When people register for EclipseCon we ask some ‘optional’ questions to better understand who is attending EclipseCon. Last year I shared the results via my blog, so I thought it might be interesting to do the same this year.
About 1000 people took the time to answer the questions, so I think the results are a pretty good reflection of who was there.
Length of time using Eclipse
62% of the conference respondents have been using Eclipse for more than 2 years. This is a big jump from last year, when 42% had been using Eclipse for more than 2 years. Only 13% of the respondents have been using Eclipse for less than 1 year.
If you thought there are a lot of developers at EclipseCon, you were correct. 65% of the respondents identified themselves as a developer or architect. This was the exact same percentage in 2006.
What projects are hot?
It is always interesting to see what projects people are using. No surprise JDT is #1. RCP usage continues to be very strong.
Type of Organization
Finally we asked what type of development is Eclipse being used for? Not surprisingly 44% of the respondents worked for ISVs but close behind we 37% using Eclipse for internal IT development. Again, very little change from 2006.
