Survey on the Role of Music During Your Software Engineering Work

In some domains, studies have shown that music can improve the productivity of workers for some tasks. We invite you to participate in our survey about the role music plays during your software engineering work. Your answers will help us to find out more on how to improve developer productivity.

The following survey should take less than 10 minutes of your time. With your participation you get the chance to enter our lottery to win one of two Amazon gift certificates with a value of $50 each.

This is the link to the survey: http://bit.ly/musicUZH
Edit: The survey is now closed, thanks to everyone who participated.

We will keep your survey responses anonymous. We will NOT attribute answers to any particular participant. At the end of the survey, you are asked to insert your mail address voluntarily to contact you in case you want to participate in the lottery.

We would greatly appreciate your participation! Thank you!

Please feel free to contact Thomas Fritz at fritz@ifi.uzh.ch if you have any further questions.

SEALs erforschen, was Bisons Entwickler empfinden

Forscher des Software Evolution and Architecture Lab der Universität Zürich nutzen biometrische Sensoren, um die Gefühle und Gedanken von Bisons Softwareentwicklern zu untersuchen. Mithilfe von Sensoren für die elektrische Aktivität des Gehirns (EEG), elektrodermale Aktivität (EDA), Körpertemperatur und Herzfrequenz sollen Entwickler in Zukunft beispielsweise besser unterstützt werden, wenn sie bei einem schwierigen Problem stecken bleiben oder wenn sie sehr konzentriert sind und nicht unterbrochen werden sollten.
