Based on your own experience or if you were to make a guess, what would you say is the most popular language for software testers?
Is it based on company or your own preference for what language you use?June 10, 2016 at 8:12 am #12348@andrei-domutaOnly available when logged in
I would guess Java. My guess is based on the my friends’ testimonials
My personal preference is Ruby. Is the easiest language to learn, build with and debug which I had my hands on
Would be nice to hear some other opinions 🙂June 12, 2016 at 11:43 pm #12366@sgershonOnly available when logged in
At work, we use C#, Python and C.
We used Java, Perl and Ruby occasionally.
Side note: In this year’s EuroSTAR conference, we have a few programming presentations and tutorials. If we get more replies on the popular languages we can try to include examples from them, as many of the speakers have knowledge in a variety of languages!

I don’t know about the most popular but I use selenium web driver with C# for web pages and Postman for OData API.June 21, 2016 at 9:19 am #12483June 29, 2016 at 10:00 am #12625@andrei-domutaOnly available when logged in
I was having a look over the Stack Overflow Dev survey and trying to find a link between the dev preferences for the programming language and the testing preference.
And BTW, do you think the testers should use the same language as the dev team? one positive outcome would be the know-how sharing + code review
