This leads me to last week. In order to have some data, I decided to run an informal backup survey targeted at the SQL community. The results floored me: 344 of you decided to take my short survey. This really helps me understand some of the trends out there and now I want to share those results with you.
Before I get started, I want to first thank each and every person who responded from the bottom of my heart. This data is the result of your participation. Secondly, I want to underscore the “informal” nature of this. There’s a lot of holes that can probably be poked in the process, but I think the data is still useful and can give people insight into the trends.
I’ve posted raw data along with a few tools out on GitHub, where you are welcome to download and play with it.
Check out Mike’s findings and then dig into the data on GitHub.
