The annual Stack Overflow Developer’s Survey results are out with some interesting new takes this year. In particular, the Loved/Dreaded/Wanted chart is replaced with Admired and Desired which tries to compare previous users that want to keep using a technology ("admired") and those who want to use a technology in the year ahead ("desired"), and use the difference. This methodology seems a little dubious, but I’ll just note that Clojure is in the top 5 "admired" technologies, and Datomic was the 2nd most "admired" database. Clojure was again in the top 5 highest-paying technology (has been #1 in the past).
