Developer Economics Survey Q3 2017 | Take the Survey and Get a Chance to Win Some Prizes

Developer survey will reveal if you are Cyborg trooper or a Technomancer

Check out this cool developer survey featuring questions on topics like programming languages, SDKs, platforms, app categories, new technologies, revenue models, developer training and resources and -of course- tools. It’s a survey made by developers, so the questions are relevant to all devs and it only takes 15 minutes!

Also - this is a survey that’s actually fun! It is taking place in a futuristic developer universe comprised of 8 galaxies which you can visit in your spaceship. Along the way, the space computer will share guidelines, useful information on developer research and will now and then entertain you with geeky jokes. Once you complete the survey, you’ll get to find out what kind of character you’d be in this futuristic developer universe, based on your responses: A Cyborgtrooper? A Technomancer? Or something else? Take the survey and find out!

And there are amazing prizes you can win like a Pixel Phone 32GB, an Oculus Rift headset, a Samsung Galaxy J5, Udemy courses and more.

During the survey, you will unlock stats showing how your responses compare to other developers’ in your country. You’ll also be the first to receive the State of the Developer Nation report (due August 2017) based on key survey findings.

Take the survey here!

I actually won a runner-up prize last year. I've won their Aquaris E5 bq Ubuntu phone (see below):

It's a real deal! If you're not in the field of IT, you may share this survey to someone you know who work in the said field.

Take or share this survey now!
