Today I learned that there are 26.9 million software developers in the world as of 2020.

That's only 0.35% of the World Population. We're special guys!

    If you count other professions you could find even more "special" ones.

    If someone tells you that you are 'one in a million' this means there are approximately 7800 other people like you.

    Where are you getting your numbers?

    StackOverflow has estimated there are about 40 million developers in the world.

    I worked with 200+ dev teams and funny enough 80%+ devs I met. Are IMHO really bad at their job.

    Wish there were more quality than quantity.

    @KDSBest Every profession is like that. I heard a guy talk about that and talked about ways to not be part of that percentage. I don't remember what he said. I am DOOMED.

    0.35% of the world population are responsible for 100% of all bugs. I don't want to brag, but I'm responsible for at least a couple of thousand bugs myself. I'm doing my part, thank you very much!
