Both of those look at search engines, not at job openings specifically.
+100!

Most of the "popular languages" lists are worthless. Look at local job postings to see what languages are desired locally. The popularity of languages can be very local -- some years back the city I live in had a lot of listings for SQL Server, but none for Oracle. Another city 100 miles away was the reverse.

Regarding Python? I don't know a single person who is using it professionally. There has been a lot of buzz around Python for several years, which prompts a lot of searches regarding Python, which pops it higher in the index, which does NOT necessarily produce more Python jobs ...

VB6, unfortunately, they do, wich is something you really MUST NOT LEARN.
Laugh | :laugh:

Visual Basic is a fine language, as good as any and better than many. Crap programs can be written in any language, and the garbage I've been exposed to in Java and C# programs, written by folks that have no clue what OO is, is legion.

That said, I don't recommend VB6, as it's a dead language. There are many positions for VB -- it's in the top 20 in most lists -- but they are mostly legacy positions, supporting ancient code. I recently retired an application originally written in VS97/C++ (v5?), and it was a relief!
