Good first day at ESC Boston2009. Gwyn and Alen presented a well attended talk on using source code analysis (SCA) to improve developer productivity. Key takeaways from the presentation:
- How SCA will impact your development velocity
- Quick history on SCA – talked about lint and the general evolution of the technology
- How the information generated by static code analysis can be used to solve a variety of development challenge
- Demo of where SCA fits from a code review, refactoring and bug detection standpoint
Interesting change from past presentations where most people now understand the basics of the technology… no need to spend too much time talking about its history and technology building blocks.
The presentation was recorded so we’ll load the video up at a later date for everyone’s viewing pleasure :)
