The Web Design [and developer] Survey, 2007

From A List Apart:

Designers, developers, project managers. Writers and editors. Information architects and usability specialists. People who make websites have been at it for more than a dozen years, yet almost nothing is known, statistically, about our profession. Who are we? Where do we live? What are our titles, our skills, our educational backgrounds? Where and with whom do we work? What do we earn? What do we value?

It’s time we learned the answers to these and other questions about web design. And nobody is better qualified than the readers of A List Apart to provide the answers. Participate in our first annual survey to increase knowledge of web design and boost respect for the profession. Selected participants, chosen by random drawing, will win one free ticket to An Event Apart event held in the continental U.S.; an Apple 30GB video iPod, an Event Apart jump drive, or a funky A List Apart T-shirt.

This survey is so important for our industry. How often have you wondered where your salary fit within the industry standard? Are you being paid enough? How do you rank among your peers? Of course these questions are taboo to ask of coworkers, but this survey will help break the ice.


I Took the survey

I’m Naked and it feels great…

…a bit brisk though.

If you’re wondering why my site is missing it’s design and appears a bit ‘naked’, it’s because I’m participating in CSS Naked Day ’07. To support web standards this site will be naked on April 5th.

CSS Naked Day is the brainchild of Dustin Diaz:

“The idea behind this event is to promote Web Standards. Plain and simple. This includes proper use of (x)html, semantic markup, a good hierarchy structure, and of course, a good ‘ol play on words. It’s time to show off your <body>.”
