These questions were shown only to the developers who chose C as one of their three primary programming languages.
The percentage of the developers who don’t write unit tests for C remains the same as last year. It’s still nearly half.
Makefile’s share has grown significantly since last year. CLion’s support for Makefile has also improved a lot over the last year. For example, it became available in remote mode and run/debug configurations can now be created automatically from the top-level Makefile targets.
The share of C developers relying on the system package manager is growing. This trend is the complete opposite of what's happening in the C++ ecosystem.
