If you’re a registered BlackBerry® Developer Zone member, you may have recently received an invitation to participate in our developer survey. I am following up that email to encourage your participation, as this survey is a direct way to tell us what you need to be more successful with your BlackBerry platform development. Your answers will help guide our product planning and feature development!
With this survey, we are most interested in understanding which BlackBerry development tools you are using regularly, and on which host platforms (Windows®, Linux®, MacOS X). We are also interested in your language choices for application development both on and off the BlackBerry OS, and in which development phases you are spending your time. Most importantly, we really want to understand how we can improve your time to market, and we’ll use your answers to the types of questions you see above as a metric of our success.
This survey will become a regular occurrence – at least twice a year. We use this data to better understand your usage of developer tools and the areas that are challenging your success. There is a combination of multiple choice and open-ended questions, so you will have the ability to give us direct feedback for your personal needs.
The survey should take about 10-15 minutes but could end up saving you hours with improved development tools and solutions from Research In Motion this year. Not to mention your feedback is incredibly valuable to us in terms of letting us know what you like, dislike, what you’d like to see more of, and so on!
