Hi everyone,

I made a public survey (everyone can look at the responses) and it would be great if you took some time and answered it. I think it will greatly benefit D as a whole if we had more anonymous data on users. I'm also open for changing some questions if there is confusion.

Yeah, I almost wanted to write "D". :-D

I finished it anyway, just to skew the data set a bit in my direction. :-D

"In what language did you learn D?" => spoken language. Took me a minute to figure this out :)

I partway filled out this survey, but not sure if I should finish it. It seems geared towards people who just learned D recently. Much of this stuff isn't applicable to me. For instance you have "Quality of resources to learn D", almost all of that wasn't available when I learned it :)

Suggestions for clarification:

- Country+City does not mean much for US. I think it's better to put e.g. "California, US" as country and e.g. "Mountain View" is city.

- I have two primary languages: Fully Turkish at home and among Turkish people and English outside. :)

- "know about" and "used it before" are distinct groups of people. Unless you are looking for two numbers, remove one of those phrases.

- "In what language did you learn D?" Please make that "spoken language". Otherwise, "language" in a language survey can be confusing. :)

- dconf.org is missing from the repos

Well new technologies are always on the rise, for example before you probably wouldn't have written Android or Objective-C D applications, but then wanted to learn it and the survey there is just to give an overview over the quality & availability of D tutorials in these fields.

Fixed spoken language

We have over 25 responses now. I have slightly changed the survey, if you had entered USA or United States in the form, please update your answer to the dropdown value "United States of America (USA)" if you still have the edit link in your history

Yeah nice initiative.There's something similar for Nim and about this i remember that there was a question about the number of source line of code, 0 to 1000, 1000 to 10000, etc... but it's too late i think.(https://nim-lang.org/blog/2016/09/03/community-survey-results-2016.html)

You will have to massage the data a bit. The spelling of words created more diverse answers than necessary. Everyone learned D in english but there are 7 different columns listed (English, ENGLISH, edglish, eglish etc.)

yeah for countries I fixed that already, I thought adding a regex making people capitalize the words would unify it but instead they write all caps...
