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 USA being the top location with almost a fifth of respondents. The overwhelming majority of respondents, 70%, count as professional programmer, while another 8% write code as part of their work. Students preparing to be programmers account for 14% and six percent consider coding as a hobby.
Looking at the technologies used on a day-to-day basis the report states:
Stack Overflow does more than collect information on which programming languages respondents use. It also has devised an approach that allows them to characterize them as "Wanted" "Loved" and "Dreaded" based on asking them to select the languages they have worked with in the PAST year and those they want to work with NEXT year.
The results for Professional Developers in regards to Programming, scripting and markup languages are summarized in an interactive network graph.
In the case of languages the graphs for All Developers and Professional Developers are pretty similar This is not as clear cut for Collaboration Tools as fewer tools are used by Professionals and a smaller proportion of the professional group use IntelliJ, which seems conunterintitive.
However the dominance of Visual Studio Code is clearly obvious from both of these network charts.
The Stack Overflow Survey covers a great deal more so this is just my first look.
