Developers No Longer Prefer JavaScript As Their Favorite Programming Language

According to a recent survey, JavaScript is no longer the world’s most widely used programming language.

According to CircleCI’s 2022 State of Software Delivery report, TypeScript has now surpassed JavaScript to capture the top spot, unseating one of the most recognized names in the business.

According to the company, this is probably because of its developer-friendly features, which include those that let them submit working code more frequently and catch minor issues locally than JavaScript does.

The report, which ranks Python at fourth, claims that from 2019 to 2021, only Python’s popularity stayed constant. HTML, Java, and PHP are among the top 10 languages.

Further down the list, HashiCorp (HCL) has made it into the top 10, ranking a solid ninth, while also setting the standard for HTML and Swift, which are one and two places below it, respectively.

According to CircleCI VP of Platform Michael Stahnke, “Elite software delivery teams are adopting developer-friendly tools and practices that allow them to automate, scale, and successfully embrace change when necessary.”

“High performers are gravitating toward tools that encourage collaboration, repeatability, and productivity.”

The investigation of other aspects of programmers’ workflow led to the discovery of four crucial benchmarks that characterize some of the most effective engineering teams.

They include workflow execution times of five to ten minutes on average, corrections for unsuccessful runs made within an hour, a success rate of at least 90% for the application’s default branch, and regular deployment in accordance with business needs at the very least once per day.
