They've made incredible leaps and bounds in a short period of time, and the sheer audacity of providing higher level language features (think Python, Java, C#) with an executable speed darn close to C and C++ is just frankly awesome. That, and being able to generate readable C code from it and *really* get under the hood is neat.


It should, at least, get an honorary mention. (:

this is not fare guys. Fortran 95/2003 is hugely popular and recommended for parallel computation. Even as oop , its far better then other oop-special language. you should include it. this language is highly rated in science community and most of the computational physics/chemistry fellow still prefer that for good reason.

Didn't vote. In a previous life, knew some Cobol and Pascal and slightly less Fortran. Shows how obsolete things can get. I'm from another generation guys...

Those languages are still well and alive although I don't think they qualify as "Programming language of the year". At least not this year.

That's a BIG assumption.

rarsa, thanks for the clarification. I know those languages are still alive but I was beginning to feel old!
