Software development status quo - 1: general insights (as of February 2016)

In this post I will select some results from surveys/studies/reports/statistics about the state of software development.
The intent of this post is to help developers understanding what is happening around them, and what are technology trends so that they can adapt and keep competitive.
For shared or different results between resources, I selected a single resource as a reference and let other results to readers to find differences themselves.
