In the past months, the former Ambient Intelligence students were contacted filling a thorough questionnaire trying to understand the major "pain points" they had during the development of their AmI system.38 students replied and devoted 30 minutes to analyzing the sources of difficulties, and of the time spent, in different parts of a AmI system prototype. The results of the survey will be used for developing new methodologies and tools able to ease the task for future novice IoT programmers.Some preliminary survey results will be presented at the forthcoming COMPSAC'2017 conference.

To thank the survey participants for their contribution, we randomly selected one lucky winner for a Solos Play:1 device (sponsored by Nital). Congratulations to the prize winner for his luck!
