whats the age of Lazarus users ?
« on: October 28, 2013, 12:49:00 am »
We all know that most of young people love to use C#, Java, PHP, C++, VB... I also know that the number of Lazarus/Delphi users is not to be underestimated. I just wonder how young are we (you see, I dont say "how old are we"  ;) ) and how long are we in bussiness ?
I am 45 years old, I develop software for 20 years.

It isn't  better doing a poll?

It would be useful to have this information:

We would know is there is young people interested (the future of Lazarus).
And if we are all old, it will be bad for Lazarus. (Probably I will understand why we resist to the change).

I think it would be a good idea to get 'Location' as well.  Lazarus is a truly global community, but people seem to be as reluctant to give their Location as their age.

I agree, poll wil be fine. It can even have more questions: age, time spent in software development, time using Lazarus/Delphi, Location...

Probably no, because polls can be created only on Third Party subforum.

last option should read "65 and above" just a heads up for the next time I do not expect to be corrected.

My age is 38/39 (Not sure).
I have 15 years professional/commercial programming using Delphi and now Lazarus.
I'm From Khartoum-Sudan

I have started documenting my story using Object Pascal, first part was about Turbo Pascal:
