August Highlights

The Top 5 remained exactly the same in August as it was in July with React on top followed by Python, AWS, Postgresql and JavaScript. This is React's fifteenth month in a row in the top spot. Though React has slid back in terms of share over the last quarter after peaking in June, it's still in a dominant position.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, both Node.js and golang are making their move, coming in just short of the Top 5. Node.js has one previous top 5 and is trying to get back there while golang is looking for its first Top 5 finish.

Overall, August had its best month ever in terms of posting count, up 18% over both July and last August. This will be an interesting trends to watch going into the Fall.
