Objective-C is now more popular than Java and C++
How the TIOBE index is drive by the iOS money making apps! This month Objective-C has become more popular even than C++. Both Objective-C and C++ started in early 1983 as successors of the C language. Now Objective-C more popular (thanks to the iPhone and iPad), but not as a direct competitor of C++ any more.
The TIOBE Programming Community index is not just an index about what is the best programming language, but an
programming languages. The index is updated once a month. The ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors.
You should check the index regularly to check whether your programming skills are still up to date or to make a strategic decision about what programming language should be adopted when starting to build a new software system. I'm glad to see my favorites - C# and Python are still in the top 10. Which are yours? And what position?
