About Devada

Devada is committed to empowering developers. Our mission is to harness the incredible power of technology and bring developer practitioners, advocates, and inspiring novices alike together in community through our product and platform offerings. Recognizing that developers sit at the hub of innovation in many different kinds of companies, we offer solutions that drive knowledge sharing, foster communities for collaboration, and facilitate learning and growth.

Devada’s roots are based in Javalobby, an independent online community for Java developers to share knowledge and expertise. Prior to the era of blogs and forums, the unique online community sparked a change to technology development by including developers in the conversation. Javalobby incorporated as DZone, Inc. in 2005, and through its focus on quality user-generated content, became an essential resource for developers around the globe working with different tools and platforms.


Today, Devada’s media property, DZone.com is visited by millions of developers each month to learn and to share insights and best practices on technologies. Its cloud-based software solution, AnswerHub, allows companies of all sizes to positively engage developers via the vibrant communities we enable. Founded by developers for developers, Devada is headquartered in Research Triangle Park, NC.
