Poll Responses

Posted on January 22, 2015 by Kyle Marek-Spartz

HaskellMN is a small, but growing community. Here’s some information about who we are and what we are interested in.

Meetup Chart

Growth in membership typically outpaces growth in attendance by a few months. The drop at the end is likely due to a lack of a December meetup. The labels may seem to be offset; January’s activity levels are not yet on the graph, and will likely be similar to November’s.

Google Forms Poll

We had a beginning-of-the-year membership poll to allow for decisions to be made based on our members’ interests. We had 14 responses out of 57 registered Meetup members, for a nearly 25% participation rate; these results are likely representative (or at least representative of members who take polls).
