Latest Adobe Research Survey

I took the survey because it offered "Chance to win up to $500 for sharing your opinions!".

Who couldn't use $500?

The problem was, my work is sort of odd. 

  • My "paying job" is for a a publicly traded company
  • I provide a great deal of support to a non-profit 
  • I do stuff for myself for free (because I'm cheap)

There should have been a comments section at the end, where I could have explained. My answers to a lot of the questions would have been different depending on what perspective I was answering from.
I'm firmly rooted on the development side of the house in my paying job. That means less graphic design and more UX and web design.
In support of the non-profit: it's a non-profit so I'm doing just about anything imaginable.
The stuff I do for myself is random and can incorporate any of the other two and more.
In all cases, I'm pay for my own, single, subscription. But, as the survey tended to lead me to believe, the cost for the equivalent subscription I use now is about to increase, that may change.
If I could have taken the survey twice: once from the corporate and once from the non-profit perspective, my answers would have been drastically different. 

I'm also annoyed/concerned that there was no mention of ColdFusion. With a graphics/publishing background, ColdFusion is the simplest and easiest application server I've ever used.
Oh, and the auto-mated chat thingy is hilarious in it's near uselessness.
Finally, I've no idea if anyone from Adobe will ever read this, though I wish they would. I simply couldn't think of any other way to reach them.

Surveys are usually administered by third party providers and the data supplied to Adobe, so I don't think you can communicate that to Adobe directly.

don't worry about it.

 

i usually quit before completing surveys because the questions are so "off" for my situation that i feel my answers are more-and-more misleading.  (and i'm pretty sure they don't include a comments section because no human will read the survey.  surveyers just want to amass data and then analyze it.)

 

anyway, you might be able to find an appropriate place here to leave a suggestion, https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html

 

almost finally, i thank you for filing out the survey.  that's not going to get you closer to the $500, but maybe you get some improved karma in the next life.  (that's my feeling about my catch-and-release of spiders in my house.)

 

and finally:
