Did you really mean Java?

1 minute read

A friend of mine forwarded me this article from eWeek. In summary it basically summarizes findings from Evans Data that states:


"As expected, developers are finally leaving VB6 and earlier versions; they’re also leaving VB.NET; which is down by 26 percent. This means Java now holds the market penetration lead at 45 percent, followed by C/C++ at 40 percent, and C# at 32 percent."


Now granted that I am extremely biased, but I find these results pretty surprising. My own personal market experience tells me that both Java and C++ are declining in use. I’m also not certain a sampling of 430 people is enough to make these kinds of statements (but I’m no statistician either).
