    Hello Everyone, I’m Eric Cloninger and I’ll be your guide to all things Android at Klocwork. This is a section of the Klocwork site that has been quiet in the past, but we’re about to take off. Please make sure that your seats are fully upright and your tray tables are in the locked position because we’re going places. It’s no coincidence I used an airplane metaphor. I love to travel.

  • Developer productivity thrown out the door

    on Jun 2, 09 • by Alen Zukich • with 1 Comment

    I deal with many organizations that deploy the Klocwork software to the desktop so that developers can use our tools to help them find and fix bugs in their code.  The message is simple, fix your bugs before you check in your code.  Many of the organizations I deal with have a mismatch of environments and tools.  In the world of writing code it is not uncommon to find developers using Emacs, Vim, Visual Studio, Eclipse or any number of IDEs/text editors.  Nothing wrong with this, although it doesn’t offer a clean, repeatable environment but
