One that stood out was databases. In the media, one hears more and more about NoSQL databases like Cassandra, Dynamo & Firebase. Despite all that MySQL seems to remain the most popular database by a large margin. Legacy indeed!
MySQL is still the most popular db by a large margin 56%. Followed by SQL Server 39%, SQLite 27% and Postgres 27%.
