Node.js Foundation 2016 User Survey Report

The Node.js Foundation recently conducted an expansive user survey to better understand Node.js users (you, or maybe you :). We were interested in getting a better sense of the type of development work you use Node.js for, what other technologies you use with Node.js, how the Node.js Foundation can help you get more out of Node.js, how you learn new languages, and more.

The “big three” resources developers and tech leaders use to learn new technology — Docs, Online tutorials and Forums — absolutely dwarf every other type of resource

We were really excited that over 1,700 people took the survey, which was open for 15 days from January 13 to January 28, 2016. Thank you for those that participated.
