How Python Overthrow Java on Github
Python’s growth is driven by the increase of usage by data science professionals and many hobbyists.
The rankings were based on the number of unique code contributors to public and private repositories tagged to the approriate primary language.
Here are the rankings for the most-popular language in Github according to Github’s State of the Octoverse:
There are also other programming language who gains a lot of contributors in the past years. Github also stated that they “also saw trends toward statically typed languages focused on type safety and interoperability: the Rust, Kotlin, and TypeScript communities are still growing fast.” These programming language would be listed as the fastest growing language by Github and here are the list :
