LinearB with Dan Lines

A developer’s core deliverables are individual commits and the pull requests they aggregate into. While the number of lines of code written alone may not be very informative, in total, the code and metadata about the code found in tracking systems present a rich dataset with great promise for analysis and productivity optimization insights.

LinearB is a systematic approach to engineering improvement. Their WorkerB Slack Bot connects with teams on an individual level to help with productivity and collaboration. In this episode, I speak with Dan Lines, Co-Founder, and COO.
