Powering Progress for Developers Through Policy

Our Mission

Advocate on behalf of developers and the companies that depend on them, support the industry’s growth, and promote innovation.

Our Vision

We strive to ensure the ecosystem developers create in is one that rewards risk and innovation. The products and services developers create make our lives healthier, more convenient and more prosperous.


Policy that impacts developers evolves rapidly – sometimes on the hour. We work to keep you up to date, so you don’t have to dig through piles of news sites and headlines to see what could affect your profession or organization.
