Dr. Dobb's 2009 Developer Survey: A Few Minutes of Your Time, Please

July 06, 2009

Dr. Dobb's, in cooperation with Forrester Research, wants to better understand how evolving tools and technologies are affecting the software developer community. To help gain this understanding, we would appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to complete the Forrester-Dr. Dobb's 2009 Developer Technographics Survey . It should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete the survey.

The first 100 readers to complete to the survey will receive a Dr. Dobb's DVD Release 5 -- a $99.95 value. Furthermore, all respondents who complete the survey will be entered into a drawing for one of five $50 gift cards. In addition, all respondents who complete the survey will also get a copy of the Forrester report, which summarizes the results -- a $750 value.

Your responses will only be reported in aggregate form. Although you do not need to provide your name and email address, you will have to provide this information in order to receive the complimentary Forrester report, Dr. Dobb's DVD, or be registered for the gift card drawing.

The deadline for completion is July 17th, 2009. We plan on publishing the results in July/August 2009. Thanks in advance for participating in this unique and important survey .

Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you in advance for your time.
