The modern workplace is more demanding than ever before. Software developers have to work on a wide variety of cognitively demanding tasks, face constant context switches, work in distributed teams, and have blurred work-life boundaries. What does it mean to be productive in this context, and how can we best support developers in staying focused? In this talk, I will present findings from a range of studies on developers' work patterns, their perceptions of productivity, and the interplay with team productivity. I will further talk about how we might be able to foster productive behavior based on these findings, including the use of computer interaction data and a traffic light-like LED lamp to reduce interruptions of professionals.
