Germany is the largest market for software in Europe. The country accounts for almost a quarter of the European software market by value, followed by the UK and France. Above all, tech start-ups, which have been sprouting up everywhere for several years (approx. 6,000 per year), ensure a high demand for qualified (full stack) developers.
Under these circumstances, how do you get IT professionals with the skills you need? Which programming languages should software developers master in 2022 and what are they looking for most? What is the distribution of languages used by developers internationally and in Germany?
Christof Schäfer, Lead Consultant Technology from Amoria Bond’s Cologne office, has the answers to all the biggest questions about trends in programming languages. Christof has been placing software developers with well-known international companies for four years and enjoys continuing his own professional and private education in this area. In this article, he gives a good overview of the general programming language trends of this year:
Which programming languages will be most prevalent in 2022?
But HTML and CSS are also essential in the frontend tech stack - the second most "spoken languages" among programmers, used by 56% of all developers. While HTML is not a programming language in the strict sense, it is used to represent the structure of data on pages - CSS, on the other hand, is a templating language that reflects the look and feel of a document written in HTML.
Which programming languages are currently in demand?
Which programming languages are on the rise?
Finally, modern programming languages that are not yet widely used are also experiencing a boom in 2022 and further in the future. Languages like Rust, Kotlin and Go benefit from expressiveness, conciseness, type inference and zero security, making them increasingly popular. For Rust, which is considered particularly secure, experts predict the final breakthrough later this year - as well as that it is destined for the further development of the IoT.
How do I find talented front and back-end developers?
If you are looking for software development professionals, you may have already discovered that this can be a difficult and lengthy process.
