Frequently asked questions

Over the course of developing Waydev, we found some questions pop up more often than others. Here they are:

Generally, our customers are engineering leaders, CTO's, VP's, engineering managers who are focused on tracking the output of their engineers, increase their visibility and be data-driven.

Most of the software development reports are related to manual input from engineers, Waydev generates useful reports for managers, without the input of the engineers. We came with concrete metrics for daily stand-ups, 1-to-1 meetings and for checking the history of the engineers work.

Impact - is a metric which shows you how much "cognitive load" did the engineer carry when developing these changes. For calculating it, we give each commit a score based on how much new work, legacy refactor, help others and churn did the programmer and, besides, we look at how many files did he modified and the points where these changes had been made. Commits/Day - is a metric which shows you how much does your team push code on a daily basis. It is the ratio between total commits pushed by the entire team and the number of days with git activity on your project. A commit, or "revision", is an individual change to a file (or set of files). An Active Day is a day in which an engineer pushed code to the project, even if it is new work, legacy refactor, help others or churn code.

Your security is critical to us. We do not keep a copy of your repositories, we only copy the "GIT" folder and right away after our analyzation is done we delete it. We always connect via SSH key pairs. When you disconnect your repositories, all associated data is purged from the system. This can be accomplished securely by allowing public access via secure SSH access to internal repositories. This ensures that all data transmitted to Waydev is done over a secure protocol, and allows our customers to maintain strict authentication and access security using SSH keys. Waydev is built on the Amazon AWS service. We currently store all data in a secure database. To find out more information about Amazon’s security and infrastructure, please visit their security statement: https://aws.amazon.com/security/

Waydev is based on tiered pricing, the number of engineers currently contributing on your team.
