Stack Overflow #Developer Survey #2017
Some interesting things from the yearly survey from arguably the most popular #programming related site on the internet.
Coding isn’t just a career; it can be a passion. Among all developers, 75.0% code as a hobby; even among professional developers a similar proportion (73.9%) do so. Additionally, 32.7% of developers said they contribute to open source projects.
Yay! Though personally I really can't count SQL (2nd place) as a programming language.. Unless talking about PL/SQL or something like that.
Windows Desktop was the most commonly used platform by developers, followed by Linux Desktop.
A huge 32.9% of respondents use #Linux. Who cares about mainstream adoption when we have the developers <3
Python shot to the most wanted language this year (as in, the language developers want to use this year more than any other), after ranking fourth last year.
Python on the rise!
Linux Desktop was the most loved platform. Sharepoint was the most dreaded.
No surprises here. On either points :D
