A dedicated space
for developer experience

What is developer experience?

Community Manifesto

Developer experience - our daily experience when trying to get the job done. All of that should be efficient, sustainable and joyful.

Happy developers build better software!

The myriad of tools that are released each single day initially sounded like the promised developer-land. While choice is great, it doesn't necessarily make our lives easier. How does that feel?

[..] developers are forced to borrow time from writing code and redirect it towards managing the issues associated with highly complex, multi-factor developer toolchains held together in places by duct tape and baling wire.”

The Developer Experience Gap” by Stephen O'Grady, Redmonk

There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Individual developers, teams and projects start to think deeply about design, style and taste for tools to help us get into a flow focused on what we all love most: being creative and writing elegant code.

What all of them have in common is the desire to delight, the desire to reduce friction, and the desire to leverage automation to create a Swiss clockwork that works reliably below the surface.

This community is for them.

What is this community?

With developerexperience.us and our DevX activities, we want to create a shared space for those that work on creating a better developer experience for all of us.
