About the TIOBE organization

We measure your software code quality.

TIOBE is specialized in assessing and tracking the quality of software. We measure the quality of a software system by applying widely accepted software metrics to it. TIOBE checks more than 1 billion lines of software code for its customers world-wide, real-time, each day. We measure software code quality with the mission to get rid of all bugs in the world.

TIOBE Software BV was founded the 1st of October 2000 by Paul Jansen. The name TIOBE stands for “The Importance Of Being Earnest”. This is also the name of a play written by Oscar Wilde at the end of the nineteenth century. By choosing this name, the founders of TIOBE emphasize their sincere and professional attitude towards customers, suppliers and colleagues.
