Languages over time

GitHub is a web-based repository that operates on the functionality of a 'Git,' which is strictly a command-line tool.

With 10 Million users as of today, the platform has become the primary source of housing open source software that is free of cost available to the world at large.

A look at the picture of programming trends on GitHub over recent years is actually a look at how the computer world is evolving.

Top 10 Programming Languages

Here are the Top 10 Programming Languages on GitHub today:
  1. JavaScript
  2. Java
  3. Ruby
  4. PHP
  5. Python
  6. CSS
  7. C++
  8. C#
  9. C
  10. HTML

Yes, Java programming language topped the race. There was a time when Java was most likely to be used by big banks and other enterprise companies that build very private stuff.

However, GitHub's data shows that Java grew more than any other programming language since 2008 and is being as a forefront of languages used to build open source software.

Java's rise is also due to growing Android popularity, as Google made Java the primary language for developing applications on Android smart devices.

Java is followed by Ruby, PHP, Python, and C#.

The rank is calculated by a GitHub project called Linguist, which listed languages by their adoption in public and private repositories, excluding forks.
