This report, the 6th we’ve covered in an annual series, is based on responses from 83,439 software developers from 181 countries around the world, with the United States being the top country with nearly a fifth of respondents. The overwhelming majority of respondents, 70%, are considered professional programmers, while 8% write code as part of their job. Students preparing to become programmers make up 14% and 6% consider coding a hobby.
Looking at the technologies used on a daily basis, the report states:
Stack Overflow does more than collect information about the programming languages used by respondents. He also designed an approach that allows them to characterize them as “Wanted”, “Loved” and “Dreaded” by asking them to select the languages they worked with LAST year and those with which they want to work in the year. NEXT.
Like = Worked with LAST year AND Want to work with NEXT year
dreaded = Worked with LAST year CORN DO NOT Want to work with NEXT year
Wanted to = DOES NOT HAVE Worked with LAST year CORN Want to work with NEXT year
Results for professional developers for programming, scripting, and markup languages are summarized in an interactive network chart.
In the case of languages, the graphics for all developers and professional developers are quite similar. It’s not as clear for collaboration tools because fewer tools are used by professionals and a smaller proportion of the professional group uses IntelliJ, which seems contradictory.
However, the dominance of Visual Studio Code is clear from these two network diagrams.
The Stack Overflow survey covers a lot more, so this is just my first look.
