I’m going to make a rather bold claim here. I will claim that the
percentage breakdown of programming jobs by language is for all
practical purposes equal to the percentage breakdown of lines of legacy
code written in those languages that needs to be maintained. In short,
it has nothing to do with the quality of the language, the suitability
of the language for the software in question, whether the language is
“powerful” or “hot” or “productive”, or any factors dealing with the
creation of new software.
Actually, those just a simple search criteria by me.
I original put C, C++, Java, Ruby,… C is extremely high, then I
realized C was also an English letter. I added programmer to make the
search more specific. Then C dropped down from C++. You can search
whatever key word combination you like.
I believe the indeed.com’s searching criteria are simplely from job
posts from Internet, that is all.
It reflects more of past and current job market, not future ones…
