What the survey covers
The Developer Nation survey is an independent survey for everyone who builds software: professional developers, students, hobbyists, as well as no-code creators.
The survey tracks key trends in several development areas, and asks questions about tools, platforms, languages, technologies, and more in order to understand the upcoming trends in the developer ecosystem.
The questions are not just about the “what”, but also about the “how” and the “why”: why you got into development to begin with, what type of projects you’re working on, if and how you’re building a business around software development, and more.

The survey results
The annual report presenting the survey results will be made available, by SlashData, to everyone for free. Depending on the number of responses that are submitted by the Umbraco community, we will be able to share with you an additional report that focuses on the Umbraco audience compared to the global developer ecosystem. Help us reach at least 300 responses to make that happen.
SlashData Ltd is a UK-based analyst firm with a mission to help the world understand and support developers.
SlashData research data and insights come from their flagship, Developer Economics, an independent survey. This means that the surveys and data are not owned by a vendor, community, or partner.
The survey respondents come from several developer communities and through 60 different outreach channels. This ensures that the results are not biased towards the mindset of a single community or a specific geographic location. The respondents range from student communities to professional developer forums and from small local communities (such as Meetups in Kenya) to large vendor communities (such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Intel).
