The sustainable future of developer productivity
We care a lot about improving developer productivity, and we want improvements to be long-lasting. Yet, teams often only track activity-related metrics that can be optimized in the short term but can create stress and burnout down the line. How can we, instead, achieve sustainable productivity?
Together, Microsoft and GitHub have created a holistic framework that helps developers, teams, and organizations make productivity sustainable and impactful. Developer Velocity Lab, GitHub’s and Microsoft’s joint research initiative, has released two major projects, the SPACE framework and the Good Day Project. In this talk, Dr. Eirini Kalliamvakou will share insights and practical applications from this research that any team can use, along with a sneak peek from the latest research on developer productivity and community (and more!) from the 2021 State of the Octoverse Report.
