The updated TIOBE index has been published.
It shows continued strength for Java and C. It is also interesting to see Ruby crack the top 10 of this survey. The survey technique is very interesting as it includes multiple search engines for job postings and courses offered.
These days I've been working on upcoming event plans including:
- php|tek in Orlando next week
- IDUG North America
Come and join me for my talk on Tuesday, XML to the Max - DB2 Viper with PHP. I'm looking forward to the event next week with multiple keynotes and lots of interesting people.
I'm co-presenting with Leon on Sunday, May 7th Building leading edge DB2 applications: a practical approach.
Then I plan to help introduce people to some of the great new features of DB2 Viper during the expo from Monday to Wednesday.
Bring your laptop so you can spend sometime taking the DB2 Viper test drive, you'll be glad you did.
Next event, JavaOne 2006.What is it with software conferences in May ?
I'm definitely glad that my 3 week summer vacation is already book !!
