Google Trends is a fascinaing way to look at what people are searching for. You can analyze multiple search terms by locale or worldwide. I wondered whether software is becoming a commodity and whether programming langauges are still in favour. What I found surprised me. It appears that most languages even the most popular ones like PHP are on the decline. While platforms like Wordpress are on a steep increase. Will we build solutions online from software stacks like Wordpress? Or is this a momentary blip?
And of course WordPress is eating Joomla's and Drupal's lunch. Several years ago (ca 2012) when Joomla 3.0 came out, instead of increasing, Joomla started declining rapidly in interest, while Drupal seems relatively stable. This is dominance and clearly shows Wordpress taking away mindshare and interest from the other 2 leading open source CMS systems.
