Refactoring Usage Survey

July 9, 2021

Together with our colleagues from the Product Management and Market Research & Analytics teams, we surveyed the paid subscribers of IntelliJ-based IDEs about their usage of refactorings. We asked the respondents how they use refactorings, how familiar they are with specific refactoring actions and refactoring features in the IDE, and how satisfied they are overall with those refactoring features. 1,183 complete responses were collected. We hope the survey results can be of use for both industrial and academic purposes. Click the link below to find the detailed description of the questionnaire and the raw data.
