You can easily get some of this data for micro-benchmarks from the
shoot out, but it will be laden with caveats and biases:

While I'm sure your question is the right one ("Which technologies
improve the development metrics we care about?"), it would seem that
the biggest factor for things like time to market and code quality is
actually the group of humans involved:

(these are each very similar and by the same author)

I found the last one from norvig.com where he has these two essays
that go well together:

Good luck!
