Are you new to programming?

Posted 06 April 2017 - 01:54 PM

Still learning your first language?
I would appreciate it if you could take 2 minutes to fill out this survey
https://goo.gl/forms/hMjeDfWSTSDp8xvh2

Doing some quick data collection towards helping those who are starting to learn to program.

How is this data going to be used?
Will you tell us how it went?
What organization are you with?

Purely for decision making, thinking about starting a tuition service/site wanted to see what kind of issues and interests beginners have and whether there is a demand.

Of course, if there's a significant amount of responses (say 50+) I might release some graphs on the data collected

?
It's 9 questions long, should only take a minute or too and entering email address is completely optional

Not with any organisation, as I said, purely just for me building on idea's at this point.
I just want to help people learn how to program, we've all got to start somewhere.

Nope.. just personally curious. See a ton of these come and go.. some claim for classes others for what ever reasons.. drop a post, take the data, and disappear. It always interests me on what folks are combing for.

Yeah fair enough, I've been a browser for a while but never had a reason to sign up until now, but yes I'm not going to be particularly active of this/other forums because I'm nearly always programming myself :P
I'll share the data I collect, I just said maybe because I don't want to be held to it or disappoint anyone if I forget

Probably it doesn't help a lot that you ask if the respondents are interested in mentorship, and then you ask for email addresses... that starts to look a little like market research.

Haha yea I did that intentionally rather than hide the question amongst the others so it's obvious and honest.
Not a professional surveyor here just thought it'd be a good place to start

Queue the image of neotifa drinking alone on her 21st birthday. The search doesn't allow me to go back that far to repost it :/
