Google employs tens of thousands of engineers who work on single codebase that is contains billions of lines of code. Improving the productivity of our engineers, even in seemingly small ways, can drastically improve our ability to scale our workforce to the size of our codebase and enable large benefits across the entire company. Up until a few years ago, Google improved productivity in a haphazard manner, through anecdotal evidence and the whims of the engineers building the tools. While this works, it can only improve the tools so far. Google has since taken a more data-driven approach to identify our largest opportunities for improving the productivity of our engineers. In this talk, I’ll describe the principal components of our approach and how we’ve used this approach to make decisions about our developer tools and processes.
