Appcelerator & IDC - Mobile Developers Survey 2012Appcelerator and IDC surveyed 5,526 Appcelerator Titanium developers from August 22-28, 2012 on their perceptions about current debates in mobile, social, and the cloud as well as their development priorities. This constitutes the world’s largest mobile developer survey ever conducted to date and reflects the tremendous growth of the Appcelerator ecosystem. Some of the key findings reveal that mobile developers believe that a mobile-first startup could disrupt Facebook, disappointment with nearly every aspect of HTML5, Apple’s continued reign as the platform of choice for developers, and top predictions for mobile in 2015:

  • How a mobile-first startup could disrupt Facebook
