Here is a very nice graph showing the most popular programming Languages of 2014.

Every year we release data on the “Most Popular Programming Languages” based on thousands of data points we’ve collected by processing over 100,000+ coding tests and challenges by over 2,000+ employers.

This gives us a pretty good idea on what the trends are for the upcoming year in terms of what companies are looking for. It’s data we hope will be especially helpful for new computer sciences graduates or coders looking to stay ahead of the curve.

Programming microcontrollers isn’t hard. Building a programmer makes a great first electronics project. The goal of this instructable is to explain the simple ‘in circuit serial programming’ method used with Microchip PICs.

AVRDUDESS is a GUI for AVRDUDE, a tool for programming Atmel microcontrollers - [via]

Some key features:

  • Supports all programmers and MCUs that AVRDUDE supports
  • Supports presets, allowing you to change between devices and configurations quickly and easily
  • Drag and drop files for easy uploading
  • Automatically lists available COM ports

Picked up one of these IC test clips on eBay for a few quid.

The idea is that you clip it to a chip on a circuit board so you have easy access to the connections for use with test probes.

I’ve got a different use for it though. If you develop a circuit using an Atmega chip (like, say, a circuit you developed with an Arduino but have now moved to a custom board), reprogramming the chip is fiddly. The best way to make your circuit easily re-programmable is to build an ISP header onto your board – it’s just a 6-pin connector that lets you blast new programming onto the chip without removing it from the circuit.

Ritchie S. King from IEEE Spectrum looks at the most popular programming languages: [via]

Listing programming languages is easy—Wikipedia’s page has more than 600 entries—but ranking them by popularity is hard. As David Welton, curator of the site LangPop.com, points out, you can’t send out a horde of researchers to look over programmers’ shoulders and note what languages they’re coding in. So you have to get at it indirectly.

To do that, you can search the Web and find numbers to use as a proxy. And you can tailor the search to target different kinds of popularity: Which languages are the most sought after in the job market? Check a job site. Which are used by elite programmers? Look in on their chat sessions. How established is a language? Visit an online bookstore—new and esoteric languages don’t have many reference books dedicated to them.

The data here come in part from TIOBE, a software research firm based in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The analysts there produce an aggregate index each month. I also looked at Welton’s LangPop.com, which shows the results of individual searches, such as on Craigslist, Internet Relay Chat, and Powell’s Books.
