swiss developer survey

swiss developer survey

The swiss developer survey  is designed to assess the current trends, attitudes and general observations among the Swiss software engineering community.

We hope to generate results that will serve as Switzerland's tech barometer.

All software developers working for Swiss companies either within or outside Switzerland are warmly invited to participate, regardless of nationality.

swiss developer survey 2023

The results of the swiss developer survey 2023 are live and accessible with the help of our new interactive tool. The application language is English, a summary of the results can be found here in three languages:

>Summary of the results

The survey provides a deep insight into the composition of people working in the Swiss software industry - both technically and personally.

Personal: Who are we - the Swiss techie community? The developers provide information about themselves, their education and technical skills. They also provide information about the things that are important when choosing a job: Environment or salary, technologies used or career development.

Technical: Programming languages, frameworks, databases and tools - the things that actually determine the day-to-day work of Swiss developers - are evaluated from different perspectives. What do developers like, what do they use and what do they want to get rid of? Beyond marketing hype, it becomes clear what is used on the customer front.

Many thanks to the more than 800 developers who took part once again. This would not be possible without your help!
