This rank is biased.
Puptets and toys languages will not help on DevOps success.

how about Python
Good article!  I am more on the dev side of devops but still have significant involvement in both.  I agree with what you said but would like to add Python to the list.  I've been using it for less than a year but find it to be a general purpose tool that I can use for almost anything.  And it's fun :)

Assembler may be the next best thing
"C is the next best thing to assembler," and when it comes to devops for the Internet of things, assembler may be the best thing, period. According to TIOBE Programming Community Index, more Internet of Things developers are using assembler than any other language. http://www.tiobe.com/tiobe_index?page=index Assembler runs thousands of small devices. "If performance is key, nobody can beat assembly code," the Index stated in its summary of July 2016 report. Assembler re-entered the top 10 in the report.

comment om app development
There have been a number of comments in the trade press about technologies that should disappear or languages should be learned, and so on.There are two aspects that are seldom discussed: long-term maintainability and validation/verification, particularly in those applications where safety is involved.

Nonsense...
InformationWeek of all pubs should know better than to perpetuate click-bait style journalism.  This is hardly any different from "See what these child stars look like today (Number 6 is shocking!)".  I mean really, this article had no purpose other than to generate clicks -- nothing new or useful at all.  Two technical comments: (1) Powershell, Perl and C make the list and Python doesn't?  Seriously?  (2) Puppet is a language?  Really? 

InformationWeek, if you insist on publishing like this, get one of your interns to do a proper job of it.

DevOps in the wild
Based on my current work with a small startup (all Macs in the office, all Linux servers in the cloud, Ruby on Rails apps with iOS and Android clients):

I use bash, Ruby (rake, Chef, Capistrano), JavaScript (for AWS Lambda functions), and the AWS CLI. (Our data science people use Python for utility stuff, but I rarely need to touch that.)

That totally covers provisioning and deployment.
