Not much new info regarding future trend. Same old thing like JavaScript and web based work.

Over a quarter of the respondents were under 25.  I suspect that skews things quite significantly.

Anyone who's an adult would rapidly be disgusted by StackOverflow's censorship policy.  They are way too aggressive about closing questions they don't like.

I notice that they make a big deal that more than 80% of all developers use StackOverflow to answer technical questions.

It's not made completely clear though that this is 80% of people who were exclusively recruited through the website and through no other means, such as actual random sampling.

They push a narrative "Almost all developers use our site to get answers". The real narrative should be "Our site's users are such incompetent morons that 80% of them code by searching for answers on our site, then asking other people to do their coding for them. We are the legion of the dumb."
