Swift returns to the Top 10 programming languages

At the beginning of last year, we talked here about how the Swift he had quickly climbed a mountain and won a place in the sun among the 10 most popular programming languages ​​in the world according to the TIOBE index. From then until now, the language of the Apple fell some positions in the ranking (which usually has many changes in its positions below the Top 5) and reached 16th place last October, but now she is back in the top 10.

See how was the most recent survey for the current month:

TIOBE index with most used programming languages, October 2018

THE Java remains the most popular language in the world and, along with Ç, runner-up, has a considerable advantage over the rest – we are talking about usage rates of 17.8% and 15.4% in relation to the world’s developers. For comparison, the third place, the C ++, has a rate of 7.6%; Swift, which is in tenth place, 1.5%.

In other words, it is still possible to grow a lot – and that is certainly the intention of Apple, which has been doing a very interesting job of spreading the language especially with children and young people, with the Swift Playgrounds application. Will we still see the creation of the Apple occupying the podium? We will have to wait and see.
