Delphi/Object Pascal at #9 in Tiobe March 2017 index - Swift enters top 10
The March 2017 Tiobe programming language index report is out. Delphi/Object is at number nine in the report. Swift enters the top ten for the first time.
From the Tiobe index post:
- "This month Swift enters the
- top 10 for the first time. About 3 years ago Apple announced that it would replace its 'ancient' native mobile app development language Objective-C by its newborn language called Swift. The expectations were high right from the start, but adoption took off slowly. That is for good reasons by the way because the installed base of Objective-C code is quite large. New applications are written in Swift, whereas old apps that are written in Objective-C are not actively migrated to Swift. This is also what we observe at customer sites. Since Swift is mainly intended to write applications in Apple's ecosystem, it is expected that it won't rise much further."
Delphi moved from 11th to 9th. Swift moved from 14th to 10th. The March 2017 index's top five languages stayed the say from February 2017: 1) Java, 2) C, 3) C++, 4) C#, 5) Python.
