Programming Language Popularity – Part Twelve

leave a comment »

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

"implemented in <lang>"
"written in <lang>"
"developed in <lang>"
"programmed in <lang>"

 
See Part Eleven for prior results.

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