C#, TypeScript Crack Top 10 in 2022 IEEE Programming Language Ranking
IEEE published its ninth annual ranking of top programming languages, wherein Microsoft's C# and TypeScript both rank in the top 10.
The organization uses multiple methods and sources -- which seem to change often -- to estimate the relative popularity of different languages.
Some might argue adoption grew enough years earlier, as TypeScript has shined in multiple reports, even being noted for an explosion in job listings this week by career marketplace Dice. In fact, in Stack Overflow's big survey this year, TypeScript vaulted ahead of Java to crack the top 5 ranking. Even back in 2019, analyst firm RedMonk, which had said TypeScript was exploding in relation to other languages, ranked it in the top 10.
C#, meanwhile, ranked fourth in the overall standings for 2022 while falling to fifth in the "jobs" slice and sixth in the "trending" ladder. TypeScript actually moved up to ninth in the jobs ranking (still in stark contrast to the Dice report) but fell well back to No. 16 among trending languages.
