Ruby is on 9th Position and C# on 8th as per Tiobe Index

Ruby is on 9th Position and C# on 8th as per Tiobe Index.

These are pleasing news to read that Ruby is jumping very fast.

http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html

Will Ruby Takeover the C# position soon…?

Since JRuby is not mentioned any where, i presume its not considered in
the Tiobe programming Index. With IronRuby the progress of Ruby shall be
more faster, and i can imagine, Ruby + IronRuby + Jruby ( Ruby Trio )
can progress to 5th or 6th position soon.

Currently php holds the 5th position and python is 6th. If Ruby cannot
beat PHP so soon, it can struggle for the 6th position with the new Ruby
Trio

After having a look at all 6 blogs by Codethinked ( Comparing C# with
IronRuby ) I am happy to see, how powerful IronRuby can be compared to
C#.

If you look at the ‘definition’ of Ruby for TIOBE it includes IronRUby
and JRuby:

TIOBE is a measure of popularity. It you look at jobs available for
the different languages on job aggregation sites then C# still hammers
RUby (and Python!).

Popularity (what people talk about) is different from what people use…

Another interesting language popularity site (with a wider range of
metrics than TIOBE) is:

http://www.langpop.com/

C# does very poorly on their metrics…

Thanks Michael for the information.

After having a look at the Defination page, i was surprised to see, that
Tiobe is considering IronRuby at this point. That’s an unfair practice,
since IronRuby is still in alpha stage and not yet available for
production stage.

After IronRuby 1.0, the scenario will change a lot.

Both Tiobe and Langpop search based on language, but they exclude the
term “.NET programming” which is a more general term that describes what
developers are used.

It also describes every page in or referencing a page on a ‘.NET’ domain
that uses the word programming…

If you redo the tests from langpop.com in this way, .NET comes out side
by side with Java.
