What happens when software developers are (un)happy

Daniel Graziotin, Fabian Fagerholm, Xiaofeng Wang, Pekka Abrahamsson
2018 Journal of Systems and Software  
In this paper, we study what happens when developers are happy and unhappy while developing software.  ...  Our comprehension of the consequences of (un)happiness among developers is still too shallow, being mainly expressed in terms of development productivity and software quality.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank all those who participated in this study.
