“It’s worth noting that Stack Overflow enjoys 50 million monthly visitors and is widely regarded as (arguably) a serious and trusted resource by many programmers due to the peer-sharing nature."
When software developers interact with content on Stack Overflow, our proprietary machine learning platform tracks their behavior over time — specifically, which technologies are tagged on the content and their IP address. This allows us to show, in granular detail, what technologies programmers are using, and how many there are at a city-by-city level. Since more than 95% of professional-grade developers in the English-speaking world use Stack Overflow, the resulting data amounts to a developer census.We supplement these site analytics with analysis of Stack Overflow user profiles and data from the Stack Overflow Annual Developer Survey in order to provide a complete picture of the developer landscape.
With over 50 million visitors every month, Stack Overflow is the world’s largest website for developers. They use Stack Overflow to find answers to their programming questions, share knowledge, and advance their careers. We offer employers a full-stack technical recruitment platform, which helps them understand, attract and hire developers.
Founded in 2008 by Joel Spolsky and Jeff Atwood, Stack Overflow works to serve and enrich the developer community at large. For more information, visit: www.stackoverflowbusiness.com/uk/talent
