World’s top programming languages are all open source

IEEE does an annual ranking of top programming languages and the results are shared mid year with the general public. For the past many years, proprietary software is losing ground to open source driven software languages. And this year, all of the top ten languages have totally gone open source.

IEEE tracks 48 different languages using 12 distinct metrics with their unique weights applied. This creates a listing which looks for emerging languages, popularity, jobs available among other factors. This year, the list has some new entrants like Go and Swift with Python topping for the first time beating out old rivals like C and C++.
