The Top IT Skills Report 2022 by DevSkiller recorded a 295% increase in the number of data science-related tasks recruiters were setting for candidates in the interview process during 2021.

This, in turn, fuelled the growth of Python, a programming language popular within data science and machine-learning applications, demand for which grew by 154%.

The number of tasks related to data science and Python in DevSkiller's coding tests grew in 2021 by 158.33% and 113.33% respectively, says DevSkiller CEO Jakub KubryƄski.

While data science was the fastest-growing area of expertise sought by recruiters, Java and SQL remain the most in-demand IT skills, according to DevSkiller's analysis.
