Take this sci-fi developer survey and win a $50 Amazon voucher!

 This feature has been brought to you by VisionMobile

We are excited to present you with the Developer Economics Q3 2017 survey, run by our friends at VisionMobile! This is their 13th developer survey, and it's focusing on tools, training and career development. The survey has an annual reach of more than 40,000 developers around the world, so it is a chance for you to contribute to the global developer community. 

Some of the topics featured in the survey are  questions on topics like development resources and where to find them, tutorials and courses, distribution channels, developer tools and SDKs, as well as languages, platforms, app categories, new technologies, and revenue models. What’s also great about this survey is that it is 100% relevant since it has been made by developers, you’ll get to learn about new tools, and it only takes 15 minutes.

There are many reasons why developers say that the Developer Economics survey is cool. Here are some of them: 

You can visit all the galaxies of the Developer Universe 

The survey includes a sci-fi theme designed to offer an extra fun factor. While taking it, your answers are gradually forming a profile, showing you what kind of character you'd be in a sci-fi developer universe.  

When you finish, you'll get to read your full profile in your Developer Scorecard.  What's your character going to be? A cyborg trooper, a technomancer, a bounty hunter? Your profile will also include graphs showing how your responses compare to other developers' answers in your country, so you'll get a sense of how you compare to other devs.

An Exclusive prize for the TechRadar community 

TechRadar readers who will participate in the survey will be entered into a prize draw for a $50 Amazon voucher – so our community will have at least one winner! 

More Prizes 

Participants can also in one of the many prizes available including an iPhone 7, a Pixel phone 32GB, an Oculus Rift, a Surface Pro 3, a 12-month Xbox Live Gold Membership, and more. 

Insights to help you excel in your career 

As always, VisionMobile will publish the key findings from the survey in the form of a free report, come August. If you contribute, you'll be among the first to get a copy!

These findings will include interesting insights to help you excel your career in software development.

“There are many reasons why someone might prefer one job over another, but let’s be honest: developers deserve to get paid well, given their important position in the global value chain,” says Stijn Schuermans, VisionMobile Senior Business Analyst.

The previous survey showed that region and software sector are two of the most significant factors to determine developer salaries. 

“The best-earning developers in our survey – those in the top ten percent – often earn tens and sometimes hundreds of times as much as the least well-off, i.e. the bottom decile,” Schuermans reveals.

“Part of this gap is location-driven, but a developer’s skill, knowledge, and reputation do matter, so investing in them will pay off.”
