Our 2017 Community Survey: Tell us how we’re doing

Here at SilverStripe we want to get to know the open source community better! Now's your opportunity to give us an idea about what drives the open source community and win some great prizes while you're at it.

Hey you! We’re keen to get to know you better. You can help our understanding of what drives the SilverStripe open source community by responding to our 2017 community survey. It’s an anonymous survey with 15 simple questions that’ll take you less than five minutes to complete.

Take part in our community survey

If you add your email address to the response up until Monday, 27th of November, you’ll automatically be in the draw for two of our awesome t-shirts. You can also win an exclusive SilverStripe laptop sleeve that’s so far only been available to employees of SilverStripe Ltd.

We’re regularly asking the same questions to determine trends, and make better decisions on where to focus our collective efforts. Should we improve our documentation, add features to, or blog about all the cool stuff happening in the community? All of these are important activities, but with data from a survey response we can set informed priorities. While we have many channels to reach out to the community, it’s often hard to see the bigger picture - particularly from our small island here in the Pacific (SilverStripe’s headquarters are in New Zealand). The results get summarised on this blog (check out the 2015 and 2016 results).

Thanks for your time

  • I just tried SS 4.1 and was astonished about the new clear design and the very quickly responding site.
    Great work you did!

    the second step would be to take add ons in.
    I tried to set up the flexslider from dynamic but didn't succeed at once.

    Keep on the good work you did so far!
