I ran a java survey recently where I asked developers on tools/frameworks they used in the last 12 months. Respondents had the option to select multiple options from a predefined list of choices or select Others and provide their own choice. I received responses from around 120 developers and in this last post of this series we’ll be covering cloud providers.
