What is RedMonk

RedMonk is the first and only developer focused industry analyst firm. We believe that developers are the most important constituency in technology, which is why we work on their behalf for technology companies large and small.

William Gibson once said that “the future is already here, it’s just unevenly distributed,” and we concur. RedMonk analysts spend their days learning from the developers that are defining the future of technology, distilling our findings into free research, and working with clients to explain the likely impact.

Without the fine support we enjoy from our clients, none of this would be possible. We appreciate their business, and hope you’ll thank them for us.


If you’re used to dealing with analyst firms that nickel and dime you, or ask you to pay for every insight, RedMonk will be a pleasant surprise. We share our learning freely, making our content available at no cost. We give back to variety of communities with both time and money, and always have time to help the little guy. When we say we’re different, we’re not kidding.
