    Leap of Faith

    After six years of post-secondary education, my first day of the real world had finally come.   As I approached the doors to Klocwork, I realized it was time to put all my years of education to the test. Straight out of high school, I had little idea of what career path I should take. Four years of university passed and I graduated with a B.A. in English, but still, I didn’t feel prepared. Another two years of college in media-related studies and, ready or not, it was time to make the leap into the working

    Top 10 porting issues

    If you’ve ever gone through the process of porting an application, you know the pain.  Porting can be difficult if you’re not vigilant from the outset.  There are tons of written guidelines and best practices for specific platforms or architectures, such as those going to 64 bit for Windows apps or Intel architecture and Mac OS. In the past, we have talked about Endian issues, which are very specific to porting from different architectures (big-endian vs little-endian).  This time I want to take you through some general porting issues to show you how you can

    Patterns of Bugs

    Nice blog post from Walter Bright over at Dr. Dobbs on the Patterns of Bugs. He ties together bug patterns, recommended process changes, and the resulting productivity payoff from making these improvements. He recommends a bunch of process changes, including static analysis, code reviews, and coding standards, then goes on to review examples of different bug patterns. A few can be detected with static analysis (coding mistakes as written) but many are errors with the code as intended (something static analysis doesn’t check… that’s what testing is for). His main recommendation seems to be that

  • Medical Devices Roadshow – Minneapolis style

    on Jan 14, 11 • by Todd Landry • with 2 Comments


    Yesterday we did our second Medical Devices software seminar, this time in snowy and cold Minneapolis. Say what you will about the weather, but this city is built for winter…it has various overhead ‘tunnels’ called ‘skyways‘ connecting what seemed to be the entire downtown core, so you rarely ever need to go outside. Anyways, our seminar drew the interest of over 75% of registrants, mostly software engineers and QA, so really another great turnout. The format was the same as our Boston event, with the same players from SterlingTech, Klocwork (duh) and Vector Software. There

  • In standards we unite, in agile we diverge

    on Jan 11, 11 • by Patti Murphy • with 2 Comments


    What comes first—the process or the tool? Yes. Any tool worth its salt should integrate into existing processes and tools. What’s interesting and informative is seeing the similarities and differences in how the same tool is applied in different organizations, across continents and oceans. The emphasis on quality unites everyone, but the level to which agile is adopted is what makes static analysis markets different. No one knows this more than Mark Grice, Klocwork Director and Manager of the International Reseller/Partner Network, and Steve Howard, head of Partner Support in Europe. Trying to talk to

  • Is RSS dead?

    on Jan 6, 11 • by Alen Zukich • with 2 Comments

    RSS feed

    Well no, far from it, but there has been an interesting post on this and other discussions from the browser makers themselves.  Namely Firefox has removed the RSS feed from the toolbar in 4.0.  This has sparked much conversation to bring that back. The main reason for this is that it simply is not used, therefore having it so prominent is unnecessary.  Furthermore all sites already provide this capability on their pages, so why include one on the browser too?  There are some interesting counters to this and I suggest you have a read. This
