Python is on its way to become the top programming language of 2019

The TIOBE Index for December 2019 reaffirms the status quo. Java, C, Python, C++, and C# are all doing well, with no major changes in their ranking. As predictions for 2020 roll in, one language, in particular, has been receiving a lot of attention. While Kotlin is not in the top 10 (or even the top 20) on the TIOBE Index’s rankings, it should be in every mobile dev’s toolkit.
