Here on Tech.Co, we’ve looked at the most popular programming language in each state, observed various programming languages in terms of their growth and popularity, and provided you information on which programming languages could earn you the most money. Well, now, according to a recently published infographic by Loggly, we now know some of the most popular languages in GitHub since 2012.

I mean, things like CSS and Puppet (which, yours truly just learned was a thing) aren’t even languages. And the information is pretty hard to decipher; we had to reach out to developers to figure out what the Erlenmeyer flask stood for (it’s for the previously mentioned Puppet – which is apparently rarely used and isn’t itself a language anyway).
It does serve some minimal purpose in that it shows the changes in popularity among the various programming languages. So, I mean, I guess there’s that. Check out the infographic below:
