  • Software Development Trends for 2014

    2014's lurking around the corner: what technologies will take off and have a major impact, which of the fashions and fads of 2013 will become important trends and game changers in 2014.

  • How do you document your APIs?

    Well documented APIs enhance the experience for developers and have become an essential requirement for defining an API's success. As a result, there are a variety of tools targeted at API producers to automate the process of generating richer documents that reduces costs and time and dramatically improves developer adoption.

  • How Do You Access Your Relational Data from Java?

    The Java language and platform offers a vast range of options when it comes to working with relational data, from raw JDBC to fully blown Object/Relational mapping (ORM) tools.

  • What Puzzles You Most About Functional Programming?

    With so much diversity, it’s hard to define the exact scope of what exactly functional programming is. Is it a question of how to design your program, that is, using functions as the primary abstraction? Or is it about programming with mathematical functions, meaning pure functions that do not have side effects? And what are those monads again?

  • What's Your Next Language on the Javascript Platform?

    JavaScript VMs are mature and ubiquitous - but what's the best language to write code for it? A long list of languages targeting JavaScript exists, but which one will you use for your next project?

  • Testing Tools for .NET Developers

    It often happens that the tools we rely on the most are also the most immature. We tolerate them because they fulfill an essential role. Other tools are really well designed, but aren’t important enough to justify the cost in time and money. And a rare few hit both marks. InfoQ wants to know which tools .NET testing tools you like to use and which you need to use.

  • Ruby On Rails State of Practice: Testing

    Rails developers can draw from a huge pool of libraries to build their applications. Dozends of options are available Just for templating: do you use ERB, HAML, SASS, or do you prefer a JavaScript approach with Backbone.js or Knockout.js? The possibilities are endless, so we want to find out what our readers are using, or planning to use in the future.

  • NoSQL Database Adoption Trends

    In this research survey on NoSQL database adoption trends, InfoQ would like to learn what NoSQL databases you are currently using or planning on using in your applications.

  • API Management Platforms Capabilities

    Every API program needs a set of capabilities to manage the technical and business aspects. The set of capabilities vary for each program based on the criteria for success but with this survey we want to find out which of them are most valued by API providers.

  • Ruby On Rails State of Practice: Frontend

    Rails developers can draw from a huge pool of libraries to build their applications. Dozens of options are available Just for templating: do you use ERB, HAML, SASS, or do you prefer a JavaScript approach with Backbone.js or Knockout.js? The possibilities are endless, so we want to find out what our readers are using, or planning to use in the future, for their frontend.

  • Top JavaScript MVC Frameworks

    JavaScript front-end codebases have been growing larger and more difficult to maintain. As a way to solve this issue developers have been turning to MVC frameworks which promise increased productivity and maintainable code. As part of the new community-driven research initiative, InfoQ is examining the adoption of such frameworks and libraries by developers.

  • Ruby On Rails State of Practice: Deployment and Management

    Rails developers can draw from a huge pool of libraries to build their applications. Dozens of options are available Just for templating: do you use ERB, HAML, SASS, or do you prefer a JavaScript approach with Backbone.js or Knockout.js? The possibilities are endless, so we want to find out what our readers are using, or planning to use in the future, for deployment and management .

  • Major Software Development Trends for 2013

    With 2012 coming to an end and everybody talking about what lies ahead in 2013, InfoQ has conducted a quick poll amongst its editors about the trends that have a good potential to get significant traction or even dominated the software development community during the next year. These trends include everything from specific programming languages, platforms, development methodologies, and more.

  • Top Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Toolsets

    In the recent past there has been a sudden upsurge in the number of competing ALM offerings from vendors that previously offered a subset of the toolset.With this survey, we would like to measure the ability to execute and the completeness of vision of each of these competing toolsets.

  • What's Your Next JVM Language?

    Is the Java language limiting your programmers' productivity and you're looking for an alternative? Which of the many JVM languages out there will you pick?

  • Why Are You Not Using Functional Languages?

    Functional programming promises many benefits - but its adoption in the industry and the enterprise has been slow. What are the big obstacles to the adoption of functional programming?

  • Top 20 Web Frameworks for the JVM

    Since the early days of Java, there have been many frameworks and libraries that have tried to improve web developers productivity and this trend has continued with JVM languages like Groovy, Scala, JRuby, Clojure, etc. Using the new community research tool, we at InfoQ want to get YOUR opinions on the relative importance and maturity of a variety of web frameworks that are targeted for the JVM.

  • JavaScript MVC Frameworks vs. Compile to JavaScript Languages

    InfoQ is examining the adoption of JavaScript MVC frameworks, compared to languages that transcompile to JavaScript, for front-end development. Please vote and share your opinions.

  • What are the Most Important and Mature Cross Platform Mobile Tools?

    InfoQ have launched a new community driven research tool, and one of the areas we want to examine is the importance and adoption level of cross platform mobile tools that aim to help developers deliver applications on a variety of platforms. Please vote and review the responses from other voters using this new service.

  • What Are Your Priorities for Java and the JVM?

    This community-driven research, looks at InfoQ readers' priorities for Java 9 and beyond, both language and platform.

  • What are the Most Valuable Tools for HTML5 Development?

    As the HTML5 features and functionality have been growing over the last few years, so have the tools that aim to make some of these powerful APIs more accesible and help developers be more productive. This is an InfoQ research question about which of these tools are most favored by developers.
