This marks the fourth year Tidelift has conducted a survey to answer our most pressing questions for technologists using open source to develop applications. If you are interested in looking at previous reports, here’s where you can download the 2020, 2019 and 2018 survey results, plus the groundbreaking 2021 open source maintainer survey.
Participants were contacted via Tidelift’s email lists and social media. We screened respondents to make sure they were both employed and that they use open source to build applications at work. The full survey sample was 696 respondents. A t-shirt was offered as an incentive for participation.
Here’s more detail about the survey demographics, compared to our last technologist survey from 2020.
