The most popular programming languages ​​- 2018

    The next statistics from under the cut. In short - I really wanted to count in which languages ​​the domestic developers most often write and which languages ​​are most often searched by employers. Total - considered that indicated in vacancies and resumes in the first half of 2018 and 2017. It turned out what happened.

    How it was. First, the list of languages ​​- logic-intuitively assembled n languages, removed pieces of the type TypeScript, React, CSS, and so on. Mentally ready for a holivaru on the topic of the absence of Cobolʻa or something else (when compiling the list, I could miss something, but miss something).

    Visual Basic
    Visual Basic.NET
    Then I searched for the words on the list in the vacancies (the algorithm is similar when calculating the resume). Divided the search into two parts:

    1. When the name of the language is found anywhere in the job, whether it is a description, name or requirements. Job example:
    Name: Java Developer
    Description: ... welcome knowledge of scripting languages, for example, Python ...

    Such a vacancy will be taken into account in the statistics for both Java and Python.

    2. When the name of the language is found only in the title of the vacancy. This means that the vacancy from the example above will be taken into account only in Java statistics. All this is needed in order to roughly separate core subj from related skills and to better understand what is on the market).
    In the case of such languages ​​as, for example, 1C or Assembly, I searched for the names of the language along with the words developer or engineer or synonyms.

    A few more important notes:

    • period: the first half of 2018 (01/01/2018 - 06/30/2018),
    • compared with the same period in 2017,
    • I searched all over Russia without being tied to cities,
    • archival and hidden vacancies and resumes are taken into account.

    Top 20 languages ​​by the number of vacancies (mention in any paragraph of the vacancy)

    As I wrote above, vacancies with names like “Python-developer” can be taken into account in the number of vacancies in JavaScript, if JS is mentioned somewhere in the body of such vacancies. JS and SQL in the statistics below are absolute leaders, since they are often indicated by others in addition with the “plus will be” mark. By the way, languages ​​are not all from the list here - for example, Solidity: a new thing for block and smart contracts, only 160 vacancies in the first half of 2018 (wages will be lower, there will be statistics on it).

    Top 20 languages ​​by the number of vacancies (mentioned in the title)

    Of course, we don’t have the rule “if you’re looking for a Java developer, write the name in the title,” so you can’t say that everything is there (i.e. there are no vacancies with the name “Senior backend developer” in this statistics at all). Total: 1C leader, second PHP (specificity of the domestic market?), Java next (Java job market is described here ).

    Change in the number of vacancies in relation to the previous year

    The ratio of the number of vacancies from the first schedule (where the language was searched throughout the vacancy) for the first half of 2017 (for the same period, the same search algorithm). It turned out that the demand for those who know in Kotlin increased by 7 times, and then there will be more.

    Top 20 languages ​​by number of summaries (mention in any paragraph of the summary)

    Important: resume! = Person, because everyone has the opportunity to create multiple resumes within the same applicant. However, about 100k applicants know SQL (well), as many as 1C know (only those who call themselves programmers are taken into account). A curious example: for two thousand vacancies with golang there are eight thousand developers.

    Top 20 programming languages ​​by number of resumes (mention in the title of the resume)

    Now only those resumes where the language is indicated in the title. 1C is again the leader, SQL is only the eighth (most often the main one is not, which can also be said about vb, R and, possibly, JS). PHP is not a leader (they don’t like to write about it in the title of a resume, apparently).

    Salaries descending

    Further two tables. With all the dislike for the tables, I don’t see any other way to show salaries. So, proposed (from vacancies) - without brackets, and expected (from resume) in brackets. Values ​​in thousands of rubles, median. Sorted in descending order. Scala, Solidity and Haskell absolute leaders in the proposed sn. At clojure in Petersburg and at fortran, “N / A” is everywhere indicated, which means that thirty vacancies (at least for analysis) with the specified salary were not found for them in 2018.

    Share of vacancies and resumes in Russia

    It is interesting here. The proportion of the total number is shown - for example, Moscow accounts for 41% of the total number of vacancies in Java and 39% of the resume (in brackets). Also sorted by descending proportion of Moscow. That's all. Questions are welcome. Thank! UPD: the number of vacancies was updated with mention of the 1C language.
