Attention all trend-finders and part-time statisticians: The results of the Perl Survey 2007 are now available.
Michael Schwern presented a basic analysis of the results were recapped at Pittsburgh Perl Workshop this past weekend, and I’m still trying to get a summary to post here. Skud is also working on her own analysis of the data, and will post it to the Perl Survey results page.
No need to wait for them, though. We encourage you to do your own analysis of the data, and tell us and the world what you think it means. The data is released under a Creative Commons license, and I’ve created Data::PerlSurvey2007 to give you a quick & dirty way to slurp up the data into Perl code and have fun trying to find your own correlations and interesting insights.
It’s simple code. It just slurps up the .csv file available on perlsurvey.org (and also included with the distro) and gives you an array of hashrefs for each completed response. They look like this:
Nuthin’ fancy, but I hope this gives people a starting point without having to worry about the mundane parts of slurping up CSV files.
