The answer, according to a new survey, is…
Python developer salary.
In a survey conducted by the Python developer forum, more than half of the respondents chose Python developer salaries, while less than half said they would consider hiring an experienced Python developer.
It’s a striking trend, as more people are choosing Python developers who can work in a diverse range of fields.
And it’s not just the high-profile Python developers whose salaries have increased.
Another survey found that there’s been a sharp rise in Python developers’ paychecks over the past five years, as well as the salaries of Python developers overall.
What’s interesting is that, for Python developers, the survey showed that the average salary has increased by an average of 1,638% since 2006.
That means Python developers have seen their salaries double since 2010.
This raises the question: Why?
As Python developer, what’s the appeal of Python?
In my view, the answer lies in its simplicity.
When it comes to the way Python is used and developed, it’s easy to see why Python is so popular: it’s an expressive language that lets you write programs that perform incredibly well, and it has a wide range of useful libraries to help you get the most out of it.
In other words, Python is a very versatile programming language.
And that versatility lets Python developers do incredible things.
Python has a strong community, which is why developers are drawn to it, and because it’s such a powerful programming language, it has some of the best documentation available anywhere.
There’s no other language in the world that comes close to the breadth and depth of documentation in Python.
And yet, Python developers are paid less than other developers.
This makes sense when you consider that Python is still very young in its development cycle.
Python’s developer community is still young, and its development cycles are still a bit longer than other languages.
This means that it takes a long time for a new version of a language to gain traction in the community, and developers are still learning the language and the tools.
That makes it tough to compare Python to other languages, because it takes time for Python to become widely used.
That being said, the fact that Python developers earn significantly less than their counterparts in other languages does not mean that they’re being paid less.
In fact, in some cases, the gap in pay is more than double.
The Python developer community as a whole has an average salary of about $150,000 a year, which makes it one of the highest paid fields in the industry.
That’s more than twice as much as the average developer salary for developers in other fields.
What does that mean for Python’s future?
The biggest benefit of hiring Python developers is that it will help Python continue to grow in the years to come.
As the language continues to mature and grow, Python will continue to have an even larger user base.
The fact that it’s used by millions of developers around the world will mean that Python will remain one of those languages that will be used for years to follow.
As programmers who use Python, it will be our job to maintain the community and ensure that Python continues to be used by developers everywhere.
