My name is Kevin Carillo and I am a PhD student at the School of Information Management of Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand).
I am currently running a survey that aims at studying how the experience of a Perl community newcomer has an influence on this person's actions and project contributions in the community.
I have already talked to Kieren Diment (who ran the Perl survey: http://survey.perlfoundation.org) and some of the Perl Foundation board. They have all been keen to help and supportive.
The survey targets contributors to Perl sub-projects endorsed by the Perl Foundation and who joined Perl within the last 2 years. Would you mind letting anyone you think is eligible know about the survey? (I have attached a survey information sheet that you may pass around). Could you also recommend other suitable places I could send the invitation to?
I have written a post about the research project on blogs.perl.org that can be found at:
This survey is anonymous, and no information is used to identify participants. The Human Ethics Committee of the School of Information Management has approved this research project.
I expect the survey to take around 20 minutes.
