Developer productivity and context switching

by Vit   Last Updated July 11, 2019 23:05 PM

Hello Software Engineering community! I got routed here from Stack Overflow, hope this is the right forum.

I am doing a study on lost developer productivity due to context switching. Sample scenario: Developer is working on a longer term project, but is interrupted to fix a bug reported by a high priority customer. In this context, we can define productivity lost as time it takes for him or her to return to the original task at peak productivity. Would this forum be the right place to post such a survey to source responses from SW developers?

Literally only looking for # of times you get interrupted per week and productivity lost per interruption.

If useful for anyone, I am happy to share results on the same thread once I get a good N.
