Language tends on Github for 2015

Github has posted an article on the popularity tends for languages on Github since 2008:

Whats most interesting is that PHP has remained consistent throughout the chart no movement in either direction. As with all languages users come and go but not all users are using Github still I am surprised it’s so steady. I’m not surprised in the increase of Java with the popularity of Android. Also no suprise with JavaScript either that’s to be expected. There are new frameworks and JS based tools being released at an increasingly fast pace.

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
