Programmers really hate open floor plans — Quartz
Based on an analysis of 10,000 programming sessions recorded from 86 programmers using Eclipse and Visual Studio, and a survey of 414 programmers, we found:

* A programmer takes 10-15 minutes to start editing code after resuming work from an interruption.
* When interrupted during an edit of a method, a programmer resumed work in less than a minute only 10 percent of the time.
* A programmer is likely to get just one uninterrupted two-hour session in a day.
