    I'm just surprised at how much they make. I wonder if because they tend to concentrate in high-cost cities.

    Great analysis of the industry ... and I agree with the other comments: lucrative and male dominated. Hopefully that second one will start to shift in the coming years.

    To me, it's particularly interesting that devOps is a male- dominated field, with almost 96% of those choosing to identify their gender were men.

    I'm also surprised about the age, "somewhere between the ages of 25 and 44"
    Quite young.

      The age doesn't surprise me, but only 4% female does.

        I wonder what is the reason, Gail...

          There are many reasons women choose not to work in certain fields. Sometimes it is the schedule or hours. Often it can be difficult for the first women entering an all male field. While some men are gentlemen, others create an environment that is exceedingly hostile. Given the choice, women will often leave positions because of this. Women are also likely to be promoted into middle management away from technical jobs.

    I was glad to see that one focus of the survey dealt with income as it relates to gender; unfortunately, the survey concludes (for a variety of reasons) that "it is problematic to use gender as a gauge for salary differences."

    This is sort of off topic. DevOps != data science.

    But I would love to see the same survey for technical marketers, growth hackers, and CMOs.

    85 percent of respondents expect their salary to increase in 2015 - nice :)

      Demand for qualified DevOps is going up and so are salaries - but only if you choose the right specialties. That is why downloading this data is such a good idea.
