Python: the most used programming language

By the second quarter of 2020 the first three most popular programming languages are: Python, JavaScript and Java. Then there are C#, PHP, C++, C, R, Switft, Objective C and Kotlin.

But what is the Python and why is it so successful?

Python is a programming language first published almost 30 years ago, in 1991.
The program was developed by Guido Van Rossum, a Dutch computer scientist who graduated in 1982. Python’s design philosophy emphasizes the readability of code with its remarkable use of significant white spaces. Its linguistic constructs and object-oriented approach aim to help programmers write clear and logical code for small and large projects. Source Wikipedia .

The most used programming languages in the 60s and 70s

Fortran, a programming language born in 1957. is one of the first languages in the world. It was developed from the early 50s and published later in 1957. The strength of this program lies in its numerous application programs, function libraries. Among the other things Fortran is still today one of the most used programming languages despite being on the market for over 63 years.

Programming languates – Through the Years

In this infographic made by “The Software Guild” website, you can see the evolution of programming languages from the 1950s to the 2010s.

In fact, this visual map shows how programming languages are almost a genealogical hotel.
