DI Labs: What Do Elite Dev Teams Look Like? w/ Ori Keren, Co-Founder & CEO of LinearB
In an industry that has trouble looking beyond the next sprint, it’s good to know there are very smart people researching the conscious and unconscious pain points keeping devs from focusing on what they actually want to do: code.
In our new series Dev Interrupted Labs we’ll be looking at the most interesting research on how devs work, communicate and code.
The best way to start should be understanding what is actually a well-performing engineering org versus one that’s struggling. That’s why we’re so excited to have Ori Keren, co-founder of LinearB, as our first guest to discuss the results of the first-ever “Engineering Benchmarks Report.”
The product of comprehensively analyzing the work of almost 2,000 dev teams, “The 2022 Engineering Benchmarks Report” is the first EVER look at what performance metrics make engineering orgs elite, average or underwhelming.
We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did and that you’re able to find out where your dev team ranks as well as concrete ways to improve.
