Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast
September 24, 2019
Today I stumbled over this article which makes a few excellent points about how fast (in terms of lines per person per hour) a developer usually is. I like that idea a lot, even though I would never try and use it to actually assess the speed of a developer. The underlying metric takes into account lines added and lines deleted as well, so measuring on lines added only would be meaningless.
