In Decline: Mother of All Programming Languages

The Tiobe Index and the PYPL Index both demonstrate that C has dropped in fame from December 2015 to December 2016.

“The language was in a scope of 15%-20% for over 15 years and this year it all of a sudden began to endure,” said Tiobe.

Tiobe said C is “not a language that you consider while composing programs for prevalent fields, for example, portable applications or sites”.

“It is not developing that much and there is no huge organisation advancing the language,” it said.

The table beneath demonstrates the most prevalent programming languages on the planet, in view of the Tiobe and PYPL records, and their change from 2015 to 2016.
