DETROIT – The Mobile Technology Association of Michigan (MTAM) is once again partnering with VisionMobile to seek developer input on the Developer Economics Q3 2017 survey. This is the thirteenth  developer survey, focusing on tools, training and career development. Every year more than 40,000 developers around the world participate in this survey, so this is a chance for MTAM’s developer audience to be part of something global and to make your own contribution to the larger developer community.

The survey features questions on topics such as 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 great about this survey is that it’s 100% relevant since it has been made by a developer. Plus you’ll have an opportunity to learn about new tools – in only 15 minutes of your time!

The Developer Economics survey is always designed to offer an extra fun factor. So this time, while taking it, your answers will be 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. What’s your character going to be? A cyborg trooper, a technomancer, a smuggler? Take the survey and find out!

Participants can win one of the many prizes available including an iPhone 7, Pixel phone 32 GB, Oculus Rift and more. MTAM community participants will also have an opportunity to win a $50 Amazon voucher!

Last but not least, VisionMobile will show you how your responses compare to other developers’ in your country, so you’ll get a sense of how you compare to other devs. You’ll also be among the first to receive the Developer Economics Q3 2017 report (published August 2017) based on key survey findings.
