Some numbers that are somewhat shocking in 's 2019 State of the Octoverse () - 40M developers (up *10M* in 2019) - 44% more developers created their first repository in 2019 than in 2018 (Accelerating innovation?) - 80% of developers outside the US*

Just b/c someone creates a GitHub account doesn't mean they should be considered a developer. It is fascinating how many of these accounts become "inactive" within a month of them being created.

Though I think they only count those that have done something meaningful on the platform, right? (Well, the 40M number includes "The total number of non-spammy user accounts on GitHub as of September 30, 2019, regardless of their activity status.")

They look at active contributors to specific projects elsewhere in the report. I wish they published the queries they used to pull this data.
