Microsoft C# named programming language of 2012

Sophie Curtis | Jan. 7, 2013
Microsoft's C# has been crowned the number one programming language of the year by the PopularitY of Programming Language (PYPL) index.

"TIOBE is a lagging indicator. Among other things, it counts the number of web pages with the language name. Objective-C programming has over 28 million pages, while C programming has only 11 million. This explains why Objective-C has a high TIOBE ranking," stated a post on the PYPL web page.

"But who is reading those Objective-C web pages? Hardly anyone, according to Google Trends data. Objective C tutorial are searched 6 times less than Javascript tutorial. Javascript has a 7.9% share of search, so Objective-C has a share of 1.3%."

TIOBE will announce its own programming language of the year 2012 later this month.
