Easy Money - Developer Focus Group Week of 11/3

Why should you consider the focus group below? My personal experience is that focus groups

  • are almost always interesting - and are often fun
  • provide insights around what's next from companies
  • sometimes provide a forum for providing feedback that will actually be taken into account
  • are occasionally worthwhile financially
  • nearly always lead to more focus group opportunities
Extra exclamation marks aside, here is an interesting one aimed at Developers. Since I'm a very low-grade hack, I don't come anywhere near qualifying for this Gilmore Research focus group scheduled in Seattle for next week - but maybe you do...
