If you take a data-driven approach to building software, you measure results all the time. But do you also measure how you build software? Metrics-driven insights can improve the dev process in groups of any size.

This talk will introduce Imhotep, an open source analytics platform, and show how it can surface dev process metrics. It will demonstrate the experience of using Imhotep to view contributions over time, analyze velocity and quality, and find opportunities for process improvement.

Turning metrics into targets can be counter-productive, but good measurements can be useful. You can frame metrics as a starting point for discussion, not stats to be gamed. This talk includes guidance that will help your teams embrace this approach.

You will leave with ideas of what to measure, how you can use Imhotep, and how to talk about the metrics. With these insights, you can drive positive change in your teams.
