China, which has the best programming breed, doesn’t seem to be much interested in Java, instead, a liking for Python can be observed. Similar Java drop is in the case of Russia, but the language adoption seems to be almost equal.


India provides most of the candidates for the HackerRank coding force, loves Java more than other popular languages. Whereas, her geographical neighbor Pakistan is more into C++.

HackerRank has also published rankings based on how persistent a country is. Switzerland is the true leader in this category with a score of 2.5% (lower is better). It is good to know that one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations also has the most patient coding minds. The coders from the United States (4.1%) and India (6.3%) don’t seem to be tenacious enough and haven’t made it to the top 25.
