Surveying Brazilian IT Companies on Their Preferred Programming Languages
The headquarters’ distribution follows a logic. The biggest technology centers are based in the South (Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, and Paraná states) and Southeast (São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, and Espírito Santo states) Regions of Brazil.
The South Region represent 23.33% of the answers, the Southeast Region, 66.25%. It means that, together, they sum almost 90% of the answers.
There is strong evidence that remote work has not been fully adopted yet since only near 8% of the respondents work in this arrangement. However, 39.17% of them work in companies that have both policies remote and on-site. Probably, due to Digital Transformation, this number has increased. The number of on-site workers still is high, as they represent 52.5% of the answers.
Tools & Practices
The data showed that 81.65% of the respondents work in a company with Code Review, although 75.42% work with features branches. Unit tests are a usual practice (68.33%) among respondents, and the number of practitioners is pretty similar to CI/CD (63.75%) adopters.
Most of the respondents told that in their companies, they have both manual and automated test suites. A considerably high number of answers (27.92%) say that Brazilian companies still tend to test code before deploy manually. The most interesting information, though, is that almost 7% of research respondents work in companies that don’t test.
