#Javascript survey results and #jetpack

Some time ago I have posted a call for javascript hackers to fill a survey in order to help me to create a better world.

0. Here are the results:

What OS you are using while hacking the code?

Gnu/Linux 239 40%
MS Windows 236 39%
MacOS 291 48%
Other 7 1%

What’s your location?

Europe 394 65%
South America 7 1%
North America 161 27%
Asia 23 4%
Africa 1 0%
Australia 8 1%
New Zealand 3 0%
Moon :) 17 3%
Other 15 2%
People may select more than one checkbox, so percentages may add up to more than 100%.

What is your IDE?

This was an input filed:
Aptana, Eclipse, TextMate,BBedit,Coda, Dreamweaver and more as you can see here.

Why I need that?

I am part of Mozilla’s JetPack community and I am researching how to make our life easier by creating plugins and snippets (maybe debuggers) for most popular IDE’s in the #JS world in order to allow rapid development of Firefox Addons using AddonSDK (a.k.a JetPack).

You can see my prototype here and version 0.2 here.

Can I help?

Of course you can. If you know how to write plugins for any IDE or if you have any other idea how we can make our life easier – please drop me a note here or on identi.ca nor twitter

I am going to FOSDEM. What about you?

FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event organized by the community for the community. The goal is to provide Free Software and Open Source developers and communities a place to meet to:

  • + Get in touch with other developers and projects;
  • + Be informed about the latest developments in the Free Software and Open Source world;
  • + Attend interesting talks and presentations held in large conference rooms by Free Software and Open Source project leaders and committers on various topics;
  • + To promote the development and the benefits of Free Software and Open Source solutions.
  • + and to SHARE knowledge with each other

Sharing the knowledge and ideas is the most valuable think you can get during FOSDEM and it’s free. There is no excuse not to be there.

If you are worried about anything, just feel free to ask me and I will help you, especially if this will be your first visit. If you are living for Free software NOR Open Source – you must be there.
