«I would argue that what good software developers do is remove problems. The opposite, in fact, of production. The creation of technological artifacts such as code, documentation, data, etc...are all necessary evils to achieve the goal of removing problems» - http://www.benrady.com/2012/11/theres-no-such-thing-as-softwa...
«Why do developers (usually) seem to be less effective when you isolate them from stakeholders and/or users. Wouldn't keeping them from getting distracted make them more productive? The answer is yes, it does often make them more productive...but it also makes them less effective. » ‎· 9000
«Problem solving requires only information and insight. Either you have it or you don't. It's not that the bad developers are typing slowly. It's not that they would do better if they just "tried harder". They just don't have the insight or the information to solve the problem as effectively. Perhaps the reason you can't measure the difference in productivity between the good and bad developer is because there's nothing to measure.» ‎· 9000
