Sign in to follow this  


[font=arial]We recently asked GameDev.net readers to fill out a survey from Vision Mobile. They have just announced the results of that survey in the State of the Developer Nation Q3 2016 Report, the company's popular semi-annual report based on key insights from the largest, most global developer research program in the world.[/font]

[font=arial]The State of the Developer Nation Q3 2016 report is based on the 11th edition of VisionMobile's Developer Economics survey. The report includes insights and analysis generated by VisionMobile, based on responses from over 16,500 developers globally across multiple research areas including Mobile, Desktop, Cloud, IoT, and Augmented / Virtual Reality, as well as Machine Learning.[/font]


[font=arial]The report addresses the following key questions: [/font]

  • [font=arial]Why is Android beginning to dominate iOS as the priority platform for professional mobile developers? What does that matter?[/font]

  • [font=arial]How are developer choices of desktop platforms related to their preferred server-side languages?[/font]

  • [font=arial]Which vertical market attracts the most IoT developers, and is also the fastest growing?[/font]

  • [font=arial]Which area do developers see as most promising in the future - messaging bots, augmented and virtual reality, or data science and machine learning?[/font]


    [font=arial]Highlights from the report : [/font]

    • [font=arial]Leaping to a new record for any platform since we started measuring, Android now has 79% mindshare amongst mobile developers.[/font]

    • [font=arial]47% of professional developers now consider Android their primary platform, up 7 percentage points in the last 6 months.[/font]

    • [font=arial]Microsoft is clearly having some success shepherding Windows classic developers towards newer technologies; an impressive 36% primarily use C# on the server.[/font]

    • [font=arial]Nearly 23% of developers are already involved in either AR or VR development, most of those as a hobby or side project.[/font]

    • [font=arial]An amazing 41% of developers are involved in data science or machine learning in some way, 33% of those in a professional capacity[/font]

      [font=arial]The full report with graphs is available for download here. More charts from the survey:[/font]
