The rise of Python for Embedded Systems
July 25, 2017
Python isn't just the most-popular language for introductory CS programs and hobbyist developers, it's also the fastest-growing language for embedded systems and IoT. Find out more!

|Python on Top Programming Language Ranking by IEEE|
According to IEEE Spectrum, Python is ranked No. 1 in the top programming languages of 2017.
Python has continued its upward trajectory from last year and jumped two places to the No. 1 in the overall ranking. While the first position is confirmed for Web and Enterprise categories, this amazing language still needs to explode in the Embedded category, despite the rise of Python-based embedded development platforms like Zerynth (www.zerynth.com) and MicroPython.
This ranking is not that surprising. Today the vast majority of embedded code is still written in C. Expert and skilled C programmers could justify this stating that “C generates a faster, more compact, and more reliable code”
if you replace C with “assembly” in that statement, you’d have exactly what an extinct generation of programmers said about 20 years ago!
Python isn’t just the most-popular language for introductory CS programs and hobbyist developers, it’s also the fastest-growing language for embedded systems and IoT.
