IntelliJ IDEA and Kotlin top choices for JVM developers

Snyk and Java Magazine have just announced their results of surveying more than 10,200 JVM developers. The report shows good news for JetBrains and for our users.

Kotlin is more popular than ever! It’s overtaken Scala and Groovy to be the third most used JVM language (behind Java, of course, and Clojure).
