LinkedIn’s Technology Trends & Compensation Study Australia - India Report for 2009 was released recently. You may download the PDF from here. Apart from various trends, I found a couple for slides with a mention of Eclipse too.
1. Eclipse is the 4th most popular development tool.
I was expecting Eclipse to be in top 5 so being number 4 is not so disappointing. I feel some of the survey participants might have counted Eclipse under 'Other open source dev tools' which is at number 2.
2. 46% developers 'very satisfied' with Eclipse.
Eclipse got second highest votes for 'very satisfied'. Surprisingly second to Apple!! What can I say. May be because I don't have a iPhone :-) But even more shocking was SAP better than Apple and Eclipse in average scores. Now I have seen only one SAP application and that sucks bad. Perhaps they really are doing a fantastic job.
Since the report from Australia-India geo its a partial view. Am sure this pictures differs a lot from the one at global level.
