This has been a long week for me and Arik and it felt like we had quite a lot of work done after Ilay and Benny redesigned the whole interface (yet again..) last week.
Insprired by a discussion that I had with Arik over lunch today about metrics productivity, I thought Iâ€™d have a crack at some simple metrics just to see how much we have done. We should probably automate this at some point and make it a part of our nightly build (that is actually broken right now).
Our project includes about 3846 lines of code (not including unit tests and supporting scripts).
This week weâ€™ve changed a total of 5980 lines of code, but weâ€™ve changed some lines several times and so the final version differs from last weekâ€™s version by 927 lines.
This means we changed each line about 6.5 times and modified about a quarter of the application.
Without analyzing these data too much, it is evident that weâ€™ve done quite a lot of work this week and that quite a lot of it has been refactoring. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen.
