Our friends over at StackShare recently reached out to insideBIGDATA to provide their latest Database Index. To compile the StackShare Database Index, StackShare — one of the world’s largest developer communities, with 100,000+ CTOs and developers at companies like Spotify, Airbnb, Instacart, and Dropbox sharing and discussing their tech stacks — conducted original research on which databases are most widely used right now, and which are most in-demand by recruiters.

Drawing upon StackShare’s community of developers, the StackShare Database Index measures the number of tech stacks that feature each database, and the number of job openings that require knowledge of each database. In addition, new graduates and anyone looking for a new job can use the index to decide which programs and skills to learn.
