Python has topped software testing outfit Tiobe's programming language list for the second year in a row, as it was awarded the title of programming language of the year.

The Tiobe ranking is based on the words developers use to search for a language, segmented by each language’s share of searches.

Python owes its popularity to its use in machine learning and data science, and to the extensive software libraries in the Python Package index.

The language runs well on high-end hardware and offers opportunities for development on cloud platforms such as Azure.

"Python has it all to become the de facto standard programming language for many domains," says Tiobe’s Paul Jensen. "There are no signs that Python's triumphal march will stop soon."
