Ewa Jodlowska and Dmitry Filippov present the tabulated results of the Python Developers Survey. The survey’s goal was to identify the latest trends in Python and gather insight on how the Python development world looks today. The results illustrate a wide range of data about the current use and trajectory of the Python programming language.

Almost four out of five Python developers say it’s their main language, a four percent increase from 75% in JetBrains’ 2016 survey. Various research shows the number of Python developers, as well as the share of developers using Python as their main language, is growing steadily year by year. In Stack Overflow’s survey, Python popularity has increased from 32% in early 2017 to 38.8% at the end of the year. This can be explained by the rapidly growing popularity of Python for data science, as this segment of users is growing much faster than the others.

An interesting question in the survey was “What do you use Python for?”. The breakdown of responses:
