Sonatype Survey Findings: Now with Granularity

As everyone probably knows by now, we recently announced the findings of our annual survey of developers, architects, and managers. We were fortunate to have more than 2,500 responses to this year's survey. If you missed it, you can find the details in the press release.

The Results Are In: Sonatype 2012 Open Source Development Survey

I'm pleased to share the results of this year's Sonatype Open Source Software Development Survey. We were blown away by the level of participation -- more than 2,550 of you took the survey.

Our Customers Told Us To...(the Insight Story)

Last month we launched a new product, Sonatype Insight, to help companies make better use of open source components in application development.

1,600 Developers Speak -- And They Want Better Integration

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)
