Survey Results for the First Annual Delphi Code Monkey Survey

There were 373 respondents but the statistics shown here only reflect a portion of that, because SurveyMonkey wants $25 US from me to give me fully detailed results. Given that the final numbers are unlikely to be much different from these, I'm going to leave these as they are.  30% of respondents left the "other tools" question blank, which is interesting.

Some interesting responses from the "other" category:

* Some people were in professional categories other than the ones described, such as "retired".

* Other commonly stated worries included financial/pay level concerns, and concerns about whether they can afford to keep up with buying new versions of Delphi, or if they can compete with cheaper contractors, perhaps offshore.

I was pleased to see that although the experience meter tips towards "oldtimers", there are some inexperienced and only slightly experienced readers.  If anyone wants to fire me any comments on what beginner topics they would like to see me covering, please fire some comments up in the comment box.

The next time I run a survey it won't be on survey monkey, it will be my own homebrew PHP script survey.   Thanks everyone!
