Python Developers Survey 2019 Wants Your Input

Python Software Foundation and JetBrains are again asking Python Developers to spending ten minutes contributing answers to a set of well constructed questions. This is the third edition of the survey and its results will undoubtedly provide a helpful overview of the Python landscape. 


The Python Developers Survey, conducted jointly by the Python Software Foundation and JetBrains, was inaugurated in 2017 and over 9,500 developers from almost 150 different countries participated. The second time around the survey attracted over 20,000 Pythonistas and the proportion for whom Python was the main language had risen from 79% to 84%. See Janet Swift's report Survey Results From More Python Developers.

As before the questions are framed to distinguish between those for who Python is their main language and those who use it as a secondary language and to identify the type of development you are mainly engaged in. 

Which version of Python you use is one of the key questions - of particular importance in view of the fact that January 1st 2019 is the date of end of support for Python 2.x. This is last year's findings: 


The survey looks at what other languages and what frameworks and additional technologies are being used alongside Python.  Choice of development environment is another topic covered with supplementary questions if you use PyCharm, JetBrain's offering that has both a free and a paid-for version.

As an incentive to take part, once the survey is over 100 winners will be chosen at random from among those who completed it in its entirety, and supplied their email addresses, to receive a Python Surprise Gift Pack. So whether you are a longstanding Python aficionado or a recent convert, head to Python Developers Survey 2019 and let your experience of Python be included in the next map of the Python ecosystem.
