( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Other useful metrics (*much* harder to gather) are:

  • Number of general enrolment courses advertised for a specific period. (It would be better to get information on whether the course was successful, and how many attendees there were, but I don't think training houses are publishing that information ;) ). Also might consider university subjects covering that language.
  • Number of "high quality" books being sold/written for that language. Not necessarily just O'Reilly books, as other publishing houses do make good books too, but let's not include the dodgy ones.
  • Number of (active) language-specific user groups. (Active might have something to do with busy-ness of mailing list and regularity of meetings, or perhaps one or the other).
  • Number of language-specific conferences, or perhaps number of representative talks at "programming" conferences and have a wide selection. Could also consider size of attendance.

It'd be great if it could be done. ;)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
