Programming languages and frameworks associated with DevOps and machine learning are on the rise, and developers working in these areas garner the highest salaries, according to a Stack Overflow survey of more than 100,000 developers around the world.

The survey found DevOps specialists and engineering managers have the highest salaries in the field, averaging between $70,000 and $90,000 a year worldwide.

In addition, the survey showed DevOps specialists and developers who code for desktop and enterprise applications have the most experience, with an average of eight years of professional coding under their belts.

When asked about their most "loved" and "dreaded" platforms for development, 71 percent of respondents identified their most loved platform as Linux, while 72 percent of respondents said their most dreaded platform was SharePoint.

Python was found to be the fastest-growing programming or scripting language currently in use, and JavaScript was the most commonly used programming language for the sixth year in a row.
