The year 2020 recorded the highest increase in the number of software developers globally, with a recorded 14 million in number. This is against the 12 million total number of developers recorded in 2016, which significantly increases. EvansData has estimated a total of 2,8 million iOS developers and 5,9 million Android developers worldwide. It was against 6 million .NET developers recorded in 2004, with most of them said to be using C#.
But the same cannot be said about C++ software developers who seem to be dominating the developer's airspace with an established 4.4 million developers. Today, the number has slightly increased to 5.4 million and expected to experience continuous growth as the software market continues to experience steady growth. But it seems that Python developers are already working on dominating the scene with established worldwide domination of 7 million population in 2018 (according to SlashData), and it has been said that it is gradually becoming more popular than Java lately.
