GitHub: Python among top programming languages

Results of the annual State of the Octoverse report

Octoverse-2018GitHub has released its annual “State of the Octoverse” report. As the world’s biggest host of source code with more than 96 million repositories and a community of 31 million software developers around the world, GitHub provides valuable insights into the projects and technologies shaping today’s software.

VisoTech’s Periotheus Suite relies primarily on the Python programming language, which is heavily used in algorithmic trading and quantitative finance applications. The study found Python to be the third most popular language, behind JavaScript and Java.

Python is also popular for machine learning and data analytics. The massive growth of these technologies makes it no big surprise that the fastest growing open source projects on GitHub include:

  • TensorFlow: a machine learning library first developed by Google
  • Spyder: a Python-based environment for scientific data analysis
  • PyTorch: a Python-based deep learning platform
