AprilPYPL programming language rankingsandHacker News recruitment trendsIt's already out of the oven. The data for the Hacker News recruitment trend is collected by the Hacker News news station, which focuses not only on programming language trends, but also on the trend of top skills required by the company, including frameworks, libraries, and so on.

PYPL generates data by analyzing the frequency of Google search language tutorials, that is, the higher the search frequency of a language on the Google, the more popular the language is.

In the April figures, the two charts showed that Python was the fastest growing language, and popularity was among the best.

Kotlin has made great progress in the PYPL rankings, but it rarely shows up in the recruitment trend of Hacker News.

Hacker News recruitment trends

According to the recruitment trend ranking of Hacker News, companies are becoming more and more interested in Python skills, followed by JavaScript and Golang. The most interesting thing is that Golang seems to have gone beyond the popularity of Java in a certain period, but this trend is not stable.


In addition, the company's demand for JavaScript seems to have been higher than that of Java.



PYPL focuses on the popularity of programming languages. Although the overall learning trend of Java has declined slightly compared with last year's index results, Java is still the most popular language. Python has grown by a huge increase of 5.2% over JavaScript, making it the most popular language among developers.


Python's growth in popularity has almost touched Java, and the gap between them is only 0.57%.

Unlike the recruitment trend of Hacker News, Kotlin is one of the fastest growing languages in this month in PYPL, ranking 6 in 16.

general comparison

When we compare the two ranking systems, we can clearly see that Python is becoming very important. Whether it is recruitment needs or Google search tutorial, Python is placed in the forefront of language ranking.

There are some differences between Go and Kotlin in the two ranking systems. As shown above, Kotlin is nowhere to be seen in the Hacker News recruitment trend list, while the PYPL programming language index list shows that Kotlin is one of the fastest growing languages. Similarly, according to the recruitment trend ranking of Hacker News, the trend of Golang seems to be on the rise, while the PYPL programming language index shows that Golang is quite static.
