PHP – 4th Most Popular Programming Language

Just a quick post here.  I came across the Tiobe Software Index today which… well, I’ll let them explain it:

The TIOBE Programming Community index gives an indication of the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once a month. The ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors. The popular search engines Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and YouTube are used to calculate the ratings. Observe that the TIOBE index is not about the best programming language or the language in which most lines of code have been written.

And PHP is on their list at number 4!

Only following Java, C, and C++!

I thought it was pretty cool since I’m a big fan of php and php projects 🙂  So those of you out there who haven’t given PHP a shot yet, now would be a good time to check it out!
