general questions about the osm-developer-community

hello there!

I want to learn more about openstreetmap :slight_smile:
For this I have some general questions…

  1. How many developer are working with osm → how big is the developer-community worldwide?

  2. Do you know how many developer compared to google maps are working with osm?

  3. Do anybody know some companies already working with openstreetmap?

Could you please help me?

Best regards
