This report provides data and insights into trends that allow you to estimate the addressable market for Internet of Things technologies, in terms of the number of developers using such technology. We split IoT developers by their professional involvement, involvement in developing hardware or firmware, vertical market, level of influence in purchasing decisions, geography, as well as their use of programming languages and specific IoT technologies.
In this report, we look at which AR and VR platforms developers have currently adopted as of Q2 2017, as well as which platforms they expect to adopt in 2018. We also asked them how fast they expect the hardware market to develop. That is to say, how quickly do they think that the currently dominant smartphone viewers will be replaced by dedicated, untethered headsets. We look at these issues for Augmented and Virtual Reality separately, as well as for professional developers in each space separately.
This report provides data and insights on trends that allow you to estimate the addressable market for backend technologies, in terms of the number of developers using such technology. We measure the global population of active software developers, including serious hobbyists and students, who self-identify as being involved in backend services. We split backend developers by their professional involvement, use of public cloud services, level of influence in purchasing decisions, geography, as well as their use of programming languages and specific backend technologies.
What our clients are saying about our research
This report is certainly a wake-up call. It shows a European app economy worth hundreds of thousands of jobs, and generating billions of euros a year. That's not bad for an economy that, 5 years ago, didn't even exist.

Andreas and the VisionMobile team did a first class job bringing new insights that helped connect our API management strategy to the world of mobile and app developers. We worked together to drive some webinars and a poster that captured our value props. Lots of fun.

That's actually the second time i download [The State of the Developer Nation]. I think it's a very comprehensive material with some real data on monetisation and profitability of apps and IoT services.

Your data is absolutely critical to our developer program decisions. You can't argue with 20,000 developers.
