State of Haskell, 2011 Survey

It's time for this year's State of Haskell survey! Like last year I'm trying to figure out
  • where Haskell programmers "come from",
  • in which domains Haskell is being used,
  • to what extent Haskell is used commercially, and
  • what the major weakness in the Haskell ecosystem are.
New from last year are specific questions on library support and reasoning about run-time performance.

The results from this survey are now available.

  2. Thanks for the survey, I think it's really a great way of getting an overview over the Haskell community.

    Could you please consider making some of the questions optional? E.g. I'm pretty new to Haskell and have never reasoned about the performance of more complex programs. Also, I really can't say anything about the API stability, so I feel like my answers kinda adulterate the results.

  3. I left the ones I couldn't answer blank and had no issue submitting the form, it was pretty much the entire second half.

  4. hannes-l,

    All questions should be optional.

  5. Well, ...stupid me ;) I haven't thought of the questions being implicit optional. So next year also with optional answers for me.

  8. Apologies for the delay. I've been trying to convince Google Docs to make graphs of the data.

  10. The results are now up! Sorry about the delay. Putting the graphs together proved to take more time than expected.
