Python is once again the top programming language after losing to TypeScript the last two months. Previous to the last two months' defeat, Python had been the top programming language for six years. Will it stay on top again, or will this battle between Python and TypeScript go back and forth into the future?
For May, at the top of the rankings, everything stayed pretty much the same as it was in April. Remote hiring is still very popular, with 75% of postings including it. On the techonology front, React is still the only tech term in the top 5, with about 26% of postings including it.
TypeScript has dethroned Python. For the first time in over six years, there is a new #1 programming language in the rankings with TypeScript jumping ahead of Python. Python has had a remarkable run, taking the top spot among programming languages since March, 2016. TypeScript steps up to the top spot in the same year it turns ten years old.
