“The ‘love-hate’ languages ​​of developers are JavaScript and Java”

Published last week by JetBrains ‘State of the Developer Ecosystem’ reportAccording to , JavaScript and Java scored highly in both favorite and least favorite programming languages.

As a result of the 2022 Developer Ecosystem Survey, JavaScript and Java (based on the response value) were ranked as the favorite programming languages ​​(Java 2nd, JavaScript 3rd) and the most hated programming languages ​​(JavaScript 1st, Java 2nd) done.

Based on the number of developers who said they are currently using, the developers’ favorite languages ​​were ▲Kotlin, ▲C#, ▲Python, ▲Rust, and ▲Java. Based on the response values, regardless of whether they were used or not, they were ▲Python, ▲Java, ▲Javascript, ▲C#, and ▲Kotlin.

The most disliked language was surveyed as ▲JavaScript, ▲Java, ▲PHP, ▲C, ▲C++ based on the response value. Based on actual users, perl took the top spot with a whopping 96%. Visual Basic, Delphi, C, and PHP followed.

When asked which programming language they had used in the past 12 months, 65% of respondents said JavaScript. TypeScript, a strongly typed JavaScript developed by Microsoft, appears to be growing the fastest. TypeScript’s share has tripled over the past six years, rising from 12% in 2017 to 34% in 2022.

So, will TypeScript replace JavaScript? Although TypeScript is catching up quickly with JavaScript, JavaScript’s share is still high. 92% of TypeScript developers said they use JavaScript. Additionally, 75% of all survey respondents said they were involved in web development (66% for backend web development).

Meanwhile, the 6th Annual Report, released this week, was written based on the results of a survey of 29,269 developers around the world from May to July 2022. Other research findings include:

  • One in two developers said they plan to adopt the new language. Go and Rust were the most mentioned new languages, followed by Kotlin, TypeScript, and Python.
  • Developers cited AI/ML as the most promising technology and Rust as the most promising programming language.
  • Python’s position as the second most used programming language continues to strengthen. It overtook Java as the primary language in use, narrowing the gap with JavaScript (JavaScript 33%, Python 32%, Java 31%).
  • Unsurprisingly, the operating systems most often used to deploy development environments were Windows (86%), macOS (39%), and Linux (56%).
