5563235 story C# and Java Weekday Languages, Python and Ruby For Weekends? 389 Posted by timothy on Saturday August 15, 2009 @03:22PM from the like-a-commercial-for-light-beer dept. Dan Lorenc writes "Using the StackOverflow.com data dump, I measured the activity of various programming languages throughout the week. The results: Ruby and Python saw a rise in questions asked on the weekend while C# and Java saw a dropoff in activity on the weekend. This means that more programmers are using Python and Ruby on the weekend for their personal projects, showing that these languages are more fun to use. Show this experiment to your boss the next time you are selecting a programming language for a project at work."
