Based on an international survey of developers, Andrews said that the adoption rate of the Ajax developer platform is "as extreme as any of the other technologies that we are tracking", comparing it to the adoption rates of Eclipse and Flash.
Evans Data estimates that there were 10.8 million software developers worldwide in 2004, which is set to increase to 17.1 million by 2009.
Some 1.7 million developers currently write code in Ajax and another 1.2 million have evaluated the technique and are preparing to start using it, according to Andrews.
