We now have four European regional reports live, based on data from Stack Overflow’s annual Developer Survey. This survey is the largest and most comprehensive survey of people who code globally, and Europe was the most represented region on our survey this year. Companies in Europe and around the world use findings from this resource to reach, attract, hire, and support developers. This year marks the ninth year we’ve published our annual survey, covering topics including favorite technologies, job preferences, and salary. Thousands of European developers took the 20-minute survey earlier this year.

Although our survey has a broad reach and capacity for informing valuable conclusions, the opinions of people who code can vary based on demographics, geography, seniority, and other factors. Look for where we offer results summarized by such factors, especially for developers from underrepresented groups in tech. 

Check out some highlights from across the reports:

United Kingdom and Ireland

  • Developers in the UK, Ireland, and Europe overall tend to have started coding younger than elsewhere in the world.
  • Compared to the rest of the world, Microsoft SQL Server is much more popular in the UK and Ireland while Oracle and Firebase are much less.
