In cooperation with computational journalist Nick Diakopoulos, IEEE Spectrum has released its second annual ranking of programming languages.
Forty-eight languages were included this year and are ranked based on weighting and combining 12 metrics from 10 data sources, including the IEEE Xplore digital library and Github. The rankings are weighted to broadly represent the interests of IEEE's members, but users can apply filters to tailor the rankings to their specific situation using the Top Programming Languages Web app.
The 2015 rankings saw the addition of seven languages, including Apple's Swift and Nvidia's Cuda, and the removal of ASP.NET, which IEEE Spectrum determined did not meet its definition of a programming language.
