The TIOBE Index assesses the popularity of programming languages ​​by counting results containing the name of the search language in Google, Wikipedia, YouTube and other popular sites.

The index is calculated monthly, and the April ranking marked the unexpected return of the Fortran programming language to the top 20 list. Fortran appeared back in 1957. A year ago, this language was ranked 34, but its popularity continues to grow. Objective-C has finally dropped out of the top 20. This is not surprising given that Apple announced Swift as a replacement back in 2014.
