Re: [PLUG] Developer-to-staff ratio?

This is going to vary wildy from company to company and industry to industry.  (You'll clearly see a different ratio in a software company than in a fast food chain for instance.)  If your need is specific to a particular company, it would be useful to know some general information about the company itself.  The numbers you end up with in that case would be a lot more accurate.

Subject: [PLUG] Developer-to-staff ratio?

I need to come up with some numbers on "typical" industry 
"developer-to-other_staff" ratios.  I understand that there really is no 
such thing as "typical," but someone has to have some kind of metrics I 
can adapt.  I will Google and Wikipedia, and so-forth, but does anyone 
have any pointers for me?

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
