Developers and programming enthusiasts eagerly await the results of the annual Stack Overflow survey every year. It’s the world’s largest and most comprehensive survey to involve programmers and their preferences. The 2019 edition of this survey touched about 90,000 developers and the results are finally here.
In this article, I’ll be particularly focusing on the most popular programming languages and technologies being used today. This will be followed by a series of other articles in the upcoming days that’ll discuss other aspects of the survey.
25 Most popular programming languages/technologies
Before we begin, it’s important to highlight that Stack Overflow has taken more steps to represent the developer community across the world in an even manner. On some occasions, survey weighting has been used to take care of the unavoidable demographic skew.
If we also consider scripting and markup languages, then HTML/CSS grab the second spot with 63.5% voters using them, followed by SQL at #3 with 54.4% votes.
