In our 2017 Developer Survey, Python overtook PHP in our ranking of popular technologies for the first time in five years, with 32% of respondents reporting they use Python in their work. It was also among the top 10 “Most Loved” technologies and it was the #1 technology developers reported wanting to use in their work.
Python ranked high across our surveyed occupations, and it’s used regularly by web developers, desktop developers, sysadmin/devops, and Data Scientists/Engineers. While pay for Python hovered around the middle of the field in the U.S. and worldwide, it was the top-paying technology in France and Germany.
