Voted C++ for personal reference and choice and because it keeps being widely used.
I would considered also PHP and Java or JavaScript... heh

I voted Python. Python 3's been really exciting as of late, and it has an unusually excellent community.

I set on NASM, a really great assembler and if it gets a markup language like c, c++, that you can write commands, modules, ... the hard coded stuff with it. And on the other hand your would be flexible like with c, c++, then it would be somehow awesome.
I think that such a tool is required for programming self thinking (Brain-Cell-Programmed) mashines, too.

If I need anything more than a script, then awk would be my choice.

I almost feel like ES6 deserves its own category. I've been using ES6 on Node this year, and it is sooo much nicer than JS (ES5) in the browser. JavaScript is fun again. (But you could probably make the same arguments for CoffeeScript and TypeScript too.)

Seriously, if you use C or C++ you should be looking at D.

C++ has improved dramatically since C++11, but it fundamentally has too much baggage to compete.

My vote would go to Julia, because it is fast and it can use Fortran and Python libraries. But it's not on the list, so I picked Swift. I expect it to become very popular among app developers across all supported platforms, along with JavaScript, although I guess that Java will dominate that market for the next couple of years.

Voted for COBOL, usually it would have been c but I decided GnuCOBOL deserves a bit of recognition for their work over the years.

Also I have used it a bit starting with the newer version and it seems nice.
