Developer eXperience. How I missed it before?
stereobooster Nov 4
Recently I learned the term "developer experience (DX)" and it is like lightning strike. I thought about this thing a lot but didn't know how it is called. I referred to it as usability, UX for developers or ergonomics, for example, in my recent post Developer is the next blue collar job.
I wonder how I haven't heard about it before? Under which rock have I been leaving? So I did quick internet research: some people are talking about designing API or about tools, like editors, or about UX vs DX. The most useful thing I got from my search, so far, is the slogan: developer experience - developers are people too.
It seems there are a lot of things yet to be discovered and formalized. It is a green field. I already have some ideas on the subject, and preparing some articles, but I'm learning myself and open for suggestions, ideas, advices. What would you consider part of DX? What should I read/watch to know more about DX?
