Live From INTERACT: Microsoft’s Developer Velocity Research

This week we have another episode from the 2021 engineering leadership conference INTERACT. In this live conversation, Conor Bronsdon, Community Lead at LinearB and the executive producer of the Dev Interrupted podcast, interviews Henrik Gütle, GM of Azure for Microsoft Canada.

Henrik joins the Dev Interrupted podcast to break down the results and key takeaways of Microsoft’s research into the impact of remote work on developer velocity — and what engineering leaders can learn from it.

The exhaustive study taken over the course of more than a year, both before the pandemic and while it was ongoing, surveyed hundreds of companies regarding a host of topics including: agile practices, cloud adoption, toolsets and talent acquisition. The results of this survey are far-reaching and serve to provide companies with an understanding of transformative business practices.

The bit on bug rate increases is interesting and I suspect teams everywhere (especially remote dev teams) will be interested in this research.

Overall though it appears news for remote dev teams is more positive than negative.

Interesting perspective, and it does seem that remote work is the way of the future
