Packt Publishing reveals results of 2018 Developer survey
With almost 8,000 respondents, Packt's survey illustrates how different areas of software are changing and how the demands of different job roles are being impacted by emerging trends like machine learning, DevOps and cloud.
Here are some of the key findings from Packt's report :
* Packt's report offers an insight into top tools for 4 distinct industries - App Development, Web Development, Security & System Administration and Data
* Discover what developers think of the modern tech community and workplace
* What do developers in different sectors say is the next big thing?
* With expert insight and commentary from top Packt authors
Packt's report also offers an insight into the key languages and tools being used across software. Java remains the most widely used programming language, although 41% of respondents said that they believe the language faces stiff competition from Kotlin. Python remains another hugely important language in software. It is being used by software professionals in a number of roles, but it is most prevalent in data science and analysis. 77% of respondents here listed Python as their most used language.
"This year's Skill Up survey confirms that the technology landscape is changing at a rapid pace, often in ways we might not expect," said Oli Huggins, Head of Product Strategy at Packt. "The consequences for everyone working in tech is huge. It means developers need to stay up to date and open to change. They need to be vigilant about what is happening inside and outside of their field."
