Python is one of the most popular programming language in the world. And recently new proof of this statement appeared. Stack Overflow, one of the most popular resource for all kind of coders, published the metrics, demonstrating the giant growth of Python's popularity.

We can see on Stack Overflow Trends that Python has been growing rapidly in the last few years. But let's focus on high-income countries, and consider visits to questions rather than questions asked (this tends to give similar results, but has less month-by-month noise, especially for smaller tags).

These are currently six of the ten most-visited Stack Overflow tags in high-income countries; CSS, HTML, Android, and JQuery aren't included.
