Delphi and C++ Builder Trending up on the TIOBE programming language index

“Delphi/Object Pascal” sits in 12th place up 8 places from last year. It even sits higher than Swift and Objective-C, which should come as no surprise when you consider that Delphi developers can write applications for iOS and port those applications to other platforms with little or no alterations to the code. “Pascal” is in 16th place, up 14 places from last year. The combined “Delphi / Object Pascal / Pascal” rating comes out at 2.98% which puts Delphi at 6th place right behind Python, C#, C++, C and Java.
