Help shape the future of

Since 2016, thousands of Gophers around the world have helped the Go project by sharing their thoughts via our annual Go Developer Survey. Your feedback has played an enormous role in driving changes to our language, ecosystem, and community, including the gopls language server, the latest generics draft, the module mirror, and so much more. And of , we publicly share each year’s results, so we can all benefit from the community’s insights.

This year we’ve streamlined the survey to shorten the time it takes to complete and improved the survey’s accessibility. The specific questions each person will see are randomly selected, so folks who’ve taken the survey in prior years may not see all of the questions they are used to. Rest assured that they are still there. This approach allows us to ask about a wider variety of topics than in prior years while also reducing the survey’s length.

Today we are launching the 2020 Go Developer Survey. We’d love to hear from everyone who uses Go, used to use Go, or is interested in using Go, to help ensure the language, community, and ecosystem fit the needs of the people closest to it. Please help us shape Go’s future by participating in this 10-minute survey by November 8th: Take the 2020 Go Developer Survey.

Spread the word!

We need as many Gophers as possible to participate in this survey to help us better understand our global user base. We’d be grateful if you would spread the word by sharing this post on your social network feeds, around the office, at virtual meet-ups, and in other communities. Thank you!
