@MCII: Churchill once said: "Never trust a statistic you didn't fake yourself!". I'm only here to present the tool, not to preach facts. Everyone should make up their minds about the results and maybe even come up with different ones. I had hoped to use it as a starting point for a discussion about the skills needed in the work market today and in the future.
I don't understand how you did get your datas from indeed.com as it is just a search engine.
I'm not dev but a PM and I really doubt that C++ is more in demand than PHP.
If you can show me how you did collect the datas, I would find the statistics more interesting and trustable.
If you click on the diagramm, you can see the query I have used.
OK thank you, I didn't see it comes directly from indeed.com. But I wouldn't trust the way they aggregate their stats, I know about so called "Business Intelligence" tools, there's actually no real intelligence behind and unknowledgeable people just aggregate pears with orange.
It can give some clues but you still have to use your own judgement to discard non-sense. PHP well below C++ seems a non-sense to me.
I think they simply aggregate if a term appears in a job description or not. I don't see any magic behind that. But you are right that everyone should make up their own mind about the results.
PHP below C++ - I don't know. But I think there is a big world besides web-development. Just think about all the embedded development...
