What/How/Why Do Software Developers Want To Learn In 2019

With the massive growth of technology and the internet, where and how developers study and learn has, of course, evolved quite a bit. For this reason, we’ve been regularly surveying developers about how, why, what, and where they learn. Our clients (namely mid and large technology companies) need to understand this in order to keep their developers productive, happy, and present (ie not poached away by competitors)

Our Survey Background

Our 2013 Developer Learning Survey Report was one of the first in the industry to survey enterprise-level software developers and used the results to suggest actions employers could take to make their learning and training better.

But we aren’t the only people interested in developer learning. Organizations like StackOverflow, HackerRank, JetBrains and Stripe have also been studying developer learning and training.

There is now a lot of good data out there about developer learning and technology needs in the last 1-2 years. For this report, we are going to synthesize and summarize other organization’s data (along with ours) with the goal of helping enterprises understand developer learning, training, and technology needs in 2019. With this knowledge, we hope companies will create even better work environments and training plans that help developers learn and thrive.

topquotes   
Good engineers like to solve problems, so if they don’t feel like they’re being challenged, that’s an issue. Beyond compensation, they want the opportunity to learn new things and to grow within their career. And if they don’t feel like they’re growing in their roles, they leave.
