Webinar Agenda

With today's technologies and tools, building software is no longer the complex craft of the past. Anyone with access to a computer can now write code in their favorite programming language or IDE. Furthermore, combining multiple different technologies in the codebase is the norm when designing software. However, as the complexity of the code increases over time, so does the importance of keeping an eye on the overall quality of the code. But what exactly do we mean when talking about code quality? Which quality attributes should we keep an eye on? How can we automate the process of static code analysis so that we can quickly understand where we stand in terms of quality and technical debt?

In this presentation, we'll discuss about the science and technology related to static code analysis, so that you may use sound metrics to decide how to tackle technical debt. Whether you're building software alone or collaboratively, this presentation will provide strategies to keep your code quality where it should be so that you may quickly implement features in your application.
