Programing Statistics

2012, January

Since 2002, the beginning of this chart, Java has been going downhill. C++ took a dive in 2004 and has not recovered, continuing down slowly from there.
Though C# was slowly climbing up from the bottom till Jan. 2012, it seems that Objective-C may become the object-oriented language of preference (beyond Mac OS X and the iPhone) – going from -0- in mid 2009 to slightly topping C++ in 3 years.

Voted "a very useful comment":
"On the iPhone, where I care about performance, I find that I use Objective-C only for accessing the APIs that are in Objective-C. I use C for APIs in C (like OpenGL ES) and for my own code. I prefer to use C for anything I think I might port (say, to a Java-based phone, or to JavaScript). Porting from Objective-C to anything else gives me a stomach ache." … "For the last few years I’ve been doing PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript." – Rhett Anderson
