'"Software developers, like everyone else, have had to transition to a
work-from-home world," writes InfoWorld.
For the users of GitHub, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant changes in
work cadence and collaboration, along with an increased risk of
burnout, a GitHub study of usage patterns on the Microsoft-owned code
sharing site has found." In an "Octoverse spotlight" analysis
published May 6, 2020, GitHub compared the first three months of 2020
with the first three months of 2019... GitHub said its analysis shows
that developers have been resilient to the change wrought by COVID-19,
with activity holding consistent or increasing through the crisis.
But their analysis also found:
- Developers are working longer, by "up to an hour per day," seven days a week.
- Slightly more pushes, pull requests, reviewed pull requests, and
- More collaboration on open source projects, and less time to merge
pull requests into open source projects.'
