Started in 2006, and published twice a year, it provides the most comprehensive, current, detailed data on the state of the developer population. It includes information on the total number of developers in the world, as well as on the total number of developers involved in specific technology areas. This report combines a proprietary global developer population model with selected findings from the semi-annual Global Development Survey. The data contained in this report can be a particularly useful tool that can help product managers, decision-makers, and people involved with corporate strategies gain perspective on addressable markets for specific sectors in technology.

Every year, this report presents a record of the change and growth of the developer population. Through more than a decade of reporting the total number of developers worldwide, the one constant common through 27 volumes of this study is that the population of developers increases yearly at a very steady rate, though as we will see, there are a few events that may influence this steady growth. Ultimately, this report shows the capacity of each country to product developers. Diving more deeply, we can also find a history of the development landscape. Over time, this report has shown the ascendance of particular technologies. It has also shown how technologies can fall by the wayside as developers flock to the next big thing.

The methodology used to establish the size and composition of the developer population consists of several phases. The analyst calculated the actual population figures by using results from the Global Development Survey, which was filtered with respect to specific areas of interest, cross-tabbed with the four regions - North America; Asia-Pacific (APAC); Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and Latin America - and then combined with the current results yielded from the propriety predictive model.

The proprietary methodology to establish the size of the developer population takes place in four fundamental phases:

Phase I - Gathering and Evaluating Secondary Data

Data gathered from numerous sources and rigorously verified by a team of analysts and statisticians

Phase II - Statistical Modeling

Proprietary computer simulation model ranks variables according to their predictive power - delivers country level developer population data

Phase III - Analysis

Model outputs are examined and tested

Phase IV - Reporting

Key population and demographics statistics produced and reported
