A few months ago we highlighted here the growing popularity of the language Swift, and new research by the Stack Overflow shows that Apple is really going the right way with it.
The survey brings many interesting data, including a ranking of the languages "most loved" by developers. And see who appears at the top:
Yes, Swift followed by C ++ 11 and Rust. Apple's language is also the 9 most sought after.
Among the desktop operating systems used by developers, Windows 7 leads with 33.8%, followed by OS X with 21.5% and Linux with 20.5%. Speaking of mobile development, Android is the most popular with 44.6%, followed by iOS with 33.4%.
The complete survey is very interesting and was attended by more than 26 thousand people in 157 different countries.
