(This is the same post as the one found on the Mozilla Hacks blog. Thanks to Jay Patel for co-writing this with me.)
If you are a web developer or designer, we can use your input. After gaining some great insights from our previous survey on Firefox 3.6 and Firebug 1.5, we have decided to go broader and get a better industry-wide snapshot of web developers.
We have created a new survey in our continued effort to better understand the web developer landscape and how the Mozilla Developer Network can be a better resource within it. Over the past few weeks, we have interviewed web developers about how they work and collaborated with a research consultant to compile a list of questions that will hopefully give us a clearer picture of the people behind the open Web and how we can better serve them.
This survey asks questions about the web development experience: the technologies and resources you use, the communities you join, and the companies that influence the realm of your work. We plan to use your responses to improve our developer engagement efforts and deliver relevant programs and content through the Mozilla Developer Network to make your web development experience better.
Your input is be much appreciated. Take the survey here, and please feel free to share the survey with other web developers and designers. Please pass on this link: http://bit.ly/wdatow2010 to the appropriate lists, forums, blogs, etc.
It is important that the results accurately represent the diverse set of people that make up the web developers of the world, so we hope that you will help us reach other developer communities, including those mentioned in our survey. Together, we can take a step closer to a better open Web. Thanks!
