We have ourselves a winner in the 2nd Programming Language World Championships! #plwc2020
Congratulations to Python, which was able to defend its title in a narrow 55 - 45 victory over C.
Third place goes to Rust with a convincing 68 - 32 against Lua.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the polls! See you next year for the third edition!
@fribbledom well it's nice to have an idea for programming languages that might be worth studying ;)
@fribbledom Woot woot!
@fribbledom python winning over lisp
Assembly over most of the above. A solid macro assembler on a good, well-documented chip architecture, and we're off to victory.
Do you have plans on extending this to other disciplines? (file formats, markup languages, IDEs, ...?)
Not sure yet. I don't wanna overdo it. Maybe I'll set up a separate mastopolls account 😂
@fribbledom as expected.
@fribbledom technical fact: The last three polls didn't make it to my Mastodon instance... They still don't appear in my feed.
They may not appear in your feed (for whatever technical reasons), but the polls themselves are visible and have been synced, right (e.g. when you check out my profile on your instance)?
@fribbledom now I see them. Weren't visible during the poll - but I heard that chaos.social had some hiccups recently. Might be the reason.
@fribbledom How is Assembly winning over Erlang?
54 - 46... not sure what else to say 😂
@fribbledom Please do a second run with all losers.
