I am a developer, and as such I am acutely aware of many of the user
issues that coders face during the
developer process. I am also aware of the lack of facts available to
support claims about the working
environment, development environment and background of software
developers in the UK.
Thus, I am taking this opportunity to conduct the first survey that I
am aware of to document the working
environment, development environment and background of as many of the
300,000 software developers that
exist in the UK (according to the office of national statistics) as
This short survey is open to anyone currently in the UK who has
developed, or is currently developing, a
user interface of some kind. The user interface could be a computer
application, mobile device, website,
Flash app, DVD player, or internet-enabled fridge, indeed anything
that involves a computing device
interacting with an end user.
I will be making public the results of the survey on my website
(www.kentfield.co.uk). Graphs of the
initial un-analysed 63 results received so far are already on my
website. The full results will follow in
the new year.
Thank you in advance,
