Developer productivity is a bit of a taboo but I have a strong belief that a lot can be done to improve the way we build software. This comes from my experience as a product manager, but also from talking to companies about the challenges of software development (I worked 5 years in the Dev Tools at Atlassian). I'm curious to know what the experience of the community is in that regards. I'm more interested in teamwork and collaboration problems rather than what makes you productive as an individual contributor.
I believe that it would be great to have an open discussion here but I am also really keen on having 1-1 conversations over Hangout/Skype, so please don't hesitate to let me know if you'd be willing to chat. You can DM me on Twitter at @stenpittet so that we can schedule something, and I have $50 Amazon vouchers to compensate you for your time.
For context, I'm bootstrapping a platform to help product teams scale their development using data - the core idea is that machines can be pretty good at detecting bottlenecks and helping find better ways to work (more on that on https://squadlytics.com). Your feedback would be amazing to help understand how to best solve that problem.
