Where are NetBeans users?

Guest Author

If you ever wondered where the NetBeans users are located, here's your chance to find it: NetBeans active user map. This map is not live, but it is quite up-to-date. Great to see users at Mauritius, Hawai and other islands. Time to organize a NetBeans day on one of these islands? With 222 users on Mauritius, there's some potential :) Btw, the map doesn't show total number of NetBeans users because there are many developers in poor countries that are not pernamently connected to the internet and thus we don't count them.

Anyway, nice to see over half a million of connected users of NetBeans on one map. When I started working on NetBeans the number was about 50.000. 10x growth in less than 4 years, not bad!

    Cool. I suppose this uses IPs of users that connect to the update center. Are there plans to release the code that creates the map? :-) It would be useful for developers of desktop applications that want to see their users.

    That's fantastic, Roumen. I wonder if the proprietary / platform-specific IDEs are nearly that global. Still tilted toward certain parts of the world, but starting to look far less like there's a gap between different parts of the planet.
