Java continues to be ranked number one. C#, Python, PHP, Perl, and Ruby all enjoy higher rankings than they did this month one year ago. Visual Basic .NET is currently number 10. Should it fall lower, it will be the first time since the TIOBE Index was created that a BASIC language did not exist in the top 10.
