Survey of Software Developers

FLOSS is a study currently under way at the Institute of Infonomics, University of Maastricht and Berlecon Research, Berlin, and includes an automated analysis of source code as well as a survey of developers. This survey is part of a significant study sponsored by the European Commission that includes policy recommendations and will be a source of valuable information for the Free/Open Source community, businesses and policy makers.

Why a survey? To get developersĺ own opinions on a range of issues related to Free Software / Open Source. The online questionnaire is specifically intended to provide a mirror to the Free Software / Open Source community. The survey results will be updated and publicly available in real time even during the data collection period. Final results and analysis will also be freely published.
