Developer Experience Manifesto


Happy developers are necessary for creating exceptional software. By building software and helping others to do the same, we have come to value:

  • Automation of repetitive tasks over manual grind
  • Convention in tooling over tooling configuration
  • Sustainable development pace over constant crunch time
  • Adopting best practices over status quo

That is, while there is value in all the items, there is more value in the items written in bold.
