(Tech Mainstream) The TIOBE Index for September 2021 has been released. The monthly TIOBE Programming Community index determines programming languages popularity. The ratings originate from the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors. Search engines Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube and Baidu are used to formulate ratings. Last year, C++ was the "fastest growing language  at +1.48%. This year, Python has moved up the ladder according to the index:

"Python has never been so close to the number 1 position of the TIOBE index. It only needs to bridge 0.16% to surpass C. This might happen any time now. If Python becomes number 1, a new milestone has been reached in the TIOBE index. Only 2 other languages have ever been leading the pack so far, i.e. C and Java. Let's see what happens next month.

Other interesting moves this month are: Assembly gained 1 position from #9 to #8, Ruby gained 2 positions from #15 to #13, and Go went up even 4 positions from #18 to #14. -- Paul Jansen CEO TIOBE Software"
