C Declared Programming Language of the Year for 2017


The TIOBE Programming Community index, "an indicator of the popularity of programming languages", recently assessed the C programming language as 2017 programming language of the year. Previously, the C programming language had been declining in popularity since 2015.

The TIOBE index is determined monthly and is ranked according to the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors and search engines Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube and Baidu results.

One theory for the C language renewal is its popularity "in the growing manufacturing and machine industry (including the automotive market). " The most notable popular programming language contenders include Python (+1.21%) and Erlang (+0.98%). Other significant jumps in language popularity include, R (from 16 to 8), Erlang (from 44 to 23) and Kotlin (from 89 to 39).
