Use the programming language he developed Mozilla It has nearly tripled in the past 24 months. More than 2.2 million developers used Rust in the first quarter of the year, up from 600,000 in 2020.

C/C ++ (11 million), C# (10 million) and PHP (7.9 million) complete the group of six languages most used by the programming community. Of these three categories, PHP has experienced the slowest growth over the past six months, with 600,000 new users. This number contrasts with the 2.2 million that C# added during this period.
C and C ++ are the languages used in Development of embedded systems and IoT projects. In addition, it is also relevant to desktop development, a sector that had more than 15 million developers worldwide at the end of the first quarter of this year.

In the case of Dart, we can see that it maintains its growth thanks to the increasing adoption of Flutter in mobile development.
Finally, Lua stands out as the third fastest growing language over the past 12 months, behind Rust and Kotlin. Its user base consists of Internet of Things and video game programmers, who are looking for an alternative to C and C ++.
