Meaningless jabberings

Overall popularity is meaningless as it depends on use-case. Chinese is a very popular language but it's of little use if you plan to live and work in France.

Programming language popularity is heavily skewed by web and mobile app development. If you want to work in financial services or machine learning though you'd want to research what those industries need rather than look at the overall top 10 languages.
