in thread On programmer schedules and productivity

All this reminds me of the whole discussion on mappers versus packers (partucularly in Chapter 1). It's difficult for non-software-development people to understand the process of development -- to them, it sometimes looks like we're just goofing off and if they were just able to get us to apply ourselves we'd be that much more productive.

One of the problems is that code isn't an easy product to create metrics for. Sure, there's quantity, and sure, there's output (does it do what it's supposed to?), but I think non-development people always have the suspicion that it could always do more and that it's the lazy developer's fault it doesn't.
