For the first time in 20 years, Python becomes the leader of programming languages, beating C and proclaiming itself as the most popular today. This data comes from the index of the TIOBE programming community , a company specialized in evaluating and measuring software. Specifically, TIOBE measures the number of searches retrieved on the web and in search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo !, among others.
According to TIOBE, it is not that Python gained more popularity in October 2021. Rather, the other programming languages have received fewer searches lately, an event from which Python was exempted. The reason why this language, despite being more than 30 years old, remains so current in the world of computing is because it is quite friendly and easy to learn, read and write, so it is an excellent tool to start your career as a programmer.
