I don't understand the methodology, it seems to measure "what languages are not used all that much in workplaces"? The original "study" made more sense with the scatterplot: https://stackoverflow.blog/2017/02/What-Programming-Languages-Weekends/

Am I reading it correctly that D is the second most popular general purpose language (let's exclude GLSL form general purpose programming)?? And that the volume of weekday commits, at least in GitHub, is dominated by niche and legacy languages, plus Matlab?

I believe he tried to build a list of languages that are not used both on weekdays and on weekends. Not sure what anyone would want to know anything about that? Clickbait?

You're reading it wrong: it's sorted by ratio weekend/weekday, not by weekend (ie, not by volume). On Wed, Feb 22, 2017 at 3:42 AM, Ola Fosheim Grøstad via Digitalmars-d <digitalmars-d puremagic.com> wrote:
