ZeroTurnaround launches investigation into developer productivity

Chris Mayer

The development tools company are looking for YOUR views on developer habits and productivity in a new survey.

For the third year in a row, JAX Innovations Award Winner
ZeroTurnaround has launched an investigative journey to drill down
into development productivity with their newest effort,

Intel on Developer Productivity

 The company, who are the masterminds behind
the instant code rollout plugin JRebel that eliminates, are looking
to compile data surrounding the lives of developers, in hope of
understanding habits and the best working environment for
productive development.

“We’re launching this investigation with an ambitious goal in
mind,” commented Jevgeni Kabanov, ZeroTurnaround CTO and Founder.
“We want to better understand how coders spend their time, plus
which tools, technologies and employment conditions increase or
decrease productivity, stress and work satisfaction.”

The company’s previous Java EE Productivity Report 2011
and Java Productivity Report: India vs. Rest of
(which over 30,000 viewers read) were
primarily tuned towards determining efficiencies that can be
technically influenced, such as the % of each coding hour forfeited
application redeploys, the process
each Java developer needs to go through in order to see code
changes (i.e. adding a new feature or fixing a bug).

By launching this new investigation into the daily lives of
both Java and non-JVM developers, ZeroTurnaround hopes to produce a
valuable report that benefits the development community at large,
providing answers to questions like:

  • What do developers spend their days doing?
  • How efficient are those days?
  • What keeps them up at night?
  • How do processes, tools and technologies help or hinder

Armed with a wide selection of primary data from actual
coders, everyone from programmers and team leads to executives
& CxOs can better understand what makes developers tick, and
which processes, tools and technologies are considered
helpful/harmful by their users.

ZeroTurnaround respectfully invites coders of all kinds to
stop by and spend 5 minutes sharing their experiences for the good
of coderkind:

(Teaser: The average Java dev spends much less time writing code
each week than previously thought…)

ZeroTurnaround hopes that the findings from the investigation
will indicate where the Java ecosystem is heading in the next 12
