curl and libcurl user survey 2020
In order to better understand where we are and where to go next, this is a set of questions to poll interests and opinions from users of curl and libcurl. The questions are mostly the same as last year and the year before that, to make it easier for us to see year-by-year changes and detect trends.

You answer anonymously (to the extent you can be anonymous in a Google form), but please stay honest and fair. Answer only once per person. Just skip the questions you can't or won't answer.

The poll is open fourteen days from Monday May 18th until midnight (CEST) Sunday May 31th 2020.

Please share this link to other fellow curl and libcurl users to allow us to get the widest possible feedback.
