Study: Language Choice Has Only a Small Impact on Code Quality
A new study conducted by computer scientists from UC Davis attempts to settle a long-term debate among developers: does the choice of a programming language impact code quality in a given project? The answer, according to the researchers, is yes, but that impact is very small.
However, the report authors caution that the impact of the language choice was "quite small." Other factors, such as the size of the project and the size of the team, had a much bigger impact on code quality.
