The 2009 DevCentral Community Survey wrapped up last Thursday and the volume of participation simply crushed all previous DevCentral surveys. With over 500 respondents from around the world, this survey provided some remarkable insight into who you are, what types of things you’d like to see in the future, as well as some things you NEVER want to see from F5. (note: I’m saving this for a future blog post of it’s own)

Over the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing some interesting stats with you about your community. Thanks to everyone for your great input, your candid comments, and your continued support. Without you, DevCentral simply wouldn’t exist as it does today. We take your feedback seriously. Look for some new features and programs to emerge over the next few months that will be a direct result of your ideas and requests.

But, enough with all of the fluffy community talk. I know what you really care about: who wins one of those 7 iPod Touches?

Without further delay, here are the lucky 7:

  • claretian
  • dlarsen
  • Estradad
  • rmcree
  • chasecen
  • mcharette
  • glenmo

So, if you are one of these lucky folks, thanks for playing. Your iPod is on it’s way… Just be sure to subscribe to the Weekly Podcast and other videos on iTunes when you set it up.

Finally, thank you again to all of you who took time out of your busy day to help make DevCentral even better. Stay tuned – there are exciting things to come.

Note: survey winners were selected through the use of the www.random.org “True Random Number Generator”. We entered the total number of participants and generated 7 random numbers.
