91% of IoT developers use open source technology in their projects. Open source is a major factor in the Internet of Things. In this report, we examine the state of the art in how and why IoT developers use open source software, open source hardware, and open data.
The data in this report comes from our 10th edition Developer Economics survey (Q4 2015). 3,700 Internet of Things developers answered questions about their use of and attitude towards open source technology.
The Open Source in IoT report provides developer program managers with objective data-backed insights on the use of open source technology by IoT developers and helps them to manage the use of open source in their projects.
The Open Source in IoT 2016 report comes with a single-user license. If you are interested in an enterprise-wide license please contact us.

Our Q4 2015 Developer Economics survey reached over 21,000 developers in 150 countries.The data from this survey, the largest research to date on IoT developers, give us a unique perspective at how the Internet of Things developer ecosystem is evolving. This research report delves into data on 3,700 IoT developers that told us about their open source habits.
The online survey was translated into 11 languages (Russian, Vietnamese, Spanish, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Korean, Portuguese, Japanese, French, Indonesian, Italian) and promoted by leading community and media partners within the app development and IoT industry. We corrected for regional bias and segment distribution bias across our outreach channels.
