2017 Top Programming Language

Python takes the lead again for being the top programming language. It has been ranked top by IEEE Spectrum. Python continues to be on the higher end trajectory on Google Trends.


Even though on GitHub JavaScript leads the way and Python follows up on number second; I believe Python is still the lead as anyone and everyone on web somehow works with JavaScript.


When comparing to Google Trends Python leads in Web Search as well as on YouTube videos search. There are more people searching for Python then any other programming language.


If you are planning to create a tutorial for YouTube and don’t know which programming language to choose, I would suggest to go with Python.

Python is also leading the way in Machine Learning and Neural Network Learning languages. Everyone likes to throw in the words like Big Data, AI, and machine Learning, but what they all have in common is Python; where majority of the developers or API documentation is being written in Python.
