Programmer Productivity, Again

Steve McConnell has just recently blogged on the perennial subject of programmer productivity. In his article he supports the “10x” hypothesis, a fact which should surprise no one (His blog is called “10x Software Development” ).

I’ve also blogged about this previously, and although I am personally uncomfortable with “10x”, McConnell has clearly done his homework. The article includes a detailed list of references.

I guess it’s time to get reading.

PS: I find Kaitlin Duck Sherwood’s musings on this subject to be quite compelling.

Maybe on April 1st I’ll rename this blog “1/10th Software Development”
