Hello DZone Community!
2023 was certainly an exciting year for us here at DZone, and I hope it was filled with lots of love, laughter, and learning for you as well! One of the coolest things we did during the year was our latest DZone Community Survey! At DZone, our community is the heart and soul of who we are and what we do. We literally would not exist without each and every one of you, and the strength of our community is what sets us apart and makes us the go-to resource for developers around the world.
And as with any relationship, the best way to grow and improve is to learn more about each other. That was our goal with the 2023 DZone Community Survey: to learn more about you, our community, so we can better serve you content that is relevant, helpful, and engaging for you while continuing to build the best platform on the planet for software developers to grow, connect, and share knowledge.
We learned quite a lot about our community from the survey, and I wanted to share some of the highlights with you:
- Java is still the most dominant language, with Python being a close second.
- AI and applications for automating code processes are the topics of greatest interest.
- 90% of respondents prefer to learn through online communities like DZone and StackOverflow.
This is just a small preview of what we learned, but what this means for you is that Java and AI content is continuing to see a lot of engagement on DZone, and AI specifically will be a hot topic to discuss on the site this year. (Read: If you’re looking for a topic to write about, Java and AI would be a great place to start.) It also reiterates why DZone is such a great place for developers to gather and share knowledge.
We also saw some interesting changes from our last survey in 2020, such as nearly double the number of respondents working at the C-suite level and that 60% of you have a significant impact on the technology your company purchases and implements. We love that the DZone community is filled with so many expert, experienced developers. The level of knowledge here is unmatched, so when you add your voice to the conversation, you know you’re in strong company.
In conclusion, we’re really excited about the results of our 2023 Community Survey, mainly because what we learned will help us continue to improve the content and experience we provide on DZone. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate everyone who took the time to respond to our survey, and we look forward to the 2024 DZone Community Survey!
Thank you and Happy New Year!
