The latest TIOBE Index, which ranks programming languages by popularity, has shown some interesting changes in November 2023. One notable change is the rapid ascent of Kotlin. Just two months ago, it was sitting at the 20th spot, but it climbed to 18th last month, and now it has jumped to the 15th position.
Another language that has gained momentum this month is Scratch. Last year, it ranked 17th, and now it sits comfortably at the 11th spot, inching closer to the coveted Top 10.
TIOBE has observed that Kotlin has become a direct competitor to Java in terms of popularity. Any Java platform can be replaced entirely with Kotlin, and it is even considered a more modern language that solves various issues. It is highly possible that Kotlin will easily break into the Top 10.
TLDR: The TIOBE Index for November 2023 reveals the rapid rise of Kotlin, which has become a direct rival to Java. Scratch has also gained momentum, inching closer to the Top 10. The top 10 languages remain consistent, with Kotlin poised to join their ranks soon.
