By most accounts, developer interest in open source technology is thriving. According to a 2017 Black Duck Survey, 90 percent of IT workloads running today use open source code. In addition, 86 percent of organizations surveyed said their use of open source is either growing or remaining constant, and 48 percent said the number of developers they have contributing to open source projects is increasing.
Open source development tools are particularly popular. In that Black Duck survey, 57 percent of organizations said they use open source development tools, while 53 percent use open source DevOps or cloud computing tools. And in a separate GitHub survey, 72 percent of developers surveyed said that they always seek out open source tools when evaluating their options.
