!All answers will be treated anonymously!
PURPOSE: Research into Object Oriented concepts to figure out how research and education can be improved based on reality. All data collected will be made OPEN SOURCE once analyzed (and totally anonymized!).
RESPONSIBLES: Tony Gorschek (Blekinge Inst. of Tech., SWEDEN) and Ewan Tempero (Auckland Univ., NEW ZEALAND).
WHY YOU SHOULD BOTHER: We are researchers in Software Engineering trying to explain why the theory of Object Oriented Development does not correspond to Practice. We want to figure out how we can improve research and education to better reflect reality. The application of this may be the development of better and more usabable and useful tools, programming languages, and education.
For this we need your help.
To keep the survey short, we've simplified some of the responses so we realise there may be cases where you don't like any that we offer, but please pick the response that best fits the spirit of the questionnaire. Please only choose "I don't know what you mean"-type answers if you really don't know what the question is on about. Feel free to use the provided textboxes to explain your choice (this will help us a lot).
