for my bachelor's thesis I would like to research adoption factors
regarding the use of Ruby On Rails. To do this, I need to have
responses from at least 100 RoR companies and I'm wondering if you
could pinpoint me in the right direction to set this up. In the coming
weeks I will have to develop a website where companies/programmers can
fill in the survey, so I can analyze the results later on. I would
like to have as many responses as possible and therefore my question
to you is, are you willing to participate in such a survey?
The purpose of my study is to find out what technical and non-
technical motivations are present among companies to use RoR. Since
there is no (recent) publication on this topic, I'm really really
hoping a lot of you are willing to help me out.
Please reply with your thoughts on this research.
I've only just started to push RoR commerically, but I'd be happy to
participate if my input is useful
I believe all of your input is useful I need as much feedback as
possible to make the results more valid. I'm not quite sure how to
promote this survey. Should I set up a website where people can fill
in the survey and be listed on the site as a direct reward? Should I
contact RoR blogs/sites in order to promote the survey? Which sites
should I consider?
I'm also eager to know what are the barriers or hesitations from
people that don't want to participate.
If you want to participate, please send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org and state your contact information (company
name, email address and perhaps other useful contact information).
Please reply to this topic if you have any feedback whatsoever.
Thanks a lot guys

I think what would maybe be useful and give more back to the RoR community,
is to do as you say and set up a survey website, but also allow the
inclusion of case studies. That way companies get listed, and visitors
learn about RoR in action. Seems like you could kill a few birds with one
