Two weeks ago we announced the launch of the Mozilla Developer Network. We also asked for your help through this short survey for Web developers. The questions were meant to understand who you are, what you’re interested in, and what resources would be most useful to you on MDN. We’re happy to report that we have received over 3,600 responses so far, so thank you!
Here’s a Sneak Peek at the Data:
The most popular tools for development are a collection of Firefox add-ons, including Firebug and Web developer, and… text editors! Each developer has a favorite, from vi or emacs to TextMate or Notepad++.
Either Web developers live mostly in the US and in France, or this is where the most active Mozilla developer outreach is happening. We think it’s the latter, for France we call it the “Paul and Tristan effect”!
What Are We Missing?
Please help us get more responses from around the world so we can understand the needs of Web developers everywhere.
We would also love to get more participants who are working in corporate environments, especially on intranets. And we’d like to hear more from those of you who are working (willingly or not) with proprietary technologies.
How Can You Help?
Once we have enough responses, we’ll publish the results on this blog. You can also follow the latest Mozilla Developer Network updates on Twitter at @mozhacks.
