Highlights of the StackOverflow 2019 Survey Result for Developers
StackOverflow is one of the most loved Forum for Developers around the world working with various programming languages. StackOverflow has the answers to almost every problem that you might face while developing any type of software. StackOverflow has a monthly traffic of 560 Million page-views. StackOverflow has been launched since 15 September 2008. Now let’s look at the outline of the article,
1] Key Results
2] The Top 3 Participants in Survey

4] Most Popular Technologies
5] Most Loved, Dreaded, and Wanted Technologies
6] Most Popular Development Enviroment / IDE
7] Top Paying Technologies
8] Percentage of Students among the Survey Takes
Recently StackOverflow conducted an on-site survey in which they asked developers various questions and their feedback and opinions regarding development in the future and in the past. I have to say that it was one of the lengthiest surveys I have ever taken. But it was worth it because StackOverflow has helped me more than any other person or platform.
In a recent survey, there were some shocking results that were unexpected. In today’s article, we will summarise all these outcomes that are must for a Developer to be aware of.
1] Python, the fastest-growing major programming language, has risen in the ranks of programming languages in our survey yet again, edging out Java this year and standing as the second most loved language (behind Rust).
2] Over half of respondents had written their first line of code by the time they were sixteen, although this experience varies by country and by gender.
3] DevOps specialists and site reliability engineers are among the highest paid, most experienced developers most satisfied with their jobs, and are looking for new jobs at the lowest levels.
4] Of the top countries in our survey, China has developers that are the most optimistic, believing that people born today will have a better life than their parents. Developers in Western European countries like France and Germany are among the least optimistic about the future.
5] When thinking about blockers to productivity, different kinds of developers report different challenges. Men are more likely to say that being tasked with non-development work is a problem for them, while gender minority respondents are more likely to say that toxic work environments are a problem.
6] We asked respondents to think about the last time they solved coding problems with and without our site. The data indicate that Stack Overflow saves a developer 30 to 90 minutes of time per week!
