Summit producer highlights:

Christopher at Airbnb describes his experience with DORA metrics and identifies some DORA do’s and don’ts. For example, DORA is useful for developing a common language and starting conversations about developer productivity; however, it’s not ideal for gauging the success of specific projects. In that context, looking at build wait times, test pass rate, and work environment factors can be more meaningful.

Embracing DORA Metrics: The Airbnb Journey Towards Enhanced Developer Productivity

In this insightful talk, we will explore the process of adopting DORA (Deployment Frequency, Lead Time for Changes, Time to Restore Service, and Change Failure Rate) metrics at Airbnb to drive developer productivity. We will delve into earlier attempts at measuring productivity and discuss the reasons behind their limitations. Our presentation will highlight the significant impact and benefits of DORA metrics on our development process, and how we are utilizing them internally to drive continuous improvement.

We will also address the remaining challenges that we face, as well as our future plans to further enhance productivity and streamline our development pipeline. Join us as we share our experiences and valuable lessons learned from integrating DORA metrics at Airbnb, providing attendees with actionable insights to improve their own development processes and productivity.
