The chart below is a summary of responses to the survey I posted here and on the ATypI list asking about our education and training. It's a very small sample, just 27 responses, and there's a subjective component in the interpretation of the data. For example, if a respondent indicated they were mostly self-taught in an area I gave the response a yellow box, but if a respondent said they studied a subject but learned a lot more on the job, I did not. My purpose was to provide anecdotal data to those interested in discussing this at the TypeCon Education Forum in August. A call for speakers will go out in the coming week. If anyone wishes to be added to the survey data between now and TypeCon, please contact me offline.
