Stack Overflow was responsible for a survey conducted at the beginning of 2020 with the help of around 65,000 people.
This annual survey aims to provide data about the community of programmers who use the platform regularly, namely regarding the technologies they use most and like to use.
This latest survey sought greater diversity and addressed issues such as the importance of education in the IT area and what are the priorities at work.
Importance of formal education
Although the majority of respondents do not consider formal training as extremely important, about 75% of respondents have at least a bachelor’s degree or higher.
This is the result obtained in the top 3 factors that users consider most important in a professional challenge. However, if we analyse only the answers from women, the work environment and organizational culture move to the first place with 48.3%, followed by the flexible schedule with 45.6% and finally the languages, frameworks and technologies with 41.8%.
And finally, did you know that most respondents (19.2%) wrote their first line of code between the ages of 14 and 15? And that 18.9% of the results reveal that users wrote their first line of code at age 11 or younger?
