    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?

    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 🙂

    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.

    So it looks like C# is the most popular going my the responses here. Funny as you mentioned @andrei-domuta I thought too that Java would be the most popular but the more I read different testing blogs, the more I see Ruby being mentioned.

    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.
    http://stackoverflow.com/research/developer-survey-2016#technology-most-popular-technologies

    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
