Asking for Your Feedback

Post from August 28, 2008 (↻ March 5, 2021), filed under .

I’d like to ask for 15 seconds (meaning exactly 15 seconds) of your precious time to take a really short survey related to this website, to learn about your perspective and ideas:

Survey: How do you rate

Thank you, I truly appreciate your help!

As a quick heads-up, I’m heading to the United States tomorrow to work in our California offices for two weeks, and to go on vacation for one week to tour the Southwest. During that time I may or may not have the time to respond to mail very quickly, or to publish new posts on this site. It depends; I’ll try.

About Me

Jens Oliver Meiert, on September 30, 2021.

I’m Jens, and I’m an engineering lead—currently manager for Developer Experience at LivePerson—and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for Google, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly. I love trying things, sometimes including philosophy, art, and adventure. Here on I share some of my views and experiences.

If you have a question or suggestion about what I write, please leave a comment (if available) or a message. Thank you!

    Will you publish the results?
    I wonder what your other readers think 😊

    Noch vergessen (ID 1262105):

    die Diskussionen hier in den Kommentaren sind nicht benutzerfreundlich, wenn man nich von Anfang an dranbleibt. Eine Baumstruktur wäre super. Oder aber eine Zusammenfassung der Diskussion nach einiger Zeit (nicht nur, wenn dadurch eine Revision des Artikels folgt)

    I think you should have asked more (and more specific) questions in the survey. Maybe, ‘would we like more multimedia or graphics’?

    Also, what does it mean ‘technical quality’?

    @lazar: I think he applies to the quality of the code of as well as doesn’t he? But this would be very subjective then, hmm …

    Louis, not necessarily, but the feedback I got so far already suggests that 😊

    p2a, in English, please. While there are probably more useful ways to organize comments, the structure seems to be pretty standard. I’ll think about it.

    Lazar, I considered going for more detail, but I know that people just don’t like surveys that take half a day of their time, so I went for a very simple format that still left some room for these remarks under “comments and suggestions.” With “technical quality” I do indeed refer to quite simplified feedback for the frontend code used on this site.

    Anonymous, thanks for clarifying 😊 However, I’m not sure if that is really “subjective” (which reminds me of something…) 😉

    All, thank you for your contributions! This is awesome!

    I don’t really know how good QuestionPro really is, but I just wanted to tell you to keep an eye out for I’ve been beta testing it and it is nothing short of brilliant. 😊

    @Jens: After I have read your recommended blog article about opinions and so on I would modify my previous comment: the feedback to ‘technical quality’ of the brand ‘Jens Meiert’ is imho „subjective“ concerning opinions that are not linked with any arguments. Right?
