The February Tiobe Programming Community index is out. Last month’s showed ColdFusion at 16 and this month it is at 18. This does NOT appear to be because CF’s popularity is dropping (last Feb CF was at #30), but rather there are a couple other languages that are a bit more popular right now. What I don’t get is Visual FoxPro. It is #16 for Feb…are there really that many people out there using it? If so, why? It’s also interesting to note that C, PHP, Perl, and Python are all decreasing. Java is still #1, while VB and C# show continued growth.If you are wondering how Tiobe makes this index, they’ve now got a separate definition page. This is NOT a market share analysis, but it shows how much activity there is for a specific language on the net, including websites, blogs, newsgroups, products, mailing list archives, etc..
