Waydev is designed to help non-technical founders understand and manage the work of your developers. You can access the detailed reports on your tablet or smartphone and at a glance you can see how much progress is being made and where the major roadblocks remain. Because it is designed for non-technical founders (like myself), you can still keep your project on track, even if you don’t know the details behind each specific line of code.
This tool is a throwback to the 80's and 90's. Measuring lines of code and commits does not work. It usually leads to bloated code . Usually in the 90's it meant that instead of writing some neat quick routine, you would cut and paste some crap that you found that did the same thing, but had 3x the lines of code. So you looked better. As a developer I would write extra long code (usually slower and less effective) to get my code lines up. As far as commits, my best developer commits a couple of times a week as he wants to noodle on it and make it better. depending on your coding culture this could stifle good code writing. Frequent commits is a way of getting code out quickly, not necessarily getting good code out. Think of the paper at school where it had to be 10 pages. You wrote a great 8 page paper that hit the mark. You would then fill in crap to make it the 10 pages. Same here. Horrible metrics for measuring developers.
