The results are in, and we're taking note of some interesting trends. If you participated in the survey, or if your just interested in this snapshot of the development infrastructure landscape, take a look at the results of our survey, or read some of the highlights in the following post.
- There is broad support for Maven with a clear majority of you (90%) either using Maven or are planning to use Maven
- 83% of you use a continuous integration server, and within that majority 72% of you use Hudson. Hudson is the clear winner among continuous integration servers
- Even though continuous integration adoption is widespread, about 70% of survey respondents report that "Not Knowing a Build Has Broken, or Why" is a problem that affects productivity
- Most of the respondents are developers and architects, with only 6% of the respondents calling themselves "Build Engineers"
- Excluding managers and team leads from the stats, roughly 76% of you are technical, hands-on users of Maven, Nexus, and our other products
- One quarter of you work for organizations with more than 500 developers, and a little more than a third work for companies with between 1 and 25 developers. (This suggests that Maven can be used in both environments: to support small nimble project teams and to support the largest, internet-scale engineering efforts out there)
