After the recent publication of its 2016 Q1 report, VisionMobile is already gathering data for the next report, which will cover the languages and tools we are across six sectors mobile, cloud, desktop, IoT, machine learning, and AR/VR. The more developers take part, the more complete the information we'll have about the State of the Developer Nation.
This is VisionMobile's 11th developer survey and it’s entitled Developer Tools Benchmarking. It includes questions on topics like programming languages, platforms, app categories, tool categories, revenue models, IoT verticals - and, of course - tools! It’s a survey made by developers, for developers - so the questions are very relevant!
One incentive for contributing to the research is to get feedback about you how your answers compare you to other developers in your country by way of a custom scorecard and to receive a free report with its findings.
Obviously reaching as many developers as possible is important to VisionMobile, which had almost 22,000 respondents to its previous survey, the 10th in its biennial series. To encourage you to complete the survey, which takes around 10 to 20 minutes depending on how many of the development categories you are involved in, there's a prize draw with prizes including an iPhone 6s, an Xperia Z5, a Nexus 6P, and more. Although you can only enter the survey once and only claim a single prize, your email can be entered in the prize draw up to six times. This is because the survey has separate sections on mobile, IoT, desktop, machine learning, augmented/virtual reality, and backend software.
Further rewards are available to members of Vision Mobile's Developer Panel. By joining this panel you agree to being contacted regarding this and future surveys. In addition to having their emails entered into the General Prize draw, panelists will also be entered into a separated Panel Prize Draw. In addition they earn 100 points for the current survey plus 100 points for any of Vision Mobile's previous surveys completed with the same email address. Once you've accumulated 500 points you can convert 200 points to an $10 Amazon Gift Card. Panelists can also participate in a Referral Program to recruit more respondents with BitCoin rewards.
We've already reported on some of the findings of VisionMobile's Q1 2016 report but since languages are a main focus of the new survey this graphic sums up some of its language-related findings:
