Next week: How Spotify does DPE with Backstage | DevProdEng Lowdown

In the July 12 episode of DevProdEng Lowdown, we connect with Lee Mills at Spotify about Backstage, a CNCF project and open platform for building internal developer portals. 


Lee is a Senior Engineering Manager working on Backstage. He'll discuss what it is, how it helps developer productivity, and why Spotify created it. Best of all, he’ll give us a demo of Backstage in action.

GitHub’s AI survey reveals slow builds & tests still plague developers

While GitHub's recent survey focused primarily on how AI impacts the developer experience, the results showed that developers spend the same amount of time waiting on builds and tests as they spend writing code—27% of their work day in each case. 


Despite a decade of DevOps investments across the industry, the pain of slow builds and tests continues to be a major impediment to developer productivity initiatives. Click below to learn how Gradle can help reverse this trend with DPE technologies.

DPE Evangelist: AI can improve the developer workflow, reduce busy work, and prevent burnout

Trisha Gee, DPE Evangelist at Gradle, has some good news: AI is not poised to make software developers obsolete anytime soon, as this article in The New Stack relates. In fact, AI can make some welcome contributions to the developer workflow and developer productivity. 

Trisha also describes in this Techstrong.tv interview that one of the greatest benefits we can expect from AI entering the software development landscape is the reduction of “busy work”. Ideally, this would create space for focusing on creativity and collaboration—things we know drive meaningful contributions and can help prevent developer burnout.




Making SPACE for DPE

The SPACE framework has become well-known as a comprehensive model for defining developer productivity metrics. How does DPE play a role here? 


In this article, you’ll learn how SPACE metrics align with the practice of DPE and see that SPACE and DPE need each other—while SPACE defines the “what” for improving developer productivity, DPE defines the “how” with technologies and practices. Read further to see how the SPACE/DPE Synergy Matrix shows the detailed mapping between SPACE metrics and DPE benefit “pillars”.
