Well, one website that tracks programming language usage is the TIOBE index.


It currently shows that Java is the most popular language.

However, it's hard to measure exactly, and some other methods of calculating might show a different language as more popular...

It might be! In my opinion, it is definitely a nice language to learn for people that are taking computer science classes for the first time.

I am not entirely sure but I think it's Java or c++
