Main take aways from this list:

Java, C/C++, Python, Visual Basic .Net, C#, PHP and JavaScript are the top programming languages.

Java, however, rates twice as high as C, which is higher than C++. Notably Python has risen to 4th place on the list, and assembly language makes it in to the top 10 at #9.
