tl;dr: It's time for the annual Developer Satisfaction Survey! This survey is for everyone who uses any of the tools or services mentioned below, whether you would call yourself a "developer" or not. Closing date is March 24th.

As a feedback to the survey:
The survey contains *mandatory* questions to rate one's satisfaction with each of these services. How should one rate the satisfaction with a service that one does not use at all? At least for my perception this is not possible and therefore the survey is only suitable for everyone who uses *all* listed services at least to some point.
I wonder what is the motivation for making these questions mandatory? As a user I am often frustrated by those, because I have the choice to either cancel filling out the form, or risk to dilute the results. 


The Wikimedia Foundation is soliciting your feedback to measure developer satisfaction and determine where to invest resources in the future. This is the third iteration of this survey. We want feedback from everyone who uses any of the below tools or services, whether you call yourself a "developer" or not.

Topics covered include:
    * Local Development Environment
    * Beta Cluster / Staging Environment
    * Testing / CI
    * Code Review
    * Deployments
    * Account Management and Onboarding
    * Observability
    * Phabricator
    * Developer documentation
    * General Feedback

We are soliciting feedback from all Wikimedia developers, including Staff, 3rd party contributors and volunteer developers. The survey will be open for a little over 2 weeks, closing on Wednesday March 24th.

NOTE: This survey will be conducted via a third-party service, which may be subject to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Developer_Satisfaction_Survey_Privacy_Statement
