In software, metrics are everywhere. Mountains of them and, if we listen carefully, we can gain insights into underlying patterns in the software.

Typically build systems, task managers, bug trackers and test reports are the major sources of metrics. However, one source of metrics that is frequently overlooked is the source code repository...

We recently added the Contributor Overview dashboard that focusses on a single team member and allows you to see the changes in your development process over time.

We have had a lot of feedback and questions on this, especially about when, or if, we would add the ability to compare team members. This feature does not exist and there is a very good reason why DevMetrics does not offer a comparison between team members.

With DevMetrics we have seen several common patterns of code activity that speak to a team’s flow, we'll dig a bit more into the most common patterns here.
