My 20 years in developer productivity


It was 2004 when I started writing what then became Jenkins at Sun Microsystems. In hindsight, this was a part of the beginning of what later evolved into "developer productivity".

That evolution took 20 years, and is still in the making. I saw this up close, first at an OSS project (Jenkins), then at a vendor (CloudBees), and now at a different company (Launchable).

I'd like to share what I saw in this journey, how developer productivity evolved, and where it's going. I'd like to show you different teams I've come across, who are at different stages.
