JavaScript Named Language of the Year

Tiobe has named JavaScript as the language of the year for 2014 because it was the biggest mover on their index, jumping from a 1.569 percent rating a year ago to a 3.274 percent rating now. “Swift and R appeared to be the main candidates for the title, but due to a deep fall of Objective-C this month, a lot of other languages took advantage of this and surpassed these two candidates at the last moment,” Tiobe said. Other big movers included PL/SQL and Perl.

The top of the chart looks like this for January:

  1. C (16.703 percent)
  2. Java (15.528 percent)
  3. Objective-C (6.953 percent)
  4. C++ (6.705 percent)
  5. C# (5.045 percent)
  6. PHP (3.784 percent)
  7. JavaScript (3.274)
  8. Python (2.613 percent)
  9. Perl (2.256 percent)
  10. PL/SQL (2.014 percent)
