Research request for developers

If you’re a developer, could you answer three quick questions for me. Comments are fine, but you’re welcome to get in touch privately too.

  1. In any training you undertook to become a developer, whether it was formal education (school, coding academy) or informal learning (on-the-job training, becoming a developer as a hobby), what instruction and training did you receive on privacy concepts and data protection legislation?
  2. In the above, what instruction and training did you receive on any other legislation? For example, in Scotland, students working towards the computing science Higher are taught about the Computer Misuse Act, the Investigatory Powers Act, and the Communications Act.
  3. What are the holes in your knowledge on legislation – what do you need to know about? This could be accessibility, intellectual property, content moderation, etc.
