The Application Developers Alliance

The 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 Developers 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 a centralized organization able to provide insights into who developers are and the work they do, the Alliance was formed to to serve as an advocate for developers, support the industry’s continued growth, and promote innovation. 

Today, the Alliance is a centralized platform for the essential developer workforce and a global association for developers.


Alliance Membership

Our membership includes a global network of tens of thousands of developers with diverse skills, expertise, and interests; and hundreds of companies that depend on and work with developers.
