Job Market for Programming Languages

One consideration when choosing a programming language is the demand in the job market for people who know thatĀ language. I did some searches on different job sites to see what skills are in demand. Below are the results from for jobs that tagged specific languages as skills. For more information, I created a Google Spreadsheet with job data from different websites.

Java is used extensively in big companies, so it has the most results. Javascript is the only language of front-end development, so it takes the second spot. PHP is clearly less popular than it used to be, while Python and Ruby vary by website.
