Programming Language of the Year


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

2019 was my year of Go and Perl. Counting my newly started projects, Perl wins this one this time.

I had to vote C++ but I had a good time messing around with R for fun.

Maybe Elixir would just fall under erlang here... would it be more like a specialized dialect of erlang for building apps on the VM, rather than another language for the list?

I was finally ready to vote for Typescript (after thinking on this for a LONG time), and it's not one of the choices!

If python is considered a programming language then I think bash should be too. It's a shell but also a programming language with it, and most useful. Used every day.

So I vote for bash, awk, python, C. I don't have anything against perl, don't know it.

I would like to see a choice award next year for the most used, handiest python modules. Choices could be PyQt5, gobject, lxml, urllib, requests, selenium, soup, xlib, simplejson, html5-parser etc.

And that would only be interesting if one uses python I guess.

Perl it is! While not as trendy, it continues to be insanely useful.

I voted Perl (well, of course) but where is Raku (formarly known as perl6)?

The more I (have to) work with Python, the more I hate it. Never seen so many backward incompatability problems (which are the problems I get to fix).

You must be speaking about python2 - python3. They are not the same.

I laughed when I read that. 'Backwards compatible' and python are not synonyms. Keep up or your scripts stop working.

I don't hate it, just got used to it I guess.

Hello, FYI - my vote would be for Eiffel (https://www.eiffel.org/) if it were in the list. Best wishes, Aaron
