NXT-G makes top 20 programming languages
I know that we all think the NXT is fantastic, but here is proof about how popular it is. The TIOBE Programming Community Index ranks NXT-G in at 20th position. (it was as high as 15th in Feb last year). When up against such programming heavyweights such as Java, C, PHP etc that's not a bad effort.
Admittedly their methodology might not be the most accurate, as they derive their rankings based on a search engine check of the phrase "NXT-G Programming" and the number of hits it returns. But we'll take the compliment anyway!
Interesting graph of rankings, it looks like straight after Christmas there was a surge in queries for "NXT-G Programming" and an overall stead increase over the last 4 years.
