Recently, I read an article that mentioned the various ways that management staff measure the productivity of their developers. It was worrying to see one of the ways involving the number of lines of code a developer writes in a working day. Sure, you could say that the more lines of code you write the less work there is left to do. In actual fact, developers who are pressured into working faster are more likely to produce bug ridden code. As the age old saying goes, its quality over quantity.
