We've just released our annual "Most Popular Programming Languages" statistics for 2013. This year, Python held on to #1 spot but we saw a significant drop with it's marketshare losing almost 7% while Java gained 3.5% closing the gap to just 4% between the two leaders. Perl lost almost 21% and PHP lost almost 8%. The biggest gainer was C# which leaped up 500% while C was up a modest 22.5%.
Statistics and Figures are based on a sample size of over 100,000+ challenges processed from Employers who have run challenges on CodeEval in 2012.
CodeEval is a community of developers interested in solving programming challenges. Community members can compete with each other, challenge their friends and build out their profiles to showcase to friends and employers too.
