The Application Developers Alliance

The Apps Alliance is a non-profit global membership organization that supports developers as creators, innovators, and entrepreneurs. We promote the continued growth of the industry and advocate on behalf of our members on public policy and industry issues


Why was the Alliance Created? 

The Apps Alliance was founded in 2012 to represent the interests of the developers as creators, innovators, and entrepreneurs. The highly publicized growth of mobile apps and the importance of software in an increasingly digital world, raised the profile of developers amongst policy makers, the business community, and the media. 

Amid this sudden attention, and in the absence of any centralized organization that could provide insights into who developers are or the work they do, the Apps Alliance was formed to serve as a trade association for developers. The  mission of the Alliance is to serve as an advocate for developers, support the industry’s continued growth, and promote innovation. 

Today, the Apps Alliance is working to provide a global and centralized platform that recognizes and values developers as an essential workforce. 


Alliance Membership

Our membership includes a global network of more than 50,000 developers with diverse skills, expertise, and interests; and hundreds of companies that depend on and work with developers.
