The data science (DS), machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligence (AI) field is adapting and expanding. From the ubiquity of data science in driving business insights, to AI’s facial recognition and autonomous vehicles, data is fast becoming the currency of this century. This post will help you to learn more about this data and the profile of the developers who work with it.
The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the way people work and learn across industries, and developers are no exception to that.

Cloud-native applications need cloud-native databases to achieve the next stage of maturity and scale, but what is a cloud-native database? Let’s try to define what it means and figure out how it relates to Kubernetes.
In the nearly fifteen years since Amazon AWS cracked open the cloud market by releasing S3 – and changed the world by doing so – there has been huge growth in the variety of cloud solutions available for developers to use. We examine the different reasons that developers give for adopting or rejecting cloud technologies. The findings shared in this post are based on the Developer Economics survey 19th edition which ran during June-August 2020 and reached more than 17,000 developers in 159 countries.
Open-source software (OSS) is used by 92% of developers, so what exactly do they value in it?

We highlight some uncertainty around OSS’s future by showing trends from geographic regions and sectors.
Working and performing during a pandemic is an experience that will undoubtedly leave deep marks behind, both financially and psychologically speaking. We asked developers which to technical and non-technical needs the pandemic has created for their own development activities. 73% of developers reported having additional needs due to COVID-19. 7.2 million developers expressed their need for flexible working hours/workload.
