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

http://www.tiobe.com/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++
