Developer Tools Benchmarking 2016 survey


Windows is proud to once again sponsor the latest VisionMobile Developer Economics survey , and want to ask our readers to spend 15 minutes on it. This is VisionMobile’s 11th developer survey and examines developer tool usage trends across the industry. It’s a great opportunity to share your experiences about software development, learn what your peers are working on, and also get a chance to win some prizes just for helping out.

The survey is made by developers, for developers – so the questions are very relevant, and it’s always exciting to be part of the industry-wide mosaic the survey results paint.  It features topics like programming languages, platforms, app categories, revenue models, IoT verticals and—of course—dev tools!

Participants can win cool prizes including Lumia 635s, Windows IoT dev kits, a Surface Pro 3 and more. Prize drawings will happen in June. VisionMobile will also share the survey findings with you, and show you how your responses compare with other developers in your country.

Whether you’re looking to share your thoughts with the dev community, find out something new, contribute to the leading developer research—or win a great prize—this is the survey for you!

You can start the survey here:

The key findings from the survey will be published as a free State of the Developer Nation report in July 2016. For those who haven’t seen a prior report, I definitely recommend checking out their March Developer Economics report.
