In June of 2020, Tidelift fielded their annual managed open source survey of technologists. Over 600 people shared how they use open source software today, what holds them back, and what tools and strategies would help them use it even more effectively.
This year’s survey answers the following questions:
- Is the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing recession changing the ways organizations think about and use open source?
- How do organizations manage their open source dependencies today?
- When and why do organizations encourage the use of open source?
- What are the most popular open source programming languages?
- And much more…
In this report, Tidelift highlights nine of the most interesting revelations that help us understand how to make open source work even better for development teams and the organizations they work within.
