  2. 2. ABOUT THE SURVEY • Survey was open to the Eclipse community from April 12 – May 10, 2013. The primary method for promoting the survey was news posting on eclipse.org home page, twitter, Facebook and forums postings. • 1070 individuals responded to the survey and 920 completed the survey. The results are based on the 920 completed survey responses. • We received 355 (38.6%) completed survey responses from Germany. This was due to press coverage of the survey by a popular German developer portal. • This report is a summary of the overall results. Some results of some questions only include the more popular options. In addition, not all the questions are reported. The details data is available at http://eclipse.org/org/press-release/20130612_eclipsesurvey2013.php • Eclipse Foundation has run a similar surveys in previous years. Comparison in this report are from the results of these surveys. • 2012 http://www.eclipse.org/org/press-release/20120608_eclipsesurvey2012.php • 2011 http://www.eclipse.org/org/press-release/20110610_survey.php • 2010 http://www.eclipse.org/org/press-release/20100604_survey2010.php • 2009 http://www.eclipse.org/org/press-release/20090527_survey09.php • 2007 http://www.eclipse.org/org/press-release/20071106_cbsurvey.php Eclipse Open Source Developer Report 2013 2
