NO RATINGS
With every hacker/maker I know working with more fringe languages like Python, Ruby, and the like, I am shocked that plain old "C" is still at the top of the list. Also, it's nice to see assembly at #3. Assembly is my forte, I'm surprised I never found a job writing it in the past.  I am also annoyed that all my past jobs had me learn some sort of esoteric language at their whim, to look like a leading edge company, when the entire industry is still working in C.

Such is the times, I suppose. Everyone is hustling.



ps. I look forward to the 2012 list.
