Conducted biannually, 490 respondents
Even though the HTML5 standard is still a work in progress, software developers are already committed to it, Evans Data's newest Global Development Survey shows. The survey of over 1200 developers conducted worldwide in November/December showed current use of HTML5 at 43% in North America, 39% in EMEA and a huge 58% in the APAC region. Adding in planned use brought the totals to over three-quarters across the regions.
"There isn't any question about the adoption of HTML5, it's already the de facto standard" said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data, "There is especial strength in HTML5 for mobile and cross-platform mobile apps, which is the direction the industry is moving for client devices, and that has made it extremely attractive to developers everywhere in the world. We see the most strength in Asia, a region that is generally quick to adopt new technologies."
The survey also showed that developers are more likely to use a standalone HTML5 editor in APAC and EMEA, though North Americans prefer to use the editor in their IDE. When asked about importance in the development cycle, HTML5 came in 20% higher on average across regions than either Flash or Silverlight.
