Python is again the Top Programming Language of the Year

TIOBE is one of the leading trackers of language popularity.

Python has won the prestigious TIOBE Programming Language of the Year award for the second time in a row.

Python opened at the third position of the TIOBE index at the start of 2021 but left both C and Java behind to take the top position later. Currently, Python is more than 1 percent ahead of the rest.

According to TIOBE Python has the capability to become the ‘de facto’ standard programming language.

The TIOBE award is given to the programming language which has gained the highest increase in ratings in a year. Python surpassed the popularity of C last month.
