Developer Economics 13th edition is a large-scale online developer survey designed, produced and carried out by SlashData over a period of nine weeks between April and June 2017. The survey reached an impressive 21,200+ respondents from 157 countries around the world. As such, the Developer Economics series continues to be the most global independent research on mobile, desktop, IoT, cloud, web, game, AR/VR and machine learning developers and data scientists combined ever conducted. Respondents to the online survey came from 157 countries, including major app, machine learning and IoT development hotspots such as the US, China, India, Israel, UK and Russia and stretching all the way to Kenya, Brazil and Jordan. The geographic reach of this survey is truly reflective of the global scale of the developer economy. The online survey was translated into seven languages in addition to English (simplified Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese) and promoted by 82 leading community and media partners within the software development industry.
