The State of Developer Ecosystem 2022
Now that we’re in 2023, we’d like to sum up the results of the previous year and share the State of Developer Ecosystem 2022 report.
As usual, we are excited to present a picture of the coding community with the latest trends in programming languages, technologies, tools, and frameworks. You can also get a glimpse into the daily lives of developers.
The report is based on the responses from 29,000 developers from more than 38,000 who participated in the survey and provides insights on a wide range of topics that describe the developer ecosystem.
This is the sixth iteration of our annual survey, and each year it becomes more comprehensive. The report shows about 500 charts organized in 31 sections divided by topic and accompanied by interesting facts. This year we introduced new sections on Data Science, Remote Development, and Mental Well-Being, not to mention new questions throughout the report.
Here are some of the key findings from the report:
- Programming languages people would like to adopt: Go, Rust, Kotlin, TypeScript, and Python.
- The programming languages that are losing their popularity: PHP, Ruby, Objective-C, and Scala.
- Working from home is still a choice for the majority of developers, and 76% choose to work primarily in a home office.
- 50% of developers practice remote collaborative programming.
- 69% of employed survey respondents are satisfied with their job, but only 57% are satisfied with their salaries. The most important component of valuing a job is feeling that you can achieve something.
- 73% of developers have experienced burnout at some point in their careers.
- The most popular way of getting a job is a referral from a friend. 30% of survey respondents got a job this way.
- Dogs are slightly more popular than cats among developers! Woof!
We encourage you to take a look at the report and share your thoughts with us.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey and helped make this report possible. We hope you find the results as interesting and informative as we do!
