What programming languages are utilized by today’s most buzzed-about startups? That’s a question Coding Dojo took a stab at answering in its latest report on the technologies utilized by IPOs.
For its report, Coding Dojo focused on five popular startups: Instacart, Nextdoor, Stripe, Robinhood, and UiPath. It utilized StackShare for insights into these companies’ technology stacks, and found that 40 percent of these companies relied on Python as their top programming language; Bootstrap was the top framework, used at 60 percent.
Part of Python’s strength lies in its increasing use in highly specialized contexts, including data science and machine learning. Given how cutting-edge startups rely on those disciplines as the foundation of their products, perhaps it’s no surprise that Python would prove popular, as well.
