Battle of the DIC Forums - Top 20

Post icon  Posted 10 November 2008 - 09:31 PM

Think your language has what it takes to be in the DIC Top 20? Here are the top 20 forums by topic views in the past 30 days at DIC:

Want your favorite forum to make the cut next time? Get in there and start posting. We didn't even have a .NET section before PsychoCoder got here!!! If he can make .NET the #3 most viewed forum, you can too.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Yeah, I would've expected Java or possibly one of the .NET languages to be the most popular.

btw:
I think that chart clearly demonstrates a need for a Objective C forum. Currently they have to post in other languages.

Also, there wasn't even a C# tutorial section now it has more tutorials than PHP. All hail C#!

On a serious note, I knew C/C++ would top this, especially if you look at the sheer number of questions that get posted daily in that forum

Makes you wonder if C/C++ is just popular in schools or the most confusing so a lot of people are posting questions trying to understand it. I think it is a bit of both.

Anyways, if you look at the number of pages for each language you could have figured out this list I think. :)

Edit: Also the top 7 languages are also the 7 forums I cruise often. Coincidence? I think not!

Is there any old statistics that can be used to detect any change in the distribution?
