AR/VR Hardware and Software Trends
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.
Backend Developer Population Forecast 2018
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.
360 Developer Landscape
In this report we aim to give a complete picture of the modern developer by showing how they spread themselves across different technology areas. It turns out that the single area specialist is a rare species, with most developers having broader interests, and even professional involvement. This has major implications for anyone hoping to attract developer attention.
Who and where data scientists and machine learning developers are
Understanding who data scientists are is key to designing effective campaign messages and offerings. To deliver the message though you also need to know where to find them. In the second part of our report we dive deep into the sources of information that data scientists and ML developers prefer, including among others Q&A sites, communities and conferences.
