The first person to come to mind is my last boss who switched jobs about a year after I began, then I think of other people I know who are managers, but not mine. I guess it would largely depend on the content of the survey.
I respect my prior managers enough not to ask them to do this, so NO. I will not provide 3 managers to take your survey.

A part of sending the link to your reference includes a disclaimer that tells the person that they are "...only speaking as an individual & not representing any company and that the person asking for the reference will not hold you legally responsible."
I think it's total bureaucratic BS and can't see anyone who isn't job hopping either by choice or bad luck having 3 prior managers recent enough to give good feedback. In my case excluding current coworkers it'd be a PM who left my current employer 4(?) years ago (assuming I can find her in linked in), the line manager/pm on a job I left over 5 years ago, and other people who were a manager of mine of some sort at that job 8-10 years ago.
Even if I were to be laid off from my current job - I'd still only have 3 non-technical managers available. If they wanted technical views of my skills it'd either need to be non-managers, or the 5 and 10 year ago people at old job. The 5 year ago one I'm at least certain would sing my praises, but my more marketable skills have grown considerably since then (went from mostly winforms to web/mobile dev at my new job).
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
For the last 25 years, Java has been the programming language of choice for developers. But today, the need to modernize Java applications has never been greater due to organizations coming under pressure to deliver faster time to market, reduce costs, and strengthen security. And this raises the question: how do you get Java to run well in the cloud?

I think they did, actually.
I just so happen to know that Microsoft is pushing Azure to non-Microsoft developers.
Azure works great for all sorts of technologies, not just Microsoft's, but many developers do not know this.
Next to .NET Framework, .NET Core and .NET, it can run Java, PHP, Node, Python and Ruby (I did not know about Ruby until just now) out of the box.
And next to SQL Server they also have Cosmos DB (which supports multiple paradigms and has a MongoDB interface), MariaDB and MySQL, all managed a.k.a. cloud-native.
And of course there's support for various container technologies such a Kubernetes and Linux has become the default OS in Azure for many services.
With Azure DevOps you get tooling to quickly build and deploy said technologies as well as private repositories for not only NuGet, but also npm, Maven, Gradle, pip and twine.
So there really shouldn't be a reason Java developers shouldn't use Azure, yet now it's not considered an obvious choice.
What Brad and Satya want is that when those developers think "cloud" they think "Azure".
