Software developer productivity: What we know and how to make it better

March 9, 2016 at 12:00 PM ET

Description: Everyone seems to want more software developed and produced faster. Yet simply ramping up the number of individuals able to produce software is not sufficient; it is also important to improve the productivity of the software developers. But, what is software development productivity anyway? When do software developers consider themselves productive? What friction exists in software development that lowers productivity? In this talk, Gail Murphy will discuss recent studies about software development productivity from the eyes of developers and will suggest directions to improve software development productivity based on the daily activities of software developers. This talk includes joint work with T. Fritz (U. Zürich), A. Meyer (U. Zürich) and T. Zimmermann (Microsoft Research). Register Now >

Tasktop Sync for iRise: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

Partner webinar: iRise

The later a defect or change is found, the greater the negative impact on software delivery. Agile processes and DevOps methodologies promote changes to streamline software production, but speeding up the process and building the wrong thing doesn't deliver business value and isn't the answer. This webinar demonstrates preventative measures that can be taken to ensure developers and testers are building the right features, maximizing the business value delivered, and reducing waste.

A Pragmatic Approach to Scaling Agile in the Enterprise

Agile development has become the norm for building software, with the majority of software delivery teams using some form of Agile development. But the same cannot be said for the enterprises they work for. The reality is that while development teams are embracing Agile methodologies, the software delivery organizations they are part of tend to be the very opposite of Agile.

Driving Requirements into the Lifecycle with Integration

It all starts with requirements. Not only do they define the problem you are trying to solve, but also its value. If used correctly, requirements enable you to make decisions about priority, business value, and even architectural risk. But for many organizations requirements live on an island – an island that sends out communications, but increasingly becomes less and less relevant as the project progresses. How many of your requirement documents are still up to date at the end of the project? When there is a problem, where do you look first – the code, the architecture, the tests, the deployment or the requirements documents?
