Meet the finalists of the Developers' Choice Awards 2018, Future Developer Summit Edition. The finalists and winners are determined based on data derived from SlashData's Developer Economics surveys. The Developer Economics surveys run twice per year and each time capture the sentiment of over 20,500 developers in 165+ countries working on web, cloud, desktop, mobile, IoT, AR, VR, machine learning, and data science. In our surveys we ask developers which technologies they use - such as voice platforms - and the tools or platforms they prefer - such as Unity, and how they rate the tools on a scale from 1 to 5 in terms of how happy they are with the attributes that they consider important - such as documentation or development tools. The per-attribute scores are then combined to arrive to an overall score based on which the competing technologies and vendors are ranked. The winners and finalists were determined based on the highest emerging score.
