Every year, we publish data on the "Most Popular Coding Languages" based on hundreds of thousands of data points we've collected by processing over 600,000+ coding tests and challenges by over 2,000+ employers.
This gives us a pretty valuable insight on what the trends are in hiring demand amongst tech companies for the upcoming year. It's data we hope will be especially helpful for new computer science graduates or coders looking to stay ahead of the curve.
Although Objective-C, Bash, and Lua made triple digit gains, they are relatively new languages on our platform and still make up only about 1% of submissions on our platform.
An interesting thing to note is the rise of R language which gaining in popularity because of the big data trend. On another major index, TIBOE R language has jumped in ranking from 44 to 18 in a single year. It's a new language that we've just started supporting 2 months ago so we won't have the same data to support it's rise but we're already seeing it's impact and expect it experience high growth this year.
TIBOE is a more accurate measure of language market share compared to the CodeEval index which is a much better indicator for language demand in the industry which can help people predict which languages are going to grow in popularity.
