Job postings for the top five programming languages have shrunk in both absolute and relative terms according to the job trends tool on indeed.com. Stephen O’Grady from Redmonk, an analyst firm, finds the top programming languages every quarter using a methodology developed originally by Dataists. O’Grady counts the number of Github and StackOverflow projects for each programming language and then ranks the totals.
