Java has long been one of the most widely used programming languages among developers in a special form of a love-hate relationship. However, those times are long gone. This is also shown by the latest statistics from GitHub.
Microsoft’s developer platform houses by far the largest number of code projects and thus paints a very clear picture of the relationships between programming languages. The data of this year confirmed the trend of the previous year, according to which Python has now stably overtaken Java and has settled more firmly in second place.

GitHub itself is still doing very well. When Microsoft took over the platform, there was a huge outcry and numerous announcements that projects and developers wanted to look for alternatives – but that rarely happened in practice. Rather, Microsoft was able to successfully expand GitHub and today there are 56 million registered developers who made around 1.9 billion contributions to over 60 million software projects last year. 72 percent of the 50 largest companies in the world also use the platform for their internal work.
