Python remains undefeated in 2017, just edging out React. The margin of victory was just 2 posts, 184 - 182 and React was winning as of last week. Perhaps June will bring a new champion.
Python is holding off React as of today with 143 mentions to React's 141 in the April edition of Hacker News Hiring Trends. Even with Python's consistent dominance over the years, React, the relative newcomer is reaching new heights still, with nearly 20% of posting reach this month. But, watch out React fans, it's not all upside for React. Vue.js makes an entrace on list of the fastest rising technologies.
Python is the top programming language/technology mentioned in March's job postings. This is Python's fourth #1 finish in a row and 11th out of the last 12 months. Can anybody knock off Python?
2017 starts off where we spent most of 2016, with Python the most popular programming language.
These charts show what's popular and trending in programming languagues, frameworks and technologies used to develop modern software applications as indicated by Hacker News activity. Using the HN Search API and a dictionary of software terms, all of the the comments (job postings) in the "whoishiring" submissions from April 2011 to the latest month were processed to count the number of times each software term was mentioned.
