Welcome from Build & Learn!
In May 2022 over 70,000 developers told us how they learn and level up, which tools they’re using, and what they want.
  • Developer Profile 
    • Education
    • Learning to code
    • Experience
    • Roles
    • Where
    • Who
  • Technologies 
    • Most loved
    • Most dreaded
    • Most wanted
    • Worked with vs Want to work with
    • Version Control
    • Web3
  • Work / Employment
  • Community
  • Professional Developers
Interesting Highlights
  • Daily time spent searching for answers/solutions - 60% spend 30-120 minutes a day
  • 88% of Professional Developers code outside of work, with 73% of them coding as a hobby.
  • 66% of Professional Developers have at least some influence over their organization’s purchases of new technologies. This is up from 56% in 2020 when we last asked this question. Unsurprisingly, senior-level positions have the greatest amount of influence when purchasing new technologies. But with the exception of students, at least 60% of all developer types have at least some influence on purchasing.
  • 85% of developers say their organizations are at least partially remote.
  • No other technology is as widely used as Git (93%). Especially among Professional Developers. But for those learning to code, 17% still do not use a version control system.
  • With Professional Developers, we see some interest in wanting to use chat and video platforms other than they are using now.
  • Ruby is 50/50 loved and dreaded
