Can Julia Programming Language Become as Popular as Python, R?

Each month, the TIOBE Index makes an attempt to rank the world’s hottest programming languages. The same old suspects at all times dominate the very prime of the checklist—Java, JavaScript, Python, and so forth—with little change from month to month. Additional down the rankings is the place issues get fascinating.

This time round, it appears the Julia programming language is creeping ever nearer to TIOBE’s prime 20 languages. Utilized in information analytics and scientific computation, Julia clearly has its adherents, who typically cite its velocity and different options pretty much as good causes to be taught it.  

“Julia beats Matlab as a result of it’s way more fashionable and it may be used freed from cost,” reads TIOBE’s notice accompanying the newest information. “Moreover, Julia beats Python and R as a result of it’s a lot sooner. Since there’s a large demand within the quantity crunching and modeling area, Julia has a critical probability to enter the highest 20 within the close to future. Notice that the language Rust has additionally been knocking on the highest 20 door for fairly a while, however didn’t succeed thus far. Time will inform whether or not Julia will endure the identical destiny.”

To generate its month-to-month rankings, TIOBE leverages information from quite a lot of aggregators and serps, together with Google, Wikipedia, YouTube, and Amazon. For a language to rank, it have to be Turing full, have its personal Wikipedia entry, and earn greater than 5,000 hits for +”<language> programming” on Google. Whereas that’s not essentially the most scientific methodology of figuring out a language’s “recognition,” it’s a great way to measure which of them are constructing (or sustaining) some momentum amongst technologists.

Created at MIT in 2012, Julia hit its model 1.0 milestone in 2018. “The discharge of Julia 1.0 indicators that Julia is now prepared to vary the technical world by combining the high-level productiveness and ease of use of Python and R with the lightning-fast velocity of C++,” MIT professor Alan Edelman instructed MIT’s information portal on the time. Corporations starting from Capital One to Disney and Amazon have utilized Julia in data-related operations, however the language nonetheless lags the likes of Python in terms of normal adoption. Maybe that can change in coming years.
