Online and mobile developers use a number of tools to collaborate on, facilitate and track their projects from bug tracking and API management to code sharing networks and mobile back-end services. Investors are beginning to take notice of the relatively young market categorized as developer tools, or any program or application that helps developers devise, debug, test, or in any other way support code. Over the past year, $646M has been invested into developer tools across 94 deals.
The majority of funding growth into developer tools start-ups is coming at the seed and Series A stages, which may explain why average funding per quarter over the past two years trended just below $20M.
