Results for GDPR

General Data Protection Regulation) in the European Union is an attempt to strengthen the protections around personal data for EU citizens.

A third (34 percent) of all respondents are unsure if their company is preparing for the legislation. This holds true regardless of company size, but some countries appear to be more confused than others; up to 50 percent in markets like Mexico and Indonesia say they are not sure where their company stands on GDPR

Open Source

While improved code quality was noted as an advantage of open-source among 30 percent of developers, increased sense of community among developers was the top answer at 37 percent.
