Hey <!channel> 👋 Hope ya'll are doing well and getting excited for Hacktoberfest! We have another fun announcement today, we’ve put together a survey: Airbyte State of Data Engineering that I'd love for you to fill out. Open source and community are our heart and soul, so it’s important for us to hear how you’re doing and how you’re feeling about the industry and Airbyte. As a a huge thank you and token of our appreciation, we’ll send you some fun octavia swag. Survey will be open for about 3 weeks, share with your friends. :) Survey here octavia loves

@Karen (Airbyte) One small recommendation . . . on the "For data ingestion/integration"/"data transformation"/"data orchestration"/"data warehousing"/BI"/"Data Quality & Observability"/"Reverse ETL"/"Data Catalog" questions (most of page 2), you may get better data if you add a "used previously" option. (Many of us have used a ton of these and since moved away from them—which is very different than just having heard of them) Also, one minor typo on the follow-up question about community safety/inclusiveness . . . it currently reads "If you disagree, we please share details as you feel comfortable." (I'm guessing that "we" is just an artifact) Thanks for putting this out there!
