0:00 Let's round out this chapter by coming back to an old friend, Stack Overflow. We saw Stack Overflow has that cool graphs
0:07 about languages and demand interest in just interacting with languages. They also have this thing called Stack Overflow Careers
0:14 and if you go there, you can ask how many jobs you have that are Java jobs or Python jobs or Rust. This graph looks surprisingly different
0:23 compared to Indeed, but you know, that's fine. Multiple data sources give you more perspective. It surprised me how low .NET was
0:31 on the Stack Overflow Careers. Right now, there's 253 open positions there. I kind of expected it to be higher because Stack Overflow originated
0:39 as almost a pure C# .NET space. Whatever, make whatever out of that whatever you want. Then we have C++ is a little bit higher this time
0:48 instead of lower than .NET. Over in Java, we have Java winning the race here. Java's over a thousand. But Python, while not beating Java this time
0:57 you know, it's still kind of neck and neck. It's up there with Java. And then Rust, yeah, Rust is even less represented here.
1:04 I think, for example, there's 80 times the number of Python jobs instead of just 50. Either way, Rust is way, way, way down there. What do you think?
1:13 What do you make of these numbers? Certainly there's two major takeaways here that I think are clear. There are many, many Python jobs available
1:21 and that probably means there are many, many Python developers out there. Second, Python developers are paid pretty well.
1:28 When we compared it against all those different languages on Indeed, they were at least comparable
1:31 if not even a little bit higher than all of the others. That's the Python job and hiring space.
