What We Actually – Empirically – Know About Software Development, and Why We Believe It’s True (Greg Wilson)(r/programming)
A shorter (and better) version of the talk is online at software-carpentry.org/4_0/softeng/ebse/. If you want to keep up with the latest in empirical studies of programming, check out www.neverworkintheory.org/ (where we’re blogging once or twice a week about recent findings), or have a look at our book “Making Software” (www.amazon.com/Making-Software-Really-Works-Believ…) which collects the most important findings, and the evidence behind them.
