Programming Language of the Year


A newer category that's been extremely close the last few years.

After a few years mostly focused on web and database projects, I have returned to C++ in 2014.

Although it has its quirks - as do all programming languages - C/C++ remain the most useful and most useable for my money.

D has really grown to be worth a look now.

It's quite amazingly good, supplanting both C++ and Ruby as my favourite languages.

Like some of the other categories there is not a single answer I can select. C/C++ is a base for other languages so perhaps there should be a separate grouping for languages programmed using another one.

I had to cast my vote for the language I'm currently using most. This year, it's Python.

I voted for JavaScript not because I like it, but for its ubiquity and its enormous growth this year.

Rust will be the programming language 2015, when 1.0 is released.
2016 is still open
2017 next C++ standard, introducing (hopefully) concepts (light)
so there is obviously no need to have this poll every year

I'm curious, have those who voted C++ had a Good Look at what D is now? http://dlang.org/

Remember Andrei Alexandrescu, the guy who wrote that frighteningly clever "Modern C++ Design" book? Much of the scary clever magic behind Boost was inspired by/ kicked off by that.

Except Andrei seems to be unusual in the class of Genius coders...

He has stepped back from all that cleverness, and said, "It shouldn't have to be so hard" and started designing his own language.

And then he stepped one step further back and instead of writing yet another language, started contributing to Walter Bright's D language.

Result?

All that insane cleverness poured into making things simple, easy, Right.

Instead of brain twisting template meta-programming, Compile Time Function Evaluation.

Instead of STL iterators.... Ranges.

Oh my! Those things are my favourite example of achieving Power AND Simplicity by choosing the Right abstraction.

I vote for C

It is the closest language to the way machine works apart from ASM language.

That was become a sort of self fulfilling prophecy...

There was for a good few years a trend towards machines working the way C works!

(There was a small side step in the Arm world to "the machine working the way Java works" http://www.arm.com/products/processo...es/jazelle.php )

Except C is getting further and further away from how machines work these days....

These days things are dominated by....

* A very very steep cache heirachy.
* An ever growing number of cores.

yes, I followed D already from the very beginning.
it is an interesting language, but the code generation it has makes it more easy to write unmaintainable code than C++ and therefore only for generic freak like Alexandrescu acceptable ( I am just kidding, but not just)

one of the greatest mistake it made was to compare itself with C++ and marketing itself as a system language.
it should have come up as a better pyhton or so, would have made more sense somehow. (GC is still a problem, look at the D talks from the DLang conference, not even the D devs deny that in high performance parts you can not use the GC and there is also a project that trys to imporve GC , but therefor duppples memory consumption ...(

and an other thing is, bringing a language without tools support like ide support and debugger in nowadays only for a very view people interesting.
