All I can say is that it’s good to be interested in web technologies
What interests me is the percent of people having more than 20 years experience is the largest, which is cool.
That really blew my mind but I suppose it explains why so many people on Stackoverflow are so knowledgeable and experienced. Also what really blew my mind is that 1% of respondents were blind. Amazing.
The 20 years of experience number surprised me as well! I think that is great to see given that some of us here will be hitting that mark soon (if we haven’t already haha)
Some good Data.
- Would of liked to see # of hours worked a week on average.
- I was saddened by the continued low % of females.
- Funny that VB flavors made 3 of the top 4 dreaded languages.
- A bit surprised Brackets didn’t make the list, Atom by contrast did pretty well.
- Rather shocked Freelances are so low?
I was surprised by the blindness statistic as well. According to the WHO, about 0.5% of the species is blind, so I guess it seems reasonable (though even that seems high in my unscientific experience). Hard to imagine a programmer without sight.
Once you meet someone using a screen reader or learn about the tools they use, it shouldn’t be hard to imagine anymore. Check out things like VoiceOver, WebAnywhere (something I worked on), or this article that talks about how people were excited for accessibility in Swift Playgrounds.
Until you see/hear it in action. Proper accessibility is laughable in most of the internet. At least if you have a blind developer working for you, your own accessibility should be up to scratch.
