The company gathered the data via a survey that compiled the answers of over 11,000 respondents accessing various of its services. Data includes details about the programming language developers use, for what they employ the language, favorite frameworks, and general salary information.
Based on salaries, this list is a whole lot different. Developers reported that languages like Bash, Perl, and Scala paid over $80,000 per year while PHP and C barely got developers to the $40,000 mark.
In terms of Web-dev tools, AngularJS reigns supreme, followed by Facebook’s React.js framework, Node.js, Docker, Laravel, Bootstrap, WordPress, and AWS.
In the case of the most popular new programming languages that appeared in the last few years, nobody will be surprised to find Swift on top of the charts, followed by C#, Go, Rust, and Elixir.
