stackoverflow dev survey 2018

Is out now, here.

Its really interesting (if you are a developer, or interested in that sort of thing), loads of interesting details to avoid work

a few highlights

  • Most Dreaded Platform – Sharepoint. ha ha ha ha hahahah
  • 2nd most loved language – Kotlin. Agreed, this is the best language I have ever used.
  • About 7% of devs are over 45 – maybe that’s because no one loves us…
  • The UK has the highest proportion of independent devs. Germany the most part time.
  • Functional languages pay the biggest bucks, especially in the US
  • Javascript, the most common language, is also the worst paid.
  • Most devs want to stay in dev or do a start up, few want to go into management.
  • 50% of devs use a standing desk. ‘Have used once’ I could believe, but 50%? regularly? I’m slightly dubious on this one.
  • Everyone is doing (fr)Agile or Scum.
  • Most devs are using git and generally check-in a few times a day
  • Mobile devs are almost the worst paid (another great career choice from me)

and finally, as per last year I think….

  • Most dreaded Language – VB – any flavour!

Again

I must admit, although I use SO a lot, I don’t really participate. Most of the questions have better answers than I could provide and there are a few too many milk monitors.

I did have a poke around their job site for a while looking for remote jobs. There weren’t many and the search seemed a bit random. I got my latest job from Jobserve as usual, not remote, also as usual.

Have you got any SO insights?

cheers
