VisionMobile invites all software developers to take the Developer Economics survey, a global study reaching more than 40,000 developers every year. Not your ordinary survey, the Developer Economics survey offers developers the chance to share their experiences, test their developing skills, increase their development knowledge, and win fabulous prizes.

The Developer Economics survey is the largest independent survey on a global scale, reaching more than 40,000 developers every year. The survey is designed by developers, so it is 100% relevant to all involved in software development. The 13th edition of the Developer Economics survey is now live, and developers who have already participated say that they learned a lot about tools, technologies, and platforms that they didn’t know about!

“I have 15 years of experience as a dev, and even with that, I didn't know all the platforms—and especially game engines—that your survey contains. Great job!” says @BoboTheRobot.

So, how much do you really know about developer tools? You can find out by taking the survey.

If you are not yet convinced, here are another 5 reasons why you will really enjoy it:

It is not yet another boring survey. It takes place in the Developer Universe—yes, that’s in outer space!

The survey includes a sci-fi theme designed to offer an extra fun factor. Your responses will gradually form a profile, showing you which sci-fi character best represents you. When you finish, you'll get to read your full profile in your Developer Scorecard. There are 10 sci-fi characters, so you could be a robot trooper, an alien commander, a bounty hunter, and more. Your profile will also include graphs showing how some of your responses compare to other developers' answers in your country, so you'll get a sense of how you compare to other devs.

These findings will include interesting insights to help you make the right decisions for your professional development. For example, the previous survey showed that region and software sector are two of the most significant factors to determine developer salaries. The median web developer in North America earns $73,600 USD per year, while a Western European web developer earns half of that—$35,400 USD.
