The Nix Marketing Team is pleased to announce the 2nd edition of the official Nix Community Survey! Please take 5-10 minutes to complete it.
Our community is growing very rapidly every month. This survey aims to gain insights into the the community members and what they care about the most when it comes to the Nix ecosystem. The information gathered from this survey will be used to improve Nix, Nixpkgs, and NixOS to better meet the needs of the community.
The responses are anonymized, we will NOT collect any personally identifying information (name, address, IP, …).
The questions in the survey cover:
• Your background (e.g. What region of the world are you from? What’s your current occupation?)
• The projects you use in the ecosystem and how often you use them (e.g. Are you using NixOS? How often do you use Nix?)
• How you use the projects (e.g. Do you use Nix in production servers?)
• What you like and dislike about the projects (e.g. What do you think is already great about Nix? What should contributors focus on improving?)
Last year, the Nix Community Survey 2022 received more than 2,000 responses! We hope to make this year a success as well!
The Nix Community Survey is, in fact, a huge help for all maintainer and contributor teams. For instance, the Nix Documentation Team used it to plan and prioritize their work. Of course, the Nix Marketing Team also used this data to better understand the key strengths of Nix that can be promoted.
As usual, we are looking for feedback on the survey itself to understand how we can do this better in the future, don’t hesitate to send us a message.
The survey will be available until July 10th, we are eagerly waiting for your thoughts!
Thank you all for your contributions to making Nix better,
– The Nix Marketing Team
