Inspired by the last post Popularity of programming languages, I wanted to do my own survey on what language aeronautical graduates of India are coding in.
Luckily i am part of a ongoing campus activity for aeronautical graduates, which gave me access to some data.
So here’s the result.
The sample size was 186.
C is the clear winner with 73% of the respondents using it, while java, which was the first in the Popularity of programming languages survey, was used by 3% of the respondents.
Since majority of the specialization was avionics domain, so the bias towards c is understandable.
Was surprised that just 22% have used Fortran, considering 90% of Aerospace/Aeronautical/Engineering code is in that language.
