With the explosion of various developer tools and services in recent years, it's tempting to think that we've entered a golden age for software development productivity. However, contrary to popular belief, developer productivity is in fact declining, and this phenomenon risks bringing modern software development to a grinding halt in many organizations. In this talk, Nnamdi Iregbulem, Partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners, reveals a framework for thinking about developer productivity and charts a path toward reversing this dire trend.
