After learning about GitPrime from a colleague, De Point started a free trial. He began by adding the repository where the delivery problems kept occurring. As he reviewed the team’s contributions back through time, from the reports he was immediately able to identify the problem.
"And there it was," he recalls. "Plain as day I could see our delivery bottleneck in the reports. It was particularly apparent in the Commit Workflow and Pull Request Detail."
The team was working locally, saving up their code without submitting it for a review until the latter part of each sprint. Once submitted, everyone had to wait to for feedback on 3 weeks worth of work. "And honestly, they often needed feedback way earlier on, but by that time the ship had already sailed," he admits.
GitPrime exposed that problem, and helped me make the case that everyone should submit code in smaller increments, on a more frequent basis, so that engineers can get feedback sooner.
