these results seem largely to pass the smell test. Notice the standard movement *away* from big data, which matches scuttlebutt. I'm surprised redis isn't doing better, though

(tldr; Go is currently winning in 2017, and C is in no danger of going away)

So I wrote a script for it. You can query Google from a script and get the number of search results using a tiny snippet. I tried a few different query strings, like move from <language 1> to <language 2>, switch to <language 2> from <language 1> and a few more ones. In the end you get a nice N * N contingency table of all languages:

We can actually treat this as probabilities from switching between languages and say something about what the future language popularities will be: Go, C, Java, C++, Python

I did the same analysis for frontend frameworks [and databases]

"We can actually treat this as probabilities from switching between languages and say something about what the future language popularities will be. One the key is that the stationary distribution of this process does not depend on the initial distribution — turns out this is basically just the first eigenvector of the matrix. So you really don’t have to make any assumptions about what’s popular right now — the hypothetical future stationary state is independent of this."
