Jobs Tractor language trends April 2012

Slight drop in job numbers across the board in April

The gradual decline in jobs being advertised since January continues although possibly the April figures were affected by Easter. We'll have to see if numbers recover next month or continue the trend.

Apart from that April saw very little change in the rankings. Java and PHP traded places again and Objective-C continued to be a strong 3rd place. held it's position with 941 jobs in April (up from 837 in February). Android was this months loser though dropping from 4th to 5th position, behind SQL.
