Java remains at top 3 most popular programming languages according to the popularity index PYPL (PopularitY of Programming Language), available on GitHub. The programming language, the 25th anniversary of which was last year, remains №2 in TIOBE’s index with 11.17%, tightly following C++ (11.62%) and outrunning Python (10.95%).
However, what’s more interesting is that the search of Java developers is growing. The percentage of job advertisements has increased with 3% in the first six months of this year.
According to surveys, by the end of 2024, 63.1% of the overall number of developers, which is supposed to reach 28.7 million of people, will be using Java, together with Python, HTML/CSS, as well as SQL. This means that there will be more than 18.1 million of programmers. A reason for this is the fact that tech giants, such as Oracle, Google, Amazon and Microsoft continue to use Java and invest in the development of the language.
