Cloud computing has emerged from its back-end, client/server roots, to create paradigms of its own. Processing on demand enables disruptive competitors to capitalise on success, without the huge investments they would once have needed, and standardised platforms are making cloud development easier than ever before.
In this report we look in detail at the cloud developer communities, seeing motivations map to tools and business models, providing an insight into what applications they are creating and how they are creating them.

Developer Economics 10th edition reached an impressive 21,000+ respondents from 150 countries around the world. As such, it is the most global research on mobile, desktop, IoT and cloud developers combined ever conducted. This report is based on a large-scale online developer survey designed, produced and carried out by VisionMobile over a period of six weeks between October and November 2015.
Respondents were asked to self-identify as mobile, desktop, IoT or cloud developers, or a combination of those. Over 21,000 developers indicated involvement in cloud (backend) services, out of which 3,198 were asked detailed questions on their role as cloud developers. This group is the basis of our analysis throughout this report. We consider everyone who is involved in the production cycle of an IoT project to be an IoT developer, whether or not they are writing code. This includes team leaders and other decision makers.
