Objective-C Surpasses ActionScript In Popularity

Published by at 2:29 am under Others

The TIOBE Programming Community Index gives an indication of the popularity of programming languages. The index for August 2009 has been released and Objective-C enters top 20 (at position 19), surpassing ActionScript (at position 22).

I have always found Objective-C a bizarre language, and there are probably many who will concur. Despite its strange syntax though, interest in the language (which presumably translate to adoption of the language) is apparently climbing fast (see the chart below), especially following the release of iPhone OS 3.0. This probably shouldn’t come as a surprise though, considering the ever increasing number of applications in the Apple App Store. With the growth in Objective-C developer base, it is also no surprise that iPhone, Mac sales continue to propel Apple forward (in my opinion no coincidental correlation here).
