Hackathon Challenge :
It is difficult to determine which programming languages (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programming_language) are most widely used, and what usage means varies by context. One language may occupy the greater number of programmer hours, a different one have more lines of code, a third may utilize the most CPU time, and so on. Some languages are very popular for particular kinds of applications. For example, COBOL (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COBOL) is still strong in the corporate data center, often on large mainframes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mainframe_computer); FORTRAN (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortran_(programming_language)) in engineering applications; C (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_(programming_language)) in embedded applications and operating systems; and other languages are regularly used to write many different kinds of applications.
The current challenge is to develop a ranking algorithm for getting the popularity of a Computer language in the year 2014!
