in reply to On programmer schedules and productivity

As I've worked in almost every environment from home-business, startup VAR/ISP's, to Cubicle corporation I feel compelled to share my thoughts on this informative node.

  • As noted in Sherlock's comments and links, software development productivity is still an impossible gauge to measure. I wish management would do an exercise where each manager is give 1 day to draw a self portrait with the requirement that they log all of thier time as accurately as possible from finding tools to interuptions. Then all get together the next day and compare the logs and pictures. When they can find a way to quantitatively compare those results then they may have the tools to manage programming hours
  • On the other hand self-discipline is the key to personal productivity. A programmer that isn't pushing their own limits in this area generally is falling behind. I can't escape the irony of trying to figure out how this post itself is hypocrytical to my own self-discipline

Of course my great boss walked by the cubicle while I was entering this and I got the evil eye *sigh*...

coreolynOh well back to the java ...
