Tonight’s talk:

7 paths to the dark side of software development metrics, presented by Larry Maccherone

Using Measurement as a lever to directly drive behavior is the #1 path to the dark side of software development metrics. Rather, you should think of metrics as feedback for improvement. What's the difference? Levers are employed to change someone else's behavior. Feedback is used to improve your own (or your own group's) performance. The distinction is subtle but critical.


"In this talk, I will help you form the discipline to be a force for light rather than dark. You will leave with a list of good practices to follow and examples from organizations who have avoided the dark side." -Larry
