Information about the popularity of computer languages isn't just of passing interest. It's important because it relates to job opportunities and also to the ability to contribute to open source software development. As usual GitHub's annual Octoverse Report brings up-to-date insights.
Let's look at the four keypoints identified in the Languages section of Octoverse 2022.
Rust, which was revealed most wanted language in the Stack Overflow Survey, again, saw a growth of over 50% on GitHub putting it in 2nd place in terms of growth.
The language that tops this table, with a growth rate of 56% is HCL (Hashicorp Configuration Language) which was also singled out in the DevOps report where it was described as a declarative configuration language used with HashiCorp’s cloud infrastructure automation tools, most notably Terraform.
This brings us to the final keypoint made about languages in the Octoverse Report - the trend towards Infrastructure as Code, IaC, which as we already have noted a couple of time recently is on the way up. This should come as no great surprise as everything is code.. everything.
