Happy new year! I hope you all enjoyed a break from work over the holidays, I know I enjoyed some much-needed downtime (although I did use some of it to start writing a new app… Will I ever learn?! 😬). I also want to wish you all a healthy, successful, and happy 2021. Even though this year is starting in crisis, I’m confident things will improve.

At the end of last year, I wrote that I wouldn’t be running the community survey this year. To give it a chance of survival, I offered the opportunity for other members of the community to continue it, if anyone was interested. 👀

I’m delighted to say that Chris Hefferman and Dragos Dobrean stepped up and have been working hard for the last few weeks revising the questionnaire, fixing my mistakes, and adjusting the questions to be more relevant for 2020.

Just like last year, you won’t be asked to identify yourself and all responses are 100% anonymous, and this is still your survey which means you’ll have access to all of the aggregated results when they’re published.

As of earlier today, this year’s questionnaire is now open for responses, so what are you waiting for? Please spend a few minutes contributing to the 2020 iOS Developer Community Survey. I can’t wait to see how things have changed since last year.

And finally...

What I tried to do was make this program as faithful to the version in the movie as I possibly could.

Remarkable attention to detail in this fascinating video.
