Hello OS Devs! I'm a PhD student hosting an anonymous academic survey to better understand and improve upon the debugging practices and tools used by low-level developers (like os devs). Please consider helping progress this research and the building of better tools by completing a short survey!

My name is Dylan Lee, and I am a PhD student at the University of Tennessee. I have always been interested in systems level programming, and after getting the chance to build my own custom RISCV OS during undergrad, I was inspired to dive into research on the development and debugging tools used for this type of programming. Please consider contributing to this research by taking the short survey at the link below! Thank you!

Please contact me at dlee97@vols.utk.edu with any questions.

I saw your survey on reddit some days ago. One thing that I am concerned about (about such surveys in general, not only yours) is that you ask for a list of OSS that people contribute too. Even if I only list the largest projects that I contributed to (say, with > 100 contributors), the intersection of the contributor sets quite likely identifies me uniquely. I know that you probably do not want to use this info against the participants of your survey, but it still makes the entire survey effectively non-anonymous.
