The Programming Historian is seeking to identify and remove barriers that might make it difficult or less appealing for certain users to engage with the project. Our goal is to provide both a learning resource and a publication venue for people of all shapes and sizes. By filling out this survey, you are helping us to make a more accessible resource. Thank you.

If you would like to get in touch, please email

* 1. Which of the following ways have you engaged with the Programming Historian? (check all that apply)

* 2. Which ways would you be interested in contributing to the Programming Historian?

* 3. On a scale of 1 (novice) to 6 (advanced), how would you rate your confidence with technology?

* 4. Please select which if any skills you have well enough to describe casually to a friend

* 5. Do you consider contributions to the Programming Historian a form of academic publication? Please tell us why or why not.

* 6. The Programming Historian asks contributing authors to submit their lessons in 'markdown format' and to make submissions via a 'Github Pull Request'. As an unfunded project, this free workflow allows us to minimise costs and editor time. Do you have any comments on this submission workflow and its accessibility?

* 7. The Programming Historian uses an open review process, in which both the reviewers and authors post publicly during the review and editing phase. It is our hope that this openness maintains civility between all parties, which is often lost in double-blind reviews. Thinking about your own feelings about open online conversations, would this policy increase or decrease your enthusiasm to submit a tutorial? Why?

* 8. If you had to make one change to the Programming Historian to make it more accessible and open, what would it be?

* 9. Is there anything we missed in this survey? Please tell us and give a suggestion about how to account for it

* 10. Which best describes how you identify your gender?
