Truth be told I find survey largely irrelevant.
What my gender or some such have to do with D? Or my job? What
do we want to understand from that - “teenagers w/o like D
language more?” or some such nonsense?
I despise demographic style surveys, ask technical aspects
instead, it would be 10x more informative.
Yeah, it's too personal (job, company, gender). Questions
should concentrate on technical aspects.
Survey techniques are a science after all. Google provides you
the tools but without methodology it's peanuts. I suppose that
this survey just allows you to locate yourself among the
community, although it was already well known that D is more used
in Europe and mostly by adults. I mean that the results cannot be
used to change the development guide lines.
Only interesting Q:
- How did you learn D ? : yes, it shows for example that
tour.dlang.org has gained its place.
- What is your PRIMARY /SECONDARY area of development where you
focus on D ? maybe interesting to detect something that's not
worth improving in the language. But bad formulation.
- How would you rate your experience with D compared to other
languages? Yes, may show if D is generating D-language-centered
and few others. Average SLOC per project would have been
interesting too. TIme spent per day.
