Hackathon, programming language





  • Github recently published some stats on languages used on their repositories FWIW.
    Here's some trend data in percentages upto 2013: http://bit.ly/1naVUCA
    Trends look pretty similar to the Hackathon trends, as you would expect.

  • This isn't a new stat, it's an year old



  • The stats haven't changed much over the last 5 years. Javascript is still by far the most popular which indicates that most programmers are pretty low tech and superficial, dealing with only scripting languages.

  • Yeah that's also correct. People still love Javascript more than any other programming language as it's easy to start with. Although Python is giving a tough competition to Javascript these days.



  • I think C is the best language to start with. And end with!

  • I would say c and c++ the most popular and basic language to learn. If someone wants to get started with programming language this is the only language they should learn first.
