortran and Cobol.
TLDR: Python retains its top spot as the most popular programming language overall and in terms of trending, while SQL takes first place for programming language skills in job hunting. R is noted for its high popularity and efficiency, although it can be challenging to port to other languages, similar to Fortran and Cobol.
