What languages do the best AI programmers use?

The AI challenge is a nice opportunity to get good data on what tools good AI programmers use. In that mind, I've created a bunch of histogram showing the distribution of rankings by programming language.

Perhaps unsuprisingly, a language used by a lot of good players and almost no bad ones is C++ 2011. On the other hand, VB produces almost no good bots. There are quite a few other interesting patterns in there, I'll leave it to yourself to discover: http://imgur.com/a/Li1b4#69

I've also done the same using countries instead of programming languages. Again, pretty interesting patterns emerge. Which country has the best AI programmers: Ukraine or India? Answers in the data!

The code is here if you want to play with it: https://gist.github.com/1444728

Nice histograms ;)
The rankings for C++11 are impressive, it would be interesting to compare them to Go...
