Last year iTWire surveyed the landscape as the year began, and we're keen to see what’s stayed the same and what’s changed as we start 2022.
Despite this, Rust remains the most loved language by developers, while coming in only at 16th place for languages in use, ahead of Ruby, Dart, and Assembly. So, Rust looks to have a lot of affection amongst its users, but not quite winning the world over for commercial use.
Of course, besides those surveys, there's another important metric of the languages, tools, and platforms you should be looking at, and that is open vacancies on Seek. Despite what the global community says, these are the real opportunities right now in Australia and shows the C family of languages is still important in this region, but SQL dominates, demonstrating the rising importance of data science, analytics, machine learning, and more.
So, this is it - the list of technologies most in-demand in Australia right now, with these positions advertised over December.
If you're looking to take up a new programming language or tool in 2022 take advantage of these data points to help inform your decisions. And good luck!
