A Bit about DevFactory

The DevFactory culture is rooted in a deep appreciation for software development combined with a passion to use objective data to make development better. We are inspired by the industrial manufacturing revolution that happened over 100 years ago. Jobs were loosely defined, not measured, not specialized, not automated, and the result was terrible quality and productivity. Today manufacturing is dominated by automation, scientific measurement, and well defined processes. The result is very high quality and 100x greater productivity. We see the same opportunity in large scale software development. We build software that makes software development 10X better and we are applying the latest tools, technologies, and trends to make this happen.
