Thanks Pieter --
I've added a lot of questions to the etherpad. I hope that collaborative
editing was your intent. :)

I've taken a few of these style of developer surveys since attending Google
I/O last year and also signing up to play with some IoT-type platforms, so
I incorporated some of my learnings from those surveys.

Based on what I've seen, I'd highly encourage a three-to-four page survey
with about five questions per page.

Also, connection to other app devs or travel and feature-promoting
enticements could be just as valuable as "prizes" as those we want to reach
are often highly-compensated earners. Devs will answer surveys if they
think it'll change the platform, but might not bite for other reasons.
Let's ensure the questions appear actionable.
