Top Q/A from the last week in our private Slack group

Arik [11:00 PM]
“SaaS Product Mgmt question. Has anyone ever looked at metrics like revenue vs lines of code? Or similar?”

Looking at how we’d track and report on that and curious if I’m the only one…

Matt [7:49 AM]

“lines of code is mostly a meaningless statistic

hard to really find correlation with that too, new revenue is easier to analyze from acquisition efforts and recurring revenue can be paired with churn”
