Programming Language Popularity – Part Eleven

leave a comment »

I made a number of Google searches of the forms below and summed the results:

"implemented in "
"written in "
"developed in "
"programmed in "

See Part Ten for prior results.

I’ve divided the table into sections based on percentage increases of more than 50% from one language to the next.
