This news comes from the International Tech Careers and Salary Index just released by Gooroo, a tech career site. This first in a series of quarterly reports is based on more than 3 million tech job listings in the U.S., Great Britain and Australia from January through September, 2014 It’s chock full of information on various tech careers, roles and skills, including trends in average salaries and job demand.
While the news is generally really good for developers working in just about any language, the Gooroo index did have some negative news for some languages. C++ showed the largest drop in demand in Q3 (more than 20%), while C and PHP also experienced significant drops in demand. However, Joseph warned me not to read too much into these decreases since demand for some of these skills may be more cyclical than others.
