In this report, based on the 11th edition Developer Economics survey reaching 2,600+ IoT developers, we look at which information sources are on the rise. We break down the popularity of these sources by how developers are involved in IoT, their psychographic segments, and their professional background. We focus in particular on communities of IoT developers - a key source of information sharing and peer-to-peer influence.
We asked 7,892 mobile developers how they get information about mobile development. Follow-up questions dive deeper into the specific Q&A and community sites they visit, and which conferences they attend. Delving deeper into the characteristics of developers, the report identifies several niches which savvy marketeers can target as they craft their outreach.
It is clear that software - and therefore software developers - play a key role in shaping IoT products and ultimately the IoT market. The value of the Internet of Things is not in the devices or the connections, but in what software allows you to do with data that was never so abundant. Understanding IoT developers - their needs, their challenges, and the context in which they operate - is more important than ever for ambitious technology companies that want to reap the gains of vibrant communities of co-creators. With this report, we hope to provide a solid, data-rich contribution to that understanding.
What our clients are saying about our research
You certainly have a lot of great insights from the years of surveying a large, unbiased panel of developers! My team was also impressed with your work and look to do more.

This report is certainly a wake-up call. It shows a European app economy worth hundreds of thousands of jobs, and generating billions of euros a year. That's not bad for an economy that, 5 years ago, didn't even exist.

Andreas and the VisionMobile team did a first class job bringing new insights that helped connect our API management strategy to the world of mobile and app developers. We worked together to drive some webinars and a poster that captured our value props. Lots of fun.
