title: Statistical analysis on usethis.com tool usage patterns description: “” category: tags: []

The Setup is a “nerdy interview website asking people from all walks of life what they use to get the job done”. I am pretty interested in the tools mentioned in the interviews and their usage patterns. Therefore I created a webapp for users to explore the tools, users, user categories and year trend patterns. With the webapp, you can find out the answer to the questions such as:

What are the most popular hardware and softwire? For each tool, i.e. TextMate, who are using it? what type of users are using it? What else tools are used by the users using this tool? How the tool grows during 2009 - 2012?

For each year during 2009-2012, i.e. 2009, Who are the users interviewed in this year? what tools these users use? what are the categories of these users?

What are the most popular categories do all the users fall in? For each category, i.e. designer, who are in this category? what tools do users in this category use? what is the trend during 2009-2012?
