10 most popular programming languages in the world, according to code platform GitHub
More than 40 million developers share their software on the GitHub code platform. Professional programmers work together on projects, but students, hobbyists, and other code knockers can also be found on the open-source platform. Here is the 10 most popular programming languages in the world, according to code platform GitHub.
Microsoft acquired GitHub last year for 6.5 billion euros. With this, the software giant hopes to attract more developers in the battle with Amazon and Google for the cloud. But GitHub must remain independent and neutral, both companies emphasize.
Founded in 2008, GitHub is one of the largest developer platforms globally, so it’s a good indicator of which programming languages are popular. The company does this in its annual report, The State of the Octoverse.
The new edition came out on November 7. Time to see which trends there are in the field of development.Here are some popular programming languages are now trending globally, according to GitHub:

The C ++ programming language is based on C and dates back to 1979. The Danish computer scientist Bjarne Stroustrup developed the language during his Ph.D. research to add extra functionalities to C. Today, the rather complicated C ++ is still widely used.
For example, the Windows operating system is written in the language, and massive 3D games are also written in this programming language.
5. C #

Microsoft developed this language, pronounced ‘C-sharp.’ It rivals even more popular Java and is mainly used by developers, of business software, mobile apps, and games.

PHP stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. (Yes, the P really stands for PHP!) It is actually not a programming language, but a scripting language intended to generate dynamic web pages on web servers. Databases can also handle PHP well.

Sun Microsystems developed Java in the early 1990s, which was later acquired by Oracle. Companies like Twitter and Netflix use this cross-platform language, which is also the most common way to build Android apps. Java is similar to C ++ and C #.
