Which Programming Language Is Most Popular – The Final Answer? – Slashdot

Following a common technique among political pollsters, a technology columnist combined the results from various measures of programming language popularity for a more definitive answer about the most important languages to study. He used IEEE Spectrum’s interactive list of the top programming languages, which lets you adjust the weight given to the number of job listings and number or open source projects, then combined it with the TIOBE Index (which is based on search engine results), and the PYPL Index, which checks the number of tutorials for each programming language on Google.The results? “The top cluster contains Java, C, Python, and C++. Without a doubt, you should attain familiarity with these four languages.” He points out they’re not tied to a specific programming platform, unlike languages in the second cluster — JavaScript, C#, PHP, and Swift — while the last two languages in the top 10 were Objective-C and R. “The C-family of languages still dominates. Java, C++, C, C#, and even Objective-C are all C-based languages. If you’re only going to learn one language, you should pick one of those.” But his ultimate advice is to “learn multiple languages and multiple frameworks… Programming is not just an intellectual exercise. You have to actually make stuff.”

Skjult katastroferegnskab for Amager Bakke: Negativ egenkapital på 1,5 mia. kr. – Erhverv – FINANS

Problemerne på hovedstadens nye affaldsanlæg Amager Bakke har ført til, at selskabet bag prestigeanlægget har bogført en negativ egenkapital på 1,5 mia. kr. Det fremgår af et hidtil skjult årsregnskab for 2015, som Finans har fået aktindsigt i.

Et vellykket matematikdrama – men ikke i danske biografer | Ingeniøren

Hos filmdistributionsselskabet SF Studios mener man åbenbart ikke, at der er et biografmarked for en film om den indiske matematiker Ramanujan, selv om hovedrollerne er besat af store stjerner som Dev Patel og Jeremy Irons.Oprindelig var filmen ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’ sat til at have dansk biografpremiere i juli. Først blev premieren udskudt, nu er den helt afblæst, og filmen udkommer i Danmark ‘kun’ på dvd og digitalt, hvilket sker 8. december, fortæller SF Studios.
