So you people must have heard about the very old language which is PowerShell and it is noted that it's been trending and has reentered the TIOBE index in the march ranking in the top 50 leading programming languages.

This index is known to be the monthly indicator of the popularity of coding languages, created based on the number of skilled engineers, courses, and third-party vendors worldwide.  For calculating the ratings these Search engines are used: including Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube, and Baidu.  While the index does not rank the best programming languages, it is meant to check whether a developers programming skills are up to date, or to make decisions about what languages should be adopted when building a new software system.

PowerShell is typically used for basic scripting, the index noted. The language had only been available for Windows until three years ago when Microsoft open sourced it.

In 2018, Microsoft released PowerShell Core for the Ubuntu Snap Store, as part of PowerShell Cores release of a snap package. PowerShell Core is open source and runs on all major platforms likely a major reason why PowerShell is growing in popularity again, the index noted.

PowerShell is ranking with 0.180% in this month. PowerShell now comes in at no. 45 on the TIOBE index, just below Kotlin, Julia, Haskell, and Hack. Java, C, Python, and C++ come in at the top of the list this month.
