Founded in January 2012, the Application Developers Alliance has grown very rapidly in its first year and now claims more than 20,000 individual developers and about 120 companies as members. The industry was established in order represent the interests of software engineers and application developers, as well as to provide educational resources.

“We’d seen representative organizations pop up around the country that represent the companies that employ developers,” explained co-founder Jake Ward. “Those organizations focus on the software as an industry, without recognizing the importance of the individual coders.”

Already, the Alliance has held more than 50 events, including seminars, workshops, conferences, hackathons and meetups. It has also launched a website called DevsBuild.It (still in beta) that provides educational resources about development business issues. “We like to say it’s everything but the code,” Ward said.
