Research indicates that developers working on large codebases spend as much as 75% of their time understanding existing code, instead of solving real problems. That is both a hit on productivity as well as a source of dissatisfaction on the job. Lack of institutional knowledge about the company’s codebase is a main contributor to this situation, in which 80% of developers report that they do not use existing company documentation in their work. In this presentation you will learn how to address this knowledge gap, and improve productivity and job satisfaction for developers.
