Growth of Programming Languages

TIOBE Language Ratings

Python showed the largest growth of any language and Javascript had a significant decline. Ruby now rates higher than Javascript. Out of the top 10, only Python, Objective C, and Java had positive deltas.

Python grew six times faster than Java, but Java still has twice the market share of Python.

PHP had the sharpest decline. Unless you have a legacy system, I don't understand why people would choose to use it. I'm surprised it is still in the top 10.
