      Simplicity is what made VB6 programming popular, and why VB.Net never became popular.

        "What is more worrying is the trend line. For Tiobe the popularity of C# peaked in 2012 , has been in decline ever since, and has declined by half from its peak. On the backend this news is worrying, as it suggests that for ASP.NET projects, C# is close to becoming a legacy platform."

        The golden age of the Microsoft developer ecosystem is behind us and so could be your career. The Microsoft developer ecosystem is experiencing plummeting employment opportunities and declining community interest.

        The following article on the decline of C# was written a couple of years ago. Then C# was the 4th most popular language in both Tiobe and StackOverflow surveys.
        Now C# has fallen to 5th place in Tiobe and crashed to 8th place in StackOverflow.

        Microsoft adopt JavaScript as second language for Microsoft Office, in preference to a .Net language.

        http://www.i-programmer.info/news/167-javascript/11835-excel-gets-javascript.html

        The important points to pick up from Microsoft's adoption of JavaScript for Office are:

        1) Microsoft chose JavaScript over .NET, Developers should do the same.

        2) Now that .NET is also on its way out, Developers should not start new projects using .NET
