O’Reilly’s state of the book market programming languages

O’Reilly is releasing their numbers on the book market via programming languages. It is pretty interesting to see where growth was and what languages are more popular than others. For instance they saw the most growth in Python, and saw a pretty significant drop in Ruby and C++, while C# is the most purchased programming language book.

Of course O’Reilly isn’t the end all be all of computer book sales (as in there are other players who may have totally different results) and this is totally just by number units sold, but it is interesting to see what the numbers casually tell you.
