Dutch software house TIOBE (named for The Importance of Being Earnest, endearingly enough) calculates the relative popularity of various programming languages using Google, MSN Search and Yahoo! stats. Obviously it’s a rough-and-ready calculation, but I was interested to see that PHP is now ranked fourth (behind Java, C and C++), and that Ruby has cracked the top twenty for the first time. My hunch is that corporate dev shops are beginning to pick up lightweight, iterative programming practices like AJAX and Ruby-on-Rails.
