Dear Ruby Developer,
After mining the complete rubygems.org repository we performed some network analysis and visualized the complete Ruby Ecosystem. We then performed cluster analysis to see how the gems and developers are spread throughout the ecosystem.
Are you interested to see what gems and developers we identified within your cluster?
To know more about these identified clusters we would like to ask you some questions by means of a survey. These questions are related to the other gems and developers we found in your cluster. The survey will be of great value to us and will only take you 5 minutes of your time.
Please help us help the Ruby community. Knowing how the Ruby ecosystem is characterized will help us to steer it into a more profitable one.
Please note that we only link the answers of this survey to the identified clusterID. We will not use this information for other purposes than intended for this research. This research is an extent of “Steering Insight: An Exploration of the Ruby Software Ecosystem”
