Mozilla Survey: What makes a good developer platform?
Nick Nguyen, the Mozilla Add-ons Lead, has posted a blog entry prompting developers to participate in a survey about developer platforms. The goal of the survey is to help the add-ons team improve the development experience, while "nurturing new extension developers."
The survey contains a total of seven questions. The Mozilla team want to know which platforms developers have previously developed applications for and which platforms are the best in terms of community, documentation and ease of use. They also want to know what can be done to help potential extension developers to create the "Next Great Extension."
Nguyen and his team work closely with the Mozilla Labs team and both teams will be using the feedback from the survey to "make development easier, more fun and more rewarding." According to Nguyen, once the survey period has been completed, the team will share the results with the community via the Labs blog.
