How open is open source software – research survey
« on: May 10, 2011, 01:18:06 PM »
Dear WebsiteBaker Community,

I am a researcher on open source software from the Technical University of Hamburg, Germany. I would kindly like to invite you to participate in my research survey about the importance of openness in software development.

The survey takes 5 - 10 minutes, and all participants will have the chance to win one of 3 Amazon vouchers, with the value of $75 (or 50EUR) each.

The link to the survey is: http://cgi.tu-harburg.de/~timcg/SurveryCG/limesurvey/index.php?sid=64643&lang=en

Thank you very much in advance, understanding your experience and views is very important for us and our research.

Thank you and best Regards

Cord

P.S. The survey has a solely research focus and is free of any commercial purposes. Furthermore, all data will be analyzed anonymously. Thank you again for your help

The questions in this survey will touch on the following 6 topics:
   1. Your involvement in the community
   2. Your motivation to participate
   3. The availability of information
   4. The possibility to participate
:-D

Do you have the same survey in german?
Most users are german speakers in this community.

Kind Regards,
Stefek

Hello,

yes, but a lot of german speakers doesn't really follow up the english threads,
thats why I asked to place another thread in the german board. (You will reach more people.)

Kind regards,
Stefek
