What will be the biggest development trends in 2019?


on 21 January 2019

This article is more than 5 years old.

What’s the most popular programming language today among software developers? It’s still JavaScript, with over 10M users globally. Python has reached 7M active developers and is climbing up the ranks.

How do we know that? Thanks to the Developer Economics survey.

Every year it reaches over 40,000 developers in 167+ countries to discover what’s happening in the software world and where it’s going next.

This week, Developer Economics survey is back again in its brand new 16th edition, calling out all developers to take part. If you’re involved in mobile, desktop, IoT, AR/VR, machine learning and data science, web, backend/cloud, and game development, then you’ll find this survey relevant. It’s open to all developers, seasoned professionals and well as early stage beginners, students and just hobbyists.

Developer Economics survey focuses on the kind of questions that help industry understand the future trends and opportunities for growth. What sort of developer skills are the most important? What programming languages, tools or platforms are you using in your projects? What kind of resources are the most valuable when you want to learn something new? In this new 16th edition, the survey also asks questions about ethics, privacy and security, as well as project management methodologies in software development.

The insights coming from the survey will help shed the light on the most important trends in 2019. All participants who complete the survey enter the prize draws where they can win $18,000+ worth of prizes, including Samsung S9 Plus, Oculus Rift + Touch Virtual Reality System, Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 Tenkeyless NKR Tactile Action Keyboard, developer licenses, Udemy vouchers, and more.

Developers will also get access to survey results in the form of “State of the Developer Nation 16th edition” report and benchmarks to compare their standing against global trends.

Finally, those who like the surprise factor will be pleased to discover their ultimate sci-fi AI character at the end of the survey, built based on their answers and worth sharing with their friends.

We want to help developers be at the forefront of where the industry is going next. That’s why we’re supporting Developer Economics survey – to shed the light on the upcoming trends.

We’re inviting you all to take part in the survey and be a part of something bigger.
