We used Twitter Ads, Google Adwords and JetBrains' own communication channels to invite potential survey respondents. To minimize possible bias, the reports include only responses coming from Twitter Ads and Google Adwords.

We collected sufficient samples from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and United States. As more than 70% of all developers in the world are based in these countries, we consider our sample to be representative of the current Developer Ecosystem.

To minimize possible bias against non-English speaking respondents, we conducted the survey in 13 languages.

We also used population weighting to correct for the fact that countries with similar sample sizes have different actual numbers of developers.

Despite these measures, some bias is likely present as our users may have been more willing on average to complete the survey.
