The annual IEEE Spectrum programming language Ranking feast again, take a look at this year's July 26 release of the top ten list. This chart has been for three years. IEEE Spectrum is a comprehensive ranking from 10 important data sources, such as IEEE Xplore, GitHub, CareerBuilder, etc., they are given 48 languages are arranged at different angles according to the data source. Adjustment of different weights, you can get different results will be sorted. Users can even according to their own situation, adjust the weights to give the corresponding results will be sorted.

Let's compare last year and this year's top ten list (on the left in 2016, the right of 2015), a look at the trend this year.
Overall, just before 10, the rising language: C, Python, R and Go.
Throughout the 48 kinds of language development momentum after another, involved in the production of charts Nicholas Diakopoulos said the author, and large data-related language common on the rise, such as Go, Julia, R, Scala even Python.
Competition is the list of the top ten most intense. Go Google's first 19 years ago, 13 last year, and this year is former squeeze 10, which shows its growing influence. Diakopoulos analysts say, with the rapid increase in the usage of Go Github rises about. According to statistics, in 2016 Github to Go as the main language of the original warehouse is four times the number in 2014, and the other people on the Reddit discussion of Go is also more relevant now than in 2014 post Go tripled.
Dedicated to the R statistical language analysis ranking soared from 14 in the first 13 to 15 years, the first six, and then to this year's first five. But the R language the most important point is the significant increase in the number of times it is mentioned in the academic research papers. IEEE Xplore is a collection of millions of academic, industry standards and monographs authority database, but also to IEEE Xplore this list of data sources to greater weight. Data show that in 2015 only 39 IEEE Xplore paper discusses the R language, this year the number reached 244 related papers.
The Scala section 18 from the previous year rose to 15 this year, Julia jumped from 40 last year to 33 this year.
In weight recruitment market, although Java and Python have been living dominance in the talent market, but employers are showing interest Diakopoulos R and Scala significantly on the rise. R and Scala related work listed on job sites CareerBuilder and Dice 2014 there were only 136, but in 2016 that number has quadrupled, reaching 631.
List to a certain extent reflects the academic and market trends, readers can according to their actual situation with reference to plan their academic and career development.
