Stathis Georgakopoulos · November 07, 2019

The data from our latest Developer Economics survey give all the answers in the recently published State of the Developer Nation Q2 2019 report, which – as always-  is now available for free download

What’s new in the dev world? 

The report highlights the latest insights from the developer ecosystem, based on responses from 19,000+ software developers of all profiles: professionals, hobbyists and students, working across all major areas: mobile, web, desktop, cloud, IoT, AR/VR, games, machine learning & data science. It focuses on 6 themes:

  1. (NEW) Developer psychographics: how do developers perceive themselves? 37% see themselves as introverts and only 4% describe themselves as being able to make a killer cocktail.
  2. Programming language communities: Is JavaScript getting comfortable on its throne? Updated estimates of the number of active software developers using each of the major programming languages
  3. Emerging Technologies: What turns interest into adoption?
  4. Game Streaming: Developing for live-streaming. Are we there yet?
  5. Third-party platforms and ecosystems: App developers are unlikely to work solely on one third party platform. 
  6. Mobile cross-platforms frameworks: Mobile development has matured enough to embrace cross-platform frameworks, allowing building apps that can run on multiple platforms.
