Ruby is not a top language in 2021

Ruby is not a top language in 2021
Ruby is at 16th position by IEEE Spectrum 2021

I read from IEEE Spectrum, and I found out that Ruby is in the 16th position of language popularity.

I think Ruby lost a lot of positions when Python took over the Machine Learning space. Also, Ruby lost significant clout when JavaScript took over the crow for web app development, especially one-page apps.

Ruby on Rails is not slow compared to the frameworks used on JS-based tools, but the market has moved on.

Also, with the rise of native apps, Java and Swift increased in popularity.

The top 10 programming languages in 2021:

  1. Python
  2. Java
  3. C
  4. C++
  5. JavaScript
  6. C#
  7. R
  8. Go
  9. HTML
  10. Swift
