Rockstar dev debate reopens: Hero programmers do exist, do all the work, do chat a lot – and do need love and attention from project leaders • The Register

Didnt want to create account on the register to write a comment.

The study looks it will lack the depth needed to distinguish between a main contributor and the so called hero developer.

If a project has 30 contributors, over 2 years, but mainly contributed by 1 guy because he is doing it as his main side project putting in 10+ hours a week, then no dumb his stats are going to be high.

The metrics being used might provide some insight, but not for what they are looking into.

Time + Quality of Code = great developer
Time + Quantity = developer that putting the time in.

Quantity != Quality
