Take the Sci-fi developer survey and win a $200 Amazon voucher
We are excited to present you with the Developer Economics Q3 2017 survey, run by VisionMobile! This is their 13th developer survey, focusing on tools, training and career development. The survey has an annual reach of more than 40,000 developers around the world, so it is a chance for you to contribute to the global developer community.
 
The survey includes relevant topics and questions on development resources and where to find them, tutorials and courses, distribution channels, developer tools and SDKs, as well as languages, platforms, app categories, new technologies, and revenue models.

What makes the Developer Economics survey different?


- It has been designed as a sci-fi adventure.

The survey includes a sci-fi theme designed to offer an extra fun factor. Your responses will gradually form a profile, showing you which sci-fi character best represents you.

When you finish, you'll get to read your full profile in your Developer Scorecard.  What's your character going to be? A cyborg trooper, a technomancer, a bounty hunter? Your profile will also include graphs showing how some of your responses compare to other developers' answers in your country, so you'll get a sense of how you compare to other devs.

The previous survey showed that region and software sector are two of the most significant factors to determine developer salaries.

“The best-earning developers in our survey - those in the top ten percent - often earn tens and sometimes hundreds of times as much as the least well-off, i.e. the bottom decile,” Schuermans reveals. “Part of this gap is location-driven, but a developer’s skill, knowledge, and reputation do matter, so investing in them will pay off.”
 

Last but not least, the survey is fun!

The survey is full of jokes - developer jokes. You know - the ones everybody else usually doesn’t get.
