Software Development is constantly evolving, adapting to changes in the industry, scientific and technical developments. Similarly, programmers also change and adapt to what they love in a unique way and in unusual ways to continue bringing improvements and add-on.
This year Apiumhub partnered up with codignsans and other software companies like: instabug, clutch, gitkraken, CloudBees, Cooperpress, CodeAnywhere, Clubhouse, Bugsee and took part in a global software development research to find out how companies attract software developers, what are the most popular languages, what are the most frequent challenges, etc.
Without Further wait, let’s begin.
