What should leaders measure and focus on to improve developer productivity?
Our recent paper describes how conventional approaches fall short, and how to instead focus on and measure developer experience rather than specious measures of output.
Today, I’m excited to share a first look at our DX25 core model, which is our own instantiation of the concepts outlined in our paper.
Our model includes three core components:
This model is derived from ongoing research by our cross-disciplinary team, which includes Dr. Margaret-Anne Storey, Dr. Nicole Forsgren, Dr. Michaela Greiler, and Dr. Liz Pavese.
The DX25 model has been successfully adopted and used by hundreds of companies including Dropbox, Twilio, and Brex.
We hope that sharing our open model helps engineering leaders and business leaders align on approach as well as recognize the importance of making continued investments in improving developer productivity.
