Stackoverflow Dev Survey 2019

Hello! The other day, the results of Stackoverflow Dev Survey 2019 became available . The survey involved 90K developers from all over the world, which makes the data not only an interesting reading matter for discussion with colleagues, but also a good source of analytics for professional discussion.

Below are some interesting metrics that caught your attention while reading. Some really make you think:

  • Programming is a hobby for the majority of respondents (80.2%). Spending a few hours a day on professional literature and publishing has long been the norm. Bad news for everyone who decided to move in this direction only for financial reasons.

    It is unlikely that they will spend so much “free time”. But without this, there is no way.

  • The most important factors when choosing a job: stack, culture, free schedule and the possibility of professional growth. Another confirmation that for IT the main thing is team and development. Everything else is less interesting. And the money is almost the same everywhere. If you want a cool team, create a culture that allows you to develop.

  • Open for new job offers - 58.7% It seems that the techniques of “tapping” employees will not die very soon.

  • Last time I changed jobs less than a year ago 32.4% Staff turnover in IT 30% is the norm of the market, not the bad work of the HR department.

  • Constantly updates the resume 42.8%. In order not to forget. Well, do not let the employer relax. Cookies, fitness and massage in the office by themselves will not appear.

  • More than half (51.9%) of developers are already full-stack (or at least they consider themselves as such). The similar term full-stack itself has already begun to change its original meaning and more and more means a person familiar with all the major platforms, and not someone who can effectively use them in everyday work.

  • Only 3/4 of all respondents work at full-time (73.9%). It seems Toffler was right. At least for IT, his forecasts are already a reality.

  • 8.7% wrote the first line of code under 10 years old. Programming is second literacy.

  • The most popular social. Media among developers: Reddit (17.0%), YouTube (16.4%), WhatsApp (15.8%), Facebook (15.6). Some monopoly is clearly visible.

  • Does the developer need to become a manager to earn more: NO - 51.3%. Opinions are divided. Salary statistics on the labor market stubbornly show that we are moving in the right direction. At least in the market of the Russian Federation and the CIS.
