Exercism's mission: learning about your learning

TL;DR: We've put together a survey and would be forever grateful to you if you took a few minutes to fill it out: https://goo.gl/forms/MIxRHEE3dhqUk7I33​ 

The longer version...

One of the first steps in our quest to make Exercism delightful is asking a lot of questions. Some of these we'll be asking ourselves, looking for answers in books and white-papers and by reading how others have achieved the same things.

The more interesting questions specific to Exercism are the ones we'll be asking you.

So to start, we've put together a survey focused on a few key areas we want to think about early in detail. We hope that you'll have the time to share your thoughts, feelings, ideas, and/or streams of consciousness if any of these questions hit home.

You can find the survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/MIxRHEE3dhqUk7I33​ 

We've received over 280 responses so far, and the answers are very, very exciting. We'll be writing up the results in a blog post, detailing the motivations behind the questions, our hopes and dreams in asking them, as well as what we've learned. We'll also sanitize and anonymize the data and make it available for download.

Needless to say, we'd love to hear your voice in these data.
