IBuildings Blog:
PHP enters top 3 of most popular programming languages
September 21, 2009 @ 07:57:26

On the IBuildings bog today Ivo Jansch looks at a new step in PHP's evolution - its jump up into the top three on the TIOBE programming index (language popularity):

In their latest analysis PHP has entered the top 3 of most popular programming languages, and that is something that both makes us proud and provides further proof that PHP is still growing and here to stay. [...] What makes PHP's number 3 position remarkable is that the numbers 1 and 2 are very much general purpose languages. Java and C are pretty much used from anywhere from low level processes to desktop applications.

Some of the other languages in their top ten (according to their indexing tools) include Perl, Python, Ruby and Javascript.
