PHP Remains at 4th in TIOBE Programming Community
May 08, 2007 @ 13:22:21

As mentioned by the International PHP Magazine, PHP has held strong at its fourth place ranking on the TIOBE Programming Community Index for the month of May.

The TIOBE Programming Community index gives an indication of the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once a month. The ratings are based on the world-wide availability of skilled engineers, courses and third party vendors. The popular search engines Google, MSN, and Yahoo! are used to calculate the ratings. Observe that the TIOBE index is not about the best programming language or the language in which most lines of code have been written.

PHP kept its ranking right alongside other popular languages like C++, Java and Perl to remain in the top five of the list. Their graph still shows a downward trend for the presence of PHP on the web, but it's the same trend that can be seen affecting several other languages as well.

PHP Holds at #4 on TIOBE Software's Programming Community Index
October 20, 2006 @ 08:44:00

As mentioned by the Zend Developer Zone, PHP is still holding strong in the TIOBE Programming Community index n terms of how popular the language is. PHP comes in, once again, at number four on the list, bested by (in descending order) Java, C, and C++.

Most of the top languages on the index are staying around the same spot, but two languages - Visual Basic and Python - are nipping at the top four's heels. Things are getting pretty neck and neck for three languages - PHP, Basic, and C++. Their stats have been fluctuating just around each other, but not changing enough to make a difference in the listings.

You can check out the full listing on the TIOBE Software website (including a graph of each language in relation to the others).

PHP still Ranks Fourth in Popularity on TIOBE Programming Community Index
October 05, 2006 @ 08:13:00

As mentioned in this new article on the International PHP Magazine's website today, PHP has come in fourth (once again) in the TIOBE Programming Community index's rankings.

PHP stands at fourth place in the October 2006 edition of the TIOBE Programming Community index. Its position has jumped a notch since last month, while Java continues to hold the top spot.

In long-term trends, PHP shows a significant jump from October 2001 to February 2002. As the graph on TIOBE's web site indicates, PHP has been charting an uneven course, facing ups and just as many downs. However, PHP's position as of Feb 2006 is significantly higher than that of 2005.

You can check out either their post or the actual index to get more information.

According to this new post on Chris Shiflett's blog, Zend has recieved another "boost" to their cash flow to the tune of $20 million in a fourth round of funding.

Chris cites both this News.com article and Zend's own press release on the topic:

The new funds will enable us to expand faster in emerging geographical markets, accelerate our product development and extend the services organization to meet the demands of our growing number of enterprise PHP customers.

He looks at it positively, noting that what's good for Zend is, ultimately, good for PHP - and this is very good for the company.
