Jobs Tractor language trends September 2012

Drop in jobs in September

There was a drop from about 12k jobs in July to around 10k in August. Probably to be expected with the summer holidays in full swing. The biggest faller was Ruby and the biggest climber Python. I guess Ruby devs take their holidays in August, perhaps the Python guys like to go when there are fewer crowds?

Apart from that, PHP took the top spot again from Java and Objective C continued to threaten to take the number 2 spot.
