SlashData ranked Python the second-most-popular language with 9 million developers, having gained 2.2 million over the past year due to machine learning, data science, and Internet of Things applications.
Anaconda CEO Peter Wang said it was "kind of a miracle that Python is even on the radar, much less ranked in the top three languages," considering its low uptake for mobile and app development.
Java achieved third place in the ranking with 8.2 million active developers (adding 1.6 million since mid-2017). Oracle says Java is still used by more than 69% of full-time developers globally, with 51 billion active Java Virtual Machines deployed.
