Jobs Tractor language trends July 2012

Numbers holding steady

The number of jobs advertised is holding steady compared to June with 12972 developer jobs in total advertised. However, the number for the individual skills are down. I've done a few spot checks to make sure the spam is still being filtered accurately and all seems fine. Possibly this is just a blip in the data set.

Python holding steady whilst others slip

Most of the action this month was at the bottom end of the table as Python held steady just over 100 jobs whilst C++ and ActionScript fell down the table. Towards the top there was the usual trading of places as Android just beat out SQL to the number four spot. Still a long way behind Objective C though, maybe all those nexus 7 sales will fuel the jobs market?
