The February TIOBE Index of the most common programming languages is out, and though the work heading on in the history of TIOBE’s calculations has changed, not a great deal has shifted in the way of rankings.

Python continues to sit atop the index, with C and Java specifically behind it. In Feb. 2021, these a few also occupied the leading spot, but with Python in the number 3 posture, C at prime, and Java in 2nd area.

Outside of the leading three, there hasn’t been significantly motion in the index, with positions four via eight unchanged from the same time last calendar year. Individuals slots are occupied, respectively, by C++, C#, Visual Primary, JavaScript and PHP. Positions nine and 10 swapped from Feb. 21 to now, with Assembly Language and SQL now occupying every single other’s positions.

The just one large transfer of note concerning Feb. 2021 and Feb. 2022 was with the Groovy programming language, an item-oriented language for Java. Over the study course of the 12 months, Groovy fell from 12th situation all the way to 20th, placing it perilously close to the “other programming languages” checklist.

TIOBE CEO Paul Jansen attributes Groovy’s decrease to the expansion in the CI/CD area. Groovy was the only language applied for producing scripts on Jenkins, which Jansen describes as obtaining been “the only actual participant in the CI/CD domain” early on. Now, with platforms that really don’t need Groovy, like GitHub, Azure DevOps and GitLab, Groovy is shedding its spot at the desk.

“Groovy could have grown more because it was the main script-based mostly option for Java jogging on the exact JVM. However, Kotlin is having about that posture suitable now, so I imagine Groovy will have a challenging time,” Jensen stated.

The TIOBE index may well not be total of surprises this month, but Jansen did have a lot to say about the index by itself this thirty day period, as this is the initial time it has been compiled employing Similarweb’s targeted traffic examination system rather of Alexa.

“We have employed Similarweb for the 1st time this thirty day period to pick lookup engines and fortunately, there are no major alterations in the index due to this swap. The only striking variance is that the prime 3 languages, Python, C, and Java, all acquired a lot more than 1 p.c in the rankings,” Jansen stated.

TIOBE determined to make the change this month soon after Amazon’s announcement in December 2021 that it was shutting the Alexa net position service down, powerful May perhaps 1, 2022, ending 25 decades of the software.

Jansen pointed out that not every single web page has been onboarded, but that the switch to Similarweb included a change to utilizing HtmlUnit, a non-GUI web browser with APIs that enable
