With app markets more crowded than ever, it’s hard to stand out among other developers. To solve this problem, many developers are looking to developer programs for support, as well as resources that can’t be found in most out-of-the-box solutions. According to DZone’s Guide to Developer Programs, over 50% of their audience of developers have joined at least one developer program. So what is that attracts so many developers to developer programs?
Tools, Resources, and Community
By joining a developer program, members gain access to essential tools and resources – things like an API, documentation, SDKs, sample applications, and community forums. According to DZone’s research, 72% of survey respondents agreed that organizations with developer programs have higher quality APIs.
Developers also benefit from the community found within a developer program. It can’t be understated – whether collaborating on projects or looking for support, developers can rely on their peers within a program to create better applications. Not to mention, joining a developer program can open doors – 18% of the DZone audience said that they’ve received job offers from working on an open source project, while 12% said they’ve received offers from working on a project in a developer program.
