Research and Markets: North American Development Survey 2012 v.2: Over Half of North American Software Developers are Moonlighting

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6x854n/north_american) has announced the addition of the "North American Development Survey 2012 v.2" report to their offering.

This series started in the Winter of 1998 and is the most comprehensive research survey series in existence focused exclusively on developers and IT managers. In this survey, we examine the changing face of Operating platforms; Languages including particular emphasis on Scripting Languages; Web Services and Service Oriented Architectures with deeper drill-down for Software as a Service and Cloud Computing, highlighting trend updates and significant changes.

This series explores: global demographics, platform use and migrations, language use, internal and external cloud computing, SaaS, SOA, security, Linux and open source software, Java development, general internet development, architecture and technology adoption, software development requirements, development tools, development issues, and application management.

Conducted biannually; based upon 393 in-depth developer interviews for Fall 2012.

New Evans Data Survey Shows 53% work on apps outside of work

Over half of all software developers work on apps on their own personal time according to the newly released North American Development Survey, a survey of over 400 software developers in North America conducted last month. Of those who do work on apps outside of work, 34% spend 20 to 40 hours per week, while 29% spend more than 40 hours per week on their own projects. The more experience the developer has, the more likely he is to work long hours on his own.

There's been a lot of conjecture over the last couple of years about just who are the people writing all those apps for app stores, said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data Corp. While there obviously are specific companies focused on that space, and maybe a handful of hobbyists or students, the author sees lots of evidence that the bulk of those apps are being developed by the same developers who write traditional software for many types of companies as their day job.

CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
The best way to leverage your Cloud Expo presence as a sponsor and exhibitor is to plan your news announcements around our events. The press covering Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo will have access to these releases and will amplify your news announcements. More than two dozen Cloud companies either set deals at our shows or have announced their mergers and acquisitions at Cloud Expo. Product announcements during our show provide your company with the most reach through our targeted audiences.
Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to impr...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
Chris Matthieu is the President & CEO of Computes, inc. He brings 30 years of experience in development and launches of disruptive technologies to create new market opportunities as well as enhance enterprise product portfolios with emerging technologies. His most recent venture was Octoblu, a cross-protocol Internet of Things (IoT) mesh network platform, acquired by Citrix. Prior to co-founding Octoblu, Chris was founder of Nodester, an open-source Node.JS PaaS which was acquired by AppFog and ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
