TIOBE software index publishes the list of top programming languages each month. The latest list is dominated by C programming language. While some programming languages are most popular among developers, some are hated by them.
The programming language is immensely popular among developers across the world. While Java is a great programming language, some developers hate it because of their inability to understand the object-oriented programming (OOP) structures.
Java became dominant in the late 90s and maintained its crown as one of the most widely used programming languages. It strongly enforces OOP structures and forces developers to follow the paradigm.
Another popular language that holds among top ranks in TIOBE rankings. Since 1985, C++ has ranked in the top 10 annually. Despite the popularity, C++ garners hate in some areas. Linux creator, Linus Torvalds says, “In other words, the only way to do good, efficient, and system-level and portable C++ ends up to limit yourself to all the things that are basically available in C.”
Perl has always lacked the supporting programming community. It is one of the most hated programming languages. Perl has never been Abel to crack in the top 10 on TIOBE’s list. Most developers call it as ‘Write Only’ language.
