Help Bring RedMonk Content to Developers
RedMonk has spent the better part of a decade speaking with, writing for and working on behalf of developers. As the first and only developer focused industry analyst firm, our free research is read thousands of times a day by the best developers in the industry. These coders, data scientists, DBAs, designers, engineers, operators, statisticians, and sysadmins hail from all over the world. 2010 saw visitors from six continents (nobody from Antarctica, sadly) and 199 countries using 158 different languages.

Who You’re Talking To
Our audience skews technical. Heavily technical. Some random facts about our readers:
- Our top inbound subject search query over the past six months is “nodejs.”
- Approximately 80% of our visitors use Firefox, Chrome or Safari, in that order. Less than one in five uses Internet Explorer.
- On the Mac platform, the most popular browser is Chrome. On Linux and Windows, it’s Firefox.
- Speaking of Linux, for the calendar year 2010, almost 15% of our traffic came from Linux desktops: in the US, the mainstream market number is .73%.
- We’ve seen 176 distinct browser and operating system combinations so far in 2011.
And last but not least, we’ve had eight visits from OS/2 machines…this quarter. Doesn’t get geekier than that.
