"As a novel coronavirus swept the world in early 2020, thousands of software devel-opers began working from home. Many did so on short notice, under difficult and stressfulconditions.
This study investigates the effects of the pandemic on developers’ wellbeing andproductivity.
A questionnaire survey was created mainly from existing, validated scales andtranslated into 12 languages. The data was analyzed using non-parametric inferentialstatistics and structural equation modeling.
The questionnaire received 2225 usable responses from 53 countries. Factor analy-sis supported the validity of the scales and the structural model achieved a good fit (CFI =0.961, RMSEA =0.051, SRMR =0.067). Confirmatory results include: the pandemichas had a negative effect on developers’ wellbeing and productivity; productivity andwellbeing are closely related; disaster preparedness, fear related to the pandemic andhome office ergonomics all affect wellbeing or productivity. Exploratory analysis suggeststhat: women, parents and people with disabilities may be disproportionately affected; different people need different kinds of support."
