We are pleased to introduce to you, Uganda’s first-ever nationwide developer survey; the Annual Developer Survey powered by Andela. This is something we’ve been working on for the better part of the year so far and we are excited to finally share it with you.
We started working on this idea after several conversations with members of Uganda’s tech ecosystem; from tech companies, government representatives, investors, bloggers to developers across the nation at various experience levels. From these interactions, it became clear that we all care deeply about the ecosystem and want to do our part to see it grow. But first, we must understand it. The conversations we took part in revealed that collectively, we do not know enough about the trends and patterns in our ecosystem to enable us to take targeted action. So we figured, why not ask you, the developers to tell us — and so the Annual Developer Survey was born.
We are excited about this survey because of the insights that we shall all be able to draw from the data, but more importantly, the nature of conversations we can start to have after we gain a better understanding of our unique Ugandan tech ecosystem. By filling the survey, you take us one step closer towards figuring out how to get more people into software development and moving those already doing software development to the next level.
Our commitment to you is that we shall process the anonymous data that you provide us with the highest level of integrity and share the results (and any insights, patterns, and trends observed) with you, with an unprecedented level of transparency.
Here’s our ask, join us on our journey to better understand the state of technology in Uganda by filling the survey here, and when you are done, nudge a friend or two to do the same. We cannot do this alone; we need each and every Ugandan developer to speak up and let their voice be heard!
