StackOverflow released the results of their annual developers’ survey last month. In this survey about 70,000 developers shared which technologies, frameworks & tools they’re using, and what they want. I just got some time to read this survey. I’ve read through the results of the StackOverflow survey and compiled the most interesting results related to Technologies right here in this article.

Let’s compare the technologies by categories.
Node.js is the most popular Web Framework & React.js is 2nd now. JQuery is back in the List. Flask went down but Next.js is gaining popularity. No major change in the position of ASP.Net & Laravel position.
MySQL is still the winner. But If we look closely the difference between MySQL & PostgreSQL is just 3% now from 10% in 2021. So PostgreSQL popularity is increasing.
Clojure is the highest paying Technology but Erlang gained some popularity & got 2nd position. On the other hand, Perl dropped a few positions.
Rust is the most Loved Programming language. Elixir got 2nd position this year. No other major change in the list as compared to previous year.
Poenix is the Most Loved Web Framework of 2022. Next.js is increasing in popularity as the most Loved Framework whereas ASP.NET Core dropped 2 positions.
Hugging Face Transformers is leading the list of Most Loved Frameworks in 2022.
Rust is the most wanted language in 2022 with the jump of 4 steps. Kotlin also gained some popularity in the list.
React.js is the winner again & Node.js is 2nd most wanted web framework. Next.js was not even in the top 10 list in 2021 but is now at number 4. That is good news for Next.js developers.
No change in TensorFlow position but I have already discussed above the emerging Flutter that has crossed React-Native.
