InformationWeek publishes a list of the most in-demand programming languages. The lineup of top coding languages includes a lot of familiar names, but the order of importance has changed a bit since over the last year. Many different organizations publish lists of popular programming languages, but they calculate that popularity in different ways. For example, some take surveys of developers and ask them which languages they like best. Others analyze job postings to see which skills employees are looking for, and still others count the number of web searches for different languages. The InformationWeek list draws on several lists compiled by other organizations to determine which languages are currently the most relevant to enterprise IT.
