Python Shines as Top Programming Language in IEEE Spectrum’s Comprehensive Report; SQL Excels in Job Market

IEEE Spectrum, the magazine under IEEE, has reported the ranking of the most popular programming languages of the year. This year marks the 10th year of the ranking, and Python remains at the top spot with an overall score. Python is also the number one language in terms of trending. Following closely behind are Java, C++, and JavaScript.

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.
