Swift enters TIOBE index

Swift, new programming language from Apple entered ‘TIOBE Index’, a measure to track popularity of programming languages, for first time at position 16.

‘C’ tops the list as all time favourite, followed by Java, Objective C, C++ and C#. When ‘Go’ debut few years ago, it had similar position as ‘Swift’ but later fall behind other languages. ‘Swift’ is in little advantageous situation as it is aimed very specifically towards millions of iOS, Mac OS developers, hopefully it should not face similar fate as ‘Go’. Right now ‘Go’ is at 30 behind Pascal, COBOL. In order to try ‘Swift’, XCode 6 is required, which is in Beta as of today.
