The Developer Nation surveys are committed to giving back to the community in multiple ways. We do so by sharing the data and insights we collect. We also donate to causes aligned with our mission. The donation program has become a core element of our surveys, and we have realised that it is essential for the community.
How does it work?
For each survey wave that we run, we donate 0.10$ to the favourite charities of our Developer Nation Community. The goal is to reach at least $2000 in donations.
What happened during the 24th Developer Nation survey?
During our 24th Developer Nation global survey, we collected a surprising total of 26,289 qualified responses meaning that we could surpass our goal by donating $2,607!- and support the causes you care about.
We always prioritise developer-centric organisations, helping software developers excel in their career and personal development. Nevertheless, we support other causes that matter a lot to our community.
Embracing transparency, we list below the organisations we supported with our donations. The amounts correspond to how the respondents of the Developer Nation survey voted for them.
The mission of freeCodeCamp is to help people learn to code for free. I’m personally a huge fan of the work they are doing and have learned quite a bit from there. A total of 9183 survey participants picked them for support so we could donate $918 to freeCodeCamp.
Girls Who Code is on a mission to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to become change agents in their communities. A total of 6,423 survey participants picked them for support so we could donate $642 to Girls Who Code.
The Raspberry pi foundation empowers young people to use computing technologies to shape the world while CoderDojo helps enhance and build tech skills in an informal, creative and social environment. A total of 6,515 survey participants picked them for support so we could donate $652 to the Raspberry pi foundation and Coder Dojo.
WWF is on a mission to protect threatened species and their habitats. A total of 3,953 survey participants picked them for support so we could donate $395 to the World Wildlife Foundation.
A small number of Donations from DN Prizes
In each survey, we give developers the option to donate the cash value of their prize to one of the charities we support. We’re pleased to share that developers donated an additional $315 from their prizes! We’re thankful for their generosity! The initial goal was to donate around $1,800 but we ended up smashing our goal by donating $2,607!
Giving back to the broader community is at the very core of our mission. We are grateful and also proud of our community members for embracing our program and contributing to it. Being community-led, this effort could not be without your valuable contributions. Please share your thoughts and suggestions for future donations using the donation program section of our forum.
