As part of my colleague Steve’s analysis about language rankings, here’s a visualization that tracks the movement of the top 20 languages over the history of the rankings.
Please see Steve’s post for additional commentary and disclaimers about the analysis.

So according to the graph, is Assembly extinct ? 🙁
Maybe a distinction between lower and high levels could help map out the ranks. At the end of the day all becomes zero and ones anyhow…php is made of c++ and so forth…

Not dead by any means, just not in the Top 20. (Our methodology changed in January 2014 when GitHub changed its data availability.)

This is a fine chart and very informative. I just can’t help to think that it would be a bit quicker to traverse if it didn’t have those white dots at every row and datapoint. Its a bit distracting to my eye.
