Between November 2013 and April 2014, we conducted the industry’s
learning survey, in order to learn more about software
developers’ training needs and industry trends. We have published those
findings in a comprehensive report, now available for download.
In this blog series, we will explore the report and its
implications, and share ways in which L&D, R&D, and HR managers, along
with tech executives, can best apply the findings to the development of
holistic and comprehensive learning strategies.
About the Survey
Nearly 400 software development professionals from more than 200
companies, across 23 industries and 10 countries provided their views on their
current work environments, technology trends, and the ways in which they learn
best. Survey respondents’ roles covered a variety of positions, including
software developers, project managers, and development managers.
The survey was structured around three broad areas: Developer
Learning Behaviors, Developer Training Preferences, and Developer Training
Requirements. Both closed- and open-ended question formats were used to collect
consistent, quantitative responses, while delving into qualitative responses
about underlying issues.
Our goals are to help you use this data to:
- Increase staff productivity levels, and the
quality of the resulting applications
- Improve employee engagement and morale
- Better anticipate software developers’
technology training needs
- Increase the ROI on training investments through
better alignment of needs with solutions
