August 2014 - Tracking the most popular programming languages, databases and software development tools in whoishiring discussion threads.
It was last August when I began this project, and now that I've been watching these trends for a year, it's interesting to see what has changed in software, and what things remain the same. There have been breakout technologies like AngularJS and Docker that have seen rapid rises, along with more nebulous terms such as DevOps and Machine Learning that are becoming common place in postings.
I'm mostly a web guy myself, so I've always kept an eye on the web stack. Rails and node.js have consistently battled to be King of the web over the past year, and this month marks a significant milestone with node edging Rails for the first time. For all the buzz that Rails and node generate though, PHP is still hanging with them.
Enough reflection for now, let's take a look at some of the common groups of terms:
|Tech||Rank||Last Month||Change||Last Year||Change|
|Tech||Mentions||Rank||Last Year Mentions||Last Year Rank||Change|
