RIM Commissioned Developer Survey Finds Positive Momentum

BlackBerry 10 Dev Relations

You always have to take survey results with a grain of salt if a company is paying for them but its good to see RIM is keeping an ear to the ground for developer sentiment. Awhile back I asked Alec Saunders how he measures success for his development relations team and this latest survey hits on many of those points. Here are the results from the independent survey from developers on multiple platforms:

  • Developer attitude towards RIM has improved broadly and significantly
    • 42% would definitely recommend RIM as a development platform, a 25% increase
  • Global developers have shifted their focus away from Apple to other platforms including RIM
    • 18% of developers surveyed say they are now developing apps for RIM, a 4% increase
    • 8% now consider RIM to be their main (primary) development platform, a 5% increase
  • Buzz and excitement is growing for BlackBerry 10 development
    • 12% of developers heard positive buzz regarding BlackBerry 10 from other developers, a 7% increase

Here is to hoping RIM continues driving this momentum.
