It’s survey report time again! YAY :) This year we’re focusing on profilers and performance. If you know what we’re talking about already, feel free to take the survey straight away, it just takes 3 minutes! Oh, and you can also help us and the charity by sharing the survey too, by using the post sharing options above or by RTing our RebelLabs tweet below.

If not, please make a note of where you are standing, who you are standing with and what you were doing while you took this information in. This is a moon landing type moment. You are about to partake in an activity which will lead to a monumental, life changing outcome. You’ll need to tell your grandchildren how it all started. Here’s what you might say:
“I was on the train when I took the survey, on my mobile. It was so easy, I decided to code in Scala all day to make up for it!”
“Going against all my better judgement and friend’s advice, I filled out the survey on my desktop computer while operating heavy machinery, that’s why I’m talking to through the medium of a sock puppet”
OK, back to the serious business now. Each year, RebelLabs produces a standout kick ass report entirely based on survey feedback. It’s kinda what we’re known for among many people who don’t realise we also do blog posts, and other technical reports. This year is no different! Other than the year of course, and the topic.
To repeat, we’re running a survey based on Java performance and profilers, mostly because we’ve really become interested in profiling and thought it was an intriguing area which many groups and developers do differently. The best part is, it’s free to take part :o) In fact for every completed survey we receive, we’ll be giving 50c to a charity which provide support dogs to disabled children. How bad a person must you be not to want to take the survey now! Well quick, here it is, it only takes a few minutes to complete and you’ll help make a difference to people’s lives.
Don’t forget to add your email address at the end if you’d like us to send the report straight to you!
