Nnamdi Iregbulem, Partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners is our guest on the podcast this week. Nnamdi walks through this new metric: What is it? How do you calculate it? When should a company start tracking weighted ACV?
Times have changed. Organizations are increasingly fed up with traditional data infrastructure, which is slow to yield answers to key business intelligence questions and often out of date and out of sync with current business realities, typically by a day or more.
Weighted Annual Contract Value (WACV) calculates the average contract dollar value with a weighted average proportional to the value of the contract. Essentially, higher value contracts are assigned more importance when calculating the total average contract value of a business. This approach is helpful to companies that have widely varying customer concentration by accurately calculating an ACV that is not skewed by contracts with low dollar value.
The Developer Productivity Manifesto (GitLab Commit 2021)
With the explosion of various developer tools and services in recent years, it's tempting to think that we've entered a golden age for software development productivity. However, contrary to popular belief, developer productivity is in fact declining, and this phenomenon risks bringing modern software development to a grinding halt in many organizations. In this talk, Nnamdi Iregbulem reveals a framework for thinking about developer productivity and charts a path toward reversing this dire trend.

Recent events have raised awareness of pervasive issues facing blacks in America. Further, blacks have historically been underrepresented in software development, accounting for approximately 2% of software developers despite making up approximately 13% of the American population. Many companies claim to be committed to diversifying their software engineering workforce, and these promises have only accelerated in recent months. However, aside from data revealing their prevalence among software developers, little publicly available data or analysis exists on the professional experience of black software developers. In this presentation, I analyze pay gaps, paths to promotion, job and career satisfaction, and other aspects of black software development to better understand the career journeys of black software engineers.
