    I just watched a little more and I can say with conviction that it is fiction.

    You can even tell where he pulled those number from. I hope he remembered to wash his hands afterward.

    Where did he pull them from?

    I expect that ANY such thing would necessarily have to be full of assumptions. It didn't look like fiction, to me, just an interpretation of data that, itself, is virtually certain to have flaws.

    Funny how this video is raking up views without direct links to sources.

    Egos are exploding!

    It does say where they got the data from in the description

    from GitHub repositories access frequency. For historical ranking I've used aggregation of multiple national surveys to establish several data points, plus a world wide publications rate of occurrence. In this ranking popularity is defined by percentage of programmers with either proficiency in specific language or currently learning/mastering one. Y axis a relative value to define ranking popularity between all other items.
    Have fun!
    That sounds like a flawed model to me but whatever who cares really.

    The only thing that i found surprising is how popular it says Ada was, but then i checked up and it was used heavily in the US military which was pretty active in the 80's so who knows.
