Abstract

In this paper, we describe how intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, and willingness to take risk influence the activity of developers of Facebook and iPhone applications. Based on the distinction between professional developers and volunteers, we use a questionnaire to investigate the influence of different motivation structures on output measured in lines of code.
