A survey by online recruitment firm Hired delved into the love/hate relationships between software engineers and coding languages, examining the number of interview requests received by a job seeker listing expertise with a given language during the two to six weeks the seeker was available through Hired.
Google's Go language was the global leader, likely because Go developers are scarce; Scala was ranked second in terms of employer desire, and just 3% of polled developers listed it as their primary language.
Hired also determined software engineers favored Python the most, and liked PHP the least, while Java was listed as both the third most-loved and the second most-hated programming language.
Key drivers of language like or dislike among engineers included difficulty, and associated learning and development resources.
