Age old questions answered: Star Wars beats Star Trek, engineers like beer

You have to hand it to Zend. That company has its priorities straight. It asks its constituency of PHP developers really important questions like: What’s your favorite sci-fi show/movie? And the results are in.

Here’s the data:


Previous Developer Pulse results showed beer to be the preferred adult beverage for developers — 29 percent of whom said they “live for it” last year. And in 2011, we learned that Metallica reigned supreme among musical choices. On the flip side, respondents that year showed a strong resistance to Bieber fever as well as a pronounced ambivalence about Lady Gaga.
