Rails Hosting Survey 2016

In 2009, we invited the community to participate in a survey about the state of hosting Ruby on Rails applications. At the time, we wanted to get a better understanding of how people were managing their deployment and hosting processes. Over the past seven years, we’ve evolved the survey to include questions about tools, frameworks, and workflows in order to see how the landscape has changed.

We invite you to participate, spread the word, and view the results!

Take the 2016 Survey

It's time, once again, to survey the Ruby on Rails community. We'll keep the survey open through May 8th, 2016. Please invite all of your friends and coworkers!
