Some 28 per cent of respondents to the Stack Overflow survey identified themselves as full stack developers, while 8.4 per cent said they were mobile developers and 5.8 per cent front-end web developers.
The 'Losers' list is led by the doomed Windows Phone and, surprisingly, last year's darling the functional programming language Haskell. Meanwhile, the most 'loved' list is headed by Rust, a C/C++-based language designed for concurrency by Mozilla, and Apple's Swift, a must-have for developers of iPhone apps.
Business stalwart Java maintains a healthy showing throughout, but its contemporary C++ seems to be faring less well, featuring prominently on the 'Losers' list along with fellow old-timers Objective C and Perl.
Unsurprisingly, the survey shows a marked slant towards mobile and web development.
"Newer web-development technologies like React, Node.js and AngularJS are growing in use. So is Swift, which is stealing market share from Objective C," said Stack Overflow.
"Developers appear to be dropping CoffeeScript, Haskell and Windows Phone. And, although the survey showed that many developers want out of Visual Basic and Wordpress, those technologies don't seem to be shrinking quite yet."
