Introducing Developer Velocity Lab to improve developers’ work and well-being

Published date: May 25, 2021

Developer Velocity Lab (DVL) is a new research initiative that includes contributions across Microsoft, its research labs and GitHub. DVL’s mission is to discover, improve, and amplify developer work and well-being. Much of DVL's work will be open source. DVL will collaborate, sponsor, and encourage contributions from the best in the world.  

Developer Velocity Lab works through socio-technical investigations in productivity, community, and well-being. Developer productivity is about more than activity levels or the efficiency of software engineering systems, and it cannot be measured by a single metric. DVL’s first publication, The SPACE of Developer Productivity: There’s more to it than you think, addresses this.
