First thanks to all who took part, rates can be an alluding and tricky subject at times.
There were over 50 submissions but with duplicates and 2 entries of very low value i decided to take them out as they would skew the data. These values of $10 and $8 for day rate were also maybe false or if true must have been from developing countries. I was initially going to include them but for more accurate data it was decided to remove those low submissions
In next years survey i will include geographic data. A lot more work but it would be another interesting demographic to study.
Some interesting data. Personally i’m a little surprised at the overwhelming number of front end developers. I expected that number to be in the majority of back end developers. It shows that ExpressionEngine really appeals and has attracted a huge number of front end devs.
There are some massive projects put together with ExpressionEngine.
Overall i’m very pleased with how it went. Twitter pulled in a number of entries and it was topped up with visiting and reaching out with Director-ee. Thanks again to all who took part and please look out for next years survey/
