In some domains, studies have shown that music can improve the productivity of workers for some tasks. We invite you to participate in our survey about the role music plays during your software engineering work. Your answers will help us to find out more on how to improve developer productivity.

The following survey should take less than 10 minutes of your time. With your participation you get the chance to enter our lottery to win one of two Amazon gift certificates with a value of $50 each.

We will keep your survey responses anonymous. We will NOT attribute answers to any particular participant. At the end of the survey, you are asked to insert your mail address voluntarily to contact you in case you want to participate in the lottery.


We would greatly appreciate your participation! Thank you!
