As part of my Masters thesis, I’m running a study about how developers search for information online. There exists a significant body of work on programmers' information needs on academic channels, but it is recognised that few of these insights make their way into industry, one of the reasons being that most studies are conducted in the lab using artificial coding tasks.

The study involves anonymously tracking the development-related searches real programmers make over a period of two weeks. If you’d like to help me out in making a small contribution to the design of better development tools, please respond to the short survey below.
