5 Programming Languages That Are Probably Doomed

Not all programming languages endure forever. In fact, even the most popular ones inevitably crumble away, as new generations of developers embrace other languages and frameworks they find easier to work with. In order to determine which programming languages are likely doomed in the medium- to long-term, we looked at the popularity rankings by TIOBE and RedMonk, as well as Dice's own database of job postings. If your career is based on any of the following languages, we suggest diversifying your skill-set at some point: Ruby, Haskell, Objective-C, R, and Perl.
