October Highlights

There is a new champ! Python takes the top spot this month, de-throning JavaScript, which has been on top all year. October saw a nice bounce in activity, of course falling on a Tuesday, rather than a weekend, will do that.

On the rising side, not much surprise to see Angular on top for the fifth month in a row, demonstrating its emergence in 2013 as a common skill. Although, its raw numbers this year are flat.


This chart represents trends in languagues, frameworks and technologies used to develop modern software applications as indicated by Hacker News activity. Using the HN Search API and a dictionary of software terms, all of the the comments (job postings) in the "whoishiring" submissions from April 2011 to October 2013 were processed to count the number of times each software term was mentioned.
