[Infographic] The latest trends on developer tools, skills and salaries.

We recently announced the  State of the Developer Nation Q1 2017 report which is based on the 12th edition Developer Economics survey, which took a 360° on developer tools, skills and salaries. The report sheds light on current developer trends based on responses from over 21,200 developers globally, across multiple research areas including Cloud, Mobile, IoT, Desktop, Web, Augmented & Virtual Reality, and Machine Learning.

For the first time in the history of Developer Economics, VisionMobile asked developers how much they earn in salaries and contractor fees, to explore what projects and types of development are more lucrative around different locations. What’s more, the report uncovers how technology battles continue on the web front with Angular vs React Javascript, Amazon Web Services is in a price war with their public cloud competitors, the IoT market is underdeveloped and highly fragmented, and Machine Learning developers are striving to identify what is the ideal programming language to use.

Check out our infographic on some of the many interesting  insights from  the State of the Developer Nation Q1 2017 report.
