(mostly quoted from Packt)

Packt has been creating an industry-specific survey known as Skill Up since 2015 with over 30,000 software developers and IT professionals across Europe, North America and Asia respond to questions about their skills, salaries and industry trends.  This year almost 8,000 developers and tech pros took part in the huge Skill Up survey to give a picture of the state of modern tech. The full report is available online

To celebrate, they are offering two specials:
  • All videos and e-books for $10 through June 26
  • A 14 day day trial of Mapt


  • Here are some of the key findings from Packt’s report:
  • ava remains the most widely used programming language, although 41% of respondents said that they believe the language faces stiff competition from Kotlin.
  • Python remains another hugely important language in software. It is being used by software professionals in a number of roles, but it is most prevalent in data science and analysis. 77% of respondents here listed Python as their most used language.
