Tim O’Reilly predicts programming language popularity

Tim O’Reilly, the man who has made a fortune predicting computer technology trends, notes that the demand for technical books goes hand-in-hand with the usage of programming languages.

In the ever-popular O’Reilly Radar Blog, Tim opines on the emerging trends in programming languages, noting a decline in Java, C++ and PHP, with climbing interest in Ruby on Rails (ROR) and C#:

"Also worthy of note in these graphs is the long, slow decline of Java and C/C++, and the continuing rise in market share of C#...

PHP's fortunes reversed before book sales showed that web developers in search of rapid development languages moved over to RoR"

Steve Karam, an Oracle Certified Master, author and expert in web technologies, shares these predictions on programming languages for 2007 and the state of Ruby and Ruby On Rails (RoR):

"I should learn about more about Ruby, as that's the "hot language" on the market right now.  Ruby is a fork of PHP with some special features built in, and pretty rapid development, which is why it's popular right now. 

A lot of the people I work with, however, think that Ruby is going to fade at some point whereas PHP has and will not...I guess time will tell."
