Programming Language of the Year


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

Python, not because it is the most wonderful, but because I started to understand it this year, where I can write scripts without my head stuck in the manuals.

In Summer, I would have chosen Perl. But I have been enjoying Rust a lot lately...
I wonder how this will end.

COBOL, for the fact that many US government computer systems still use it and if not for the pandemic might of gone limping along for awhile longer. Or for the fact that earlier in the year any one with experience were in such high demand.

While I'm still a Python guy, it's hard to understate how good of a language Golang is and this is the first year I've seriously used it; so it gets my vote.

Perl for me

Well, I would kinda like to say Common Lips, but I haven't started actually learning it yet and I just love Perl, so... Eheh....

Perl all the way for almost anything/everything wherever possible.
I miss Raku in the list (formerly known as perl6). It is a great language, which I will use more actively if it gains performance

Actually actively working on that with the CORE team.
I just answer to get the confusion out of the way: Perl5 will keep the "Perl" name and it is likely that the next generation of perl5 will be perl7.
Perl6 has been renamed to Raku. Main reason was marketing. People did expect Perl6 to be the next Perl5 and it proved not to be. Raku is a completely different language, but with the perl5 "There is more than one way to do it" spirit kept in place.
Raku has ***ALL*** the nice features of other modern languages that were (very) hard to implement in perl5: parallel programming, threading done right, promises, extremely good exception handling and many many more goodies.
As a language, I think that Raku is better than all other (scripting) languages in use. Seriously. My only reason not to use it in production processes yet, is that higly optimized modules like CSV_XS and DBI are not up to speed in Raku (yet).

I just hope that migrating my old/existing Perl 5 codebase (involving quite some CPAN) won’t require too much work. Life is short.

Hard to define it "of the Year" but the ol' friend Pascal (object pascal, looking at freepascal) deserves at least a nomination,maybe because it is quite superior at many others as clarity at lest
