TIOBE, a Dutch organization that measures the popularity of programming languages, recently announced Assembly Language made it into the top ten as of July 2016. The popularity is presumed to have risen from the number of embedded devices, low level requirements for certain IoT gizmos, and the hacker/maker movement. TIOBE bases their assessment of search results from the major engines as a determination of usage.
