Developer Program Membership up to 80% in 2013

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on Apr 03, 2013

    Eighty percent of developers belong to a developer program, according to Evans Data’s recently released Developer Relations Program survey, an annual survey of over 500 software developers conducted in February. 

    That’s an increase of 57% since 2008, which was the first year that more developers belonged to programs than did not and an increase of 156% since 2002, when the survey series was first introduced.

    While a significant number, 34%, belong only to free programs, 23% belong exclusively to programs that charge a fee, and 23% belong to both paid and free programs. Both paid and free program membership has increased significantly during the last year.  Total membership has increased sharply each year since 2011 when only 55% were in a program.

    "Developer programs are highly important today and getting even more so,” said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data Corp. "Not only do developers expect to be supported by anyone who offers a platform or even an API for adoption, but the number and types of companies that are offering APIs is increasing rapidly as the world becomes more interconnected and software becomes ubiquitous."
