Jobs Tractor language trends October 2012

Slight rebound in jobs in October

The slight drop in the number of jobs advertised over the summer has rebounded a bit up to 11k jobs in October. I think we can safely put that down to the summer holidays ending. We will have to see what impact the Christmas break has on the stats.

Apart from that, the usual suspects traded places. PHP continues to hold the top spot and Android skills still fail to seriously challenge the Objective C market.
