This is one of the questions answered by the State Developer Nation survey from SlashData. Its 22nd edition was published in the middle of 2022, so we can compare the data with the current situation. The survey data covers the period from December 2021 to February 2022. More than 20,000 software developers from 166 countries took part in the survey. Therefore, the results reflect trends from all over the world.
Java concludes the top 3 by popularity. This language has existed for almost three decades but even so it records a stable increase in users every year. The reason is its versatility in software backend, Android applications development but also new uses in VR and AR.
The analysis of the collected data showed a leap in the popularity of Rust. It moved up two places from Q3 2021. Over the past two years, the group of developers using Rust has almost tripled.
Kotlin has also enjoyed an increase in the number of users. If we compare the data on its popularity from the current survey and the results from the same period last year, we will see that the number of its fans among software developers has more than doubled.
This is probably mainly due its choice by Google as the preferred language for the development of Android applications.
