The survey should take around 5 minutes to complete and will help us gain insight into developer trends. We may contact you for a follow-up discussion to get detailed input from you. We will also enter your name into a random drawing for $100 if you provide contact information.

Please retweet/blog or email the survey to your friends and colleagues.
