Also congrats to Elixir team, as the second language most admired
I liked the new way they are bringing this data:
To better gauge hype versus reality, we created a visualization that shows the distance between the proportion of respondents who want to use a technology (“desired”) and the proportion of users that have used the same technology in the past year and want to continue using it (“admired”). Wide distances means that momentum generated by the hype grows with hands-on use, and shorter distances means that the hype is doing much of the heavy lifting as far as general popularity is concerned.
In the “momentum” criteria, Elixir is the number one, basically the more you use it, the more you want to use it
