Programming Language of the Year


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

This year I am voting for C++. Not because it is the greatest thing. But because I learned to use it this year. Along with that, all of the toolkits and projects that are written in it. Qt$, Qt$Webengine, Qt$webkit, Qt$multimedia, Qt$networkauth, Qt$websockets, poppler, etc.

C would be my second vote, along with all the tools for it. Gtk3, Gtk2, webkit2gtk, poppler, cairo, etc.

Python and friends would get my 3rd vote this year.

To my own surprise, I wrote more C than Go (and almost as much as Rust) last year, so I'll vote C again...

C++ is always exciting, with every revision bringing big new features that were a decade in the pipeline, but the obvious choice this year is Rust.

If AWK is in, then is BASH also a programming language?

I'm sticking with C. I probably use more script code and therefore bash, but it is strictly interpretive. If I were writing script programs often, I'd use TCL with Tk graphics, but if I am writing programming code for anything other than a personal solution, I'd use C if I had the choice. My combination of code, script, and quick tools usually include these; occasionally I'll include yad to provide an input GUI for bash scripts.

Absolutely...regardless of awk or not.

In my opinion, it is not. (It would rather fit a Shell of the Year category.) While awk was made for scripting, bash just happens to have a scripting language built-in. And that would probably exceed this category - there is an enormous amount of shells with quite different languages.

Not a coder, but still a vote

I don't do much coding but every system hack, script or solution I build is in Python, so I'll vote Python.

I definitely agree with some of your points, however, I respectfully disagree with the idea that 'bash' isn't also a 'programming' language...insomuch as it is relatively unique compared to other languages and even other "interactive" shells. And, I supplement this *opinion* on a very wide body of work performed with bash in mind...and an equally robust suite of books/sites dedicated to bash "programming."

Along these same lines, I've met some incredibly capable "bash programmers" who permit the rest of us to hold our phone flashlights on during their presence...for which the rest of us repeat the Wayne's World mantra of "we're not worthy." In fact, I'd consider 'bash' to be a higher level language than C and C++.

Just my thoughts. Not meant to be critical of your opinion; just an alternate view.

Yes, bash (or shell) is a programming language. There is (for example) a calculator written in pure shell, posted here, at LQ.
Otherwise I would select shell and python
