Though it simply makes the highest 5 most-wanted, Svelte (71.47%) is tied with ASP.NET Core because the most-loved net framework. FastAPI (70.04%) is second on the rostrum, adopted by most-wanted framework React.js (69.28%), Vue.js (64.41%), and Specific (62.07%).
Three of the most-loved net frameworks additionally seem within the high 5 highest-paid: Svelte, ASP.NET Core, and React.js.

Python (67.83%) simply falls out of the highest 5 most-loved programming languages.
Coding in a language you like may repay, with each Clojure and Elixir showing within the high 5 highest paid languages. In actual fact, Clojure builders are, on common, raking within the greatest annual salaries ($95,000).
That wage is over $14k greater than the second-highest that goes to F# ($81,037) builders, adopted by Elixir ($80,077) and Erlang ($80,077) which tie third-place, Perl and Ruby that tie fourth ($80,000), and Scala ($77,832) which completes the highest 5.

By a large margin, AWS (54.22%) unsurprisingly stays the cloud platform to beat in utilization. Nevertheless, Google Cloud (31.05%) and Microsoft Azure (30.77%) made substantial good points over final yr.
Nevertheless, if we’re speaking about extensive margins, nothing comes near the margin Visible Studio (VS Code particularly) enjoys in IDE utilization. Visible Studio Code leads the pack (71.06%), adopted by Visible Studio (33.03%), Notepad++ (29.71%), IntelliJ (28.74%), after which Vim (24.19%).
