Learn more about how DevOps teams must adopt a more agile development process, working in parallel instead of waiting on other teams to finish their components or for resources to become available, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

I spend most of my work time talking about careers with thousands of software professionals every year (some who are actively seeking new jobs). Many of these conversations with developers include a list of gripes about their current employers and a wish list of criteria for their next job. After almost twenty years in the business, it's hard to ignore several patterns that emerge regarding job satisfaction as it relates to a host of factors. 

I've created a short survey to try and discover what makes developers happy or unhappy in their jobs, and I intend on writing a follow-up article to share my results with readers. Please take a moment to take our survey (~20 questions, all true/false and multiple choice), and keep an eye out for an article on the results in the coming days/weeks.
