Julia Enters Top 50 Programming Languages

Language expected to rise through TIOBE Index in coming months


Julia, a numerical computing language, took its place among the top 50 computer programming languages in September 2016, according to the TIOBE Programming Community Index, an index of the world’s most popular programming languages:

Partners and users of Julia include Intel, The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Lincoln Laboratory at MIT, The Moore Foundation, and a number of private sector finance firms.

The TIOBE Programming Community Index is an indicator of the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once a month. The ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers worldwide, courses, and third-party vendors. Popular search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube, and Baidu are used to calculate the ratings.

“It was a matter of time until Julia would hit the top 50,” TIOBE reports. “This month it did so. The Julia programming language is meant for numerical computing. It combines functional programming paradigms with high speed. In other words, readable and stable code that performs. Chances are high that Julia will gain even more popularity [during] the next few months.”
