what do you think?
C & Python is the best
Java is the most versatile and available on most devices, not surprised there.
hmmm Python is a very efficient language
anyway, I am not sure why VB is not there!
The one that surprises me the most is that Matlab is before HTML.
Programming languages are just tools and for different work you need different tool. How can you compare C# and Matlab? Or Python and SQL?
To my needs I use C# cause I'm writing windows applications, and I like writing them quickly. But C# (or any other language) is not best for everything.
I never understood the flame war behind which one is best.
Since when is HTML a programming language?
since html5? though java script is a language
Well ,things gonna be different after 2015 ,many more technologies ,will emerge ...Such as dot net moving to dot net native compilation..so it willing to give c/++ performance and C# is manageability features ...Scripting language are different ..dont mix them up
I like Assembly and c/C++ ,go
They are all the same
Java is the most preferred programming language so I am not surprised here... but I feel C++ and python should have been much closer to it....
i wouldnt consider SQL a programming language, its really just scripts to query data.
but delphi/pascal should also be included in the list. speaking as someone who pretty much lived and breathed c++ for decades, ive recently tried messing around with delphi and find it much simpler to get things done and more fun, with all the same power. i think ive been converted
Where is bash? or perl?
I do propose a little game here to guess what the criteria of this "top ten" were:
My guess is: List the programming related technologies your friends complained most about when you last talked to them!
not getting why every one here trying to stick JS over Python, there is no comparison between them
You just cant put them all together like that, there are server side and client side languages and languages for the web and other for the desktop. you have to compare by category and purpose of languages.
If HTML is considered a programming language, then there's no way it isn't #1.
I guess half a dozen black hatters have probably spun more HTML than there will ever be java programs.
Delphi is just as powerful and fast as any of those, but unfortunately, my language of choice won't make any top 10 lists, any time soon. I blame Embarcadero!
Scratch that... I blame Borland, for selling it to Embarcadero.
Yes they are wtf!
