Java is Back at Number One


News: Java is Back at Number One

  1. Java is Back at Number One (3 messages)

    After falling to second place for a tad, Java is back at the top of the popularity list.

    TIOBE Programming Community Index for June 2010

    Java has been really taking its lumps lately, and the move to second place came at a particularly bad time, as the Sun/Oracle acquisition just completed, and as we all recall, James Gosling exited Oracle. So, when Java moved out of first spot, it felt almost like being kicked while we were down.

    I'm not sure what we really learn from this survey, but it does feel good to be back in first again.

    The value of Java is in what we can all accomplish with it, and the network effect of so many of us working cooperatively and competitively with it. The richness of the language, infrastructure, utilities, frameworks, tooling and applications built in Java make it possible for us to deliver incredible value to our customers and end users .. and that hasn't diminished with the Sun acquisition.

    Here's to many more good years .. and for a good laugh, see:
