Abstract Text Software development organizations strive to enhance the productivity of their developers. While research has looked into various ways for improving developer productivity, little is known about the activities they pursue at work, how these activities influence the fragmentation of work, and how these insights could be leveraged to foster productivity at work. In my PhD thesis, I address software developer productivity by taking a mixed-method approach to investigate developers’ perceptions of productivity in the field and to examine the individual differences of each developer’s work. My goal is to increase developers’ awareness about their own work habits and productivity, and to encourage productive behavior changes at work through the provision of two persuasive technologies, self-monitoring and goal-setting.
