Apr 20 2019 Hillel is speaking @ GOTO

After 24 hours awake, novice software devs lost half of their dev skills: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1805.02544.pdf Chronically getting less than 7 hours of sleep causes dramatic degradation on all mental tests: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2656292/ People can't tell when SD degrades their ability (ibid).

"... we found that a single night of sleep deprivation leads to a reduction of 50% in the quality of the [software] implementations. [...] We conclude that sleep deprivation has possibly disruptive effects on software development activities." https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.02544

My productivity is so bad if I don’t sleep 9 hours (fully asleep by 11, waking up at 8). I’m glad that people are fighting against the sleep depravition culture in tech. https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.02544

"we find a night of sleep deprivation increases coding errors by 50%" A labor econ article disguised as a CS article. Immediately brings to mind doctors and medical errors, new parents (esp. mothers), etc. https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.02544

Experienced Eng: I work 45-hour weeks. Naive Rookie: OMG lame. I work 120 hours weekly and I set up a cot next to my desk at work.

Sleep deprived (junior) developers produce 50% more bugs and produce 54% more syntax errors. #icse19 More details in this preprint https://arxiv.org/pdf/1805.02544.pdf https://t.co/ihEaxY8jE0

@ploeh @unclebobmartin Yet, studies show measurable effects when it comes to sleep. If static typing plays a significant role in code quality, then I'd expect to see similar kind of effect. https://arxiv.org/pdf/1805.02544.pdf
