Last Month I read trough the requirements to be included in the TIOBE Index,
and I noticed, PureBasic fulfills them all!

It has an wiki site
It is turing complete
and "PureBasic programming" returned more then 5000 Google results.

So I submitted it and as of today PureBasic debuts with an amazing 44th place :!:


What is the TIOBE Index?
A rough estimate of the popularity of programming languages.
Its often referred to by news site because they like numbers.
PureBasic is already mentioned in an article of the biggest german IT- news site.

How is it calculated:
The 25 biggest search engines ((Google, Youtube, Wikipedia, Amazon...) are queried for "<Language> programming"
and for each search engine the percentage of a language on the total matches is noted and averaged.

In the German forum I predicted a place in the "Next 50"
How wrong I was :)

Congratulations to the team for making PureBasic so good and popular! Image

"I suspect that if someone were to suggest adding PureBasic to the list, it would be added, and it would debut in the top 100."

Roger that!

Any good publicity helps our cause.

Too bad this doesn't consider the mainstream constraint. If a language is used as standard and widely established, you're forced to use it, ergo you'll feed it's popularity, even if you don't like it at all.

Totally agree! :?

C is there by virtue of it's age too - for a long time it was the "default" language and so there is a huge amount of legacy code, too big to replace.

so Java seemed to arrive hot on the scene but then slowly faded out until October 2014 when it started making a quick comeback, any particular reason for that?
it's also interesting that C is more popular than C++ (the latter in declining popularity while C remains constant), I guess I'm not the only person who isn't a huge fan of OOP :D
it's really hard to make sense of this graph though without fully understanding all the quirks of their metrics, which i dont

Hard to believe that Delphi is at the same level as JavaScript as Delphi is a commerical programming language while JavaScript is being used in nearly every website.

Maybe we can set a PB awareness week, by all of us banding together to google PB like mad, and see how high we can bump it. (Isn't Google one metric used?)

PB Awareness week! Hmm...
Good idea, but i will suggest it be used as a concerted marketing campaign. For example : Fantasie Software (the company) provide us with a marketing package. Then each one of us can send it to multiple local prospects (with our name included as a local reference) so that more interest be generated in the compiler.

PureBasic is explicitly mentioned in the current news (http://www.tiobe.com/tiobe_index):
Quote:
There are alternatives available such as PureBasic (position #43), thinBasic (#77) and BBC Basic (#79), but their communities are still too small yet to compensate the declining popularity of Visual Basic.

Wow...
