Procedural/OOP programming was the head and shoulders winner in our September poll. The ballot box is now open for the October poll which asks what route to follow to be a successful programmer.

We can now reveal the results of our September poll about the style of languages that will be used as the basis of future programs.

Overall the total vote was lower than usual perhaps an indication of the highly theoretical nature of the question - not all practicing programmers are going to have an opinion on the future of programming. It might also be an indication that it's a very difficult question and the future of programming really isn't easy to guess. 

However there was a decisive winner Procedural/OOP that gained twice as many votes as any other option, and a clear loser Logical/Declarative that had only 9% of the votes.This corresponds to the current fashion for OOP and the unfashionable status of logic programming - if you would like to find out more about logic programming see: Database the Prolog way

But between these extremes two categories Functional/Declarative and Dynamic tied and  Graphical had almost as many votes. Given how popular functional and dynamic languages are at the moment this is not a big surprise - but graphical? There are few graphical languages in use at the moment and the few there are tend to be aimed at children or niche environments such as robotics.

So it's official we really don't have much idea where programming is going!

For our next poll the question is what route should you follow to be a successful programmer. There are no right answers but it is interesting to know what you think.
