Where do Rubyists go?
This questionnaire aims to identify which programming languages Ruby programmers are interested in and the reasons why these other languages are appealing to them. This is done out of interest and as part of the preparation for my talk “Where do Rubyists go?” that also wants to take a look at the most popular languages.

Please only answer this questionnaire if you did Ruby in the past or are currently doing Ruby. If you didn't learn any new languages that's also great and a very valuable answer :)

Results will also be published in blog form (probably early 2018). Free text field answers will not be published in full. They're safe with me (Tobi / @PragTob). I might quote extracts of answers but only if there's no personally identifying information.

For the free form text fields please aim to be concise, I want to read and categorize all of them so half a blog post might be interesting but quite challenging for me to go through everything then.
