20 Developer Lines of Code per Day – Good?

Up front:  I believe that Lines of Code is a USELESS metric.  However, people are often shocked by the raw number of lines of code that are written each day by a developer.  What’s your guess?  1,000?  200?  Try just under 20.  This is basically the number of lines of code in a released project divided by the number of programmer days, so, just because you can write 1,000 buggy lines of code per day, that doesn’t make you productive!  ๐Ÿ™‚  It’s the post bug-fix, post integration testing, post-everything lines that count.  (You can find some background here and here.)
