In this paper a very simple model for the dynamics of two programming languages is presented. Considering two programming languages X and Y respectively, it is possible to explain in relation to time the obsolescence of some programming languages and the future trend of those most used. Also, it is possible to quantify the level of popularity or decadence by using a parameter related with the use of language.With the aid of the model it is possible to predict future trends of languages, something very important when we have to take some decisions related to the investment in education related to the teaching of certain programming languages or the programming of industrial applications. Thus, depending on the election of a specific language and its prevalence in a specific area a company or institution is going to be able to better navigate in the future.
