How do you measure programmer performance?
You mean "average" performance. Well, there's no agreement on that one yet, but most of us agree that measuring LOC/day isn't a very valuable metric.

I'd recommend it though if I was on your team; copy/pasting a lot of comments would surely get me that bonus Smile | :)

See, there's the problem with metrics - if you start taking things like the amount of bugs solved, you'll get a lot of bugs solved, just not the ones that the customer really needs. People will game the system.

I've seen lot of experienced developers bite on hard stuff with little progress. I've also seen people who were merely "faking it". It may take a while for an outsider to distinguish both.

I also do not see how a bonus makes programmers write better stuff. Training does that. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
