"After more than 4 years C is back at position number 1 in the
TIOBE index. The scores for C have been pretty constant through the
years, varying between the 15% and 20% market share for almost 10
years. So the main reason for C's number 1 position is not C's
uprise, but the decline of its competitor Java. Java has a
long-term downward trend. It is losing ground to other languages
running on the JVM. An example of such a language is JavaFX script
that is now approaching the top 20.
"The TIOBE Programming Community index gives an indication of
the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once
a month. The ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers
world-wide, courses and third party vendors. The popular search
engines Google, MSN, Yahoo!, Wikipedia and YouTube are used to
calculate the ratings. Observe that the TIOBE index is not about
the best programming language or the language in which most lines
of code have been written."
