I've wanted to run a really thorough survey of iOS developer opinion for a long time.

Some people were surprised by what I considered comprehensive. 😬 Despite that, I decided to go ahead with it anyway, and I'm glad I did because 2,290 of you found time to fill in the 109 question survey. 😍 That's a remarkable set of data, and I've spent the last few weeks putting together a view of those results.

This first version of the site I just published has the raw survey results and a few analysis articles written by me. However, the analysis is far from complete, and that's intentional. It wouldn't be a community survey if the analysis only represented my opinion. So, more analysis is coming but there's easily enough there to make for fascinating reading already.

So without further ado... Take a look at the results of the first ever iOS Developer Community Survey!
