A Competitor Ripped our Design and Data

* Update - CrispyCodes has removed their logos and cited their source. 

Earlier this year we released an popular infographic called the "Most Popular Coding Languages of 2013" which was widely circulated and has been viewed over 500,000+ times on our blog and through social media. 

This of course stirred up some controversy because many people saw the infographic without digging into the context which was that this data was based on the over 100,000+ coding challenge we processed at CodeEval in 2012. 

We wanted to give some insight to developers on what languages employers were hiring for, not actual adoption rates like the data TIBOE releases every year. 

So it baffles us why a competitor by the name of CrispyCodes with clients like Xerox, Cheveron, and Pfizer would directly rip our design and data and not make any reference as to where they got their sources from try to sell their product.

They do say that imitation is the best form of flattery, so thank you but maybe you should publish your own data instead. 

Also, thanks to all the members of our developer community of 20,000+ who have reported this to us!
