GirlDevWeek Announcement

Hi, I’m Arabella with DeveloperWeek. Today, we’re excited to announce GirlDevweek: a conference and event series curated specifically for women in technology. Held during DeveloperWeek 2015 (February 6-12), GirlDevWeek will showcase a diverse group of people, panel talks, workshops and community gatherings for women who are building or looking to build a product and business. Diversity – especially in engineering and development – is a key topic for the tech industry. We will be curating sessions around dev education, hiring for diversity, and business topics for entrepreneurial developers. We’re looking for groups interested in hosting partner events or attracting top women developer talent: please contact us to discuss. Hope to see you at GirlDevWeek! - Arabella

The Dev Technology Landscape


As developers are empowered to make more influential decisions about the strategy of their company, the tools available to them are becoming equally as powerful and diverse. We at DevNetwork wanted to help explain the dev tech ecosystem with the below list (and infographic!) See the bottom of the article for our methodology – and contact us if you believe we missed an important technology! (Note – we’re limiting Version 2 to 200 total technologies so the infographic does not get overly complicated and therefore cannot include everything!)

A Note on Methodology

Neatly organizing the entire developer technology ecosystem is only possible in broad strokes and broad generalizations. Many of the listed technologies / companies belong in multiple categories, and we focused their categorization on the main category / subcategory that is most associated with how they market their main product(s). This landscape is not meant to be comprehensive, since there are hundreds of coding languages and frameworks we could have listed, but instead serves to group types of technologies at a high level. For simplicity’s sake, Version 2.0 will not exceed 200 technologies, which means if you submit a new technology or company, it may not get placed either because it is not itself a standalone company / organization, it is not established enough in the market, or we simply have too many technologies within that category already. We did not add API’s since there thousands of API’s across travel, social networks, news, software platforms, etc. and ProgrammableWeb already does a good job organizing API’s by category.
