Applied Object-Oriented Metrics
Object-oriented code metrics are a little like Artificial Intelligence: those who did it twenty years ago roll their eyes at the thought and prophesy the same ultimate failure at applicability now. Those who grew up with Java are approaching the topic with new eyes and are finding useful ways of incorporating metrics into their projects. Come hear about tools and ways to measure properties of software, how they might be beneficial and where you are likely to go astray with this approach.
Attendees will learn about
Approaches to measuring software The attempt to predict failure via software metrics (and the failure to do so) Analyzing OO designs based on the "Martin Metrics" Tools that allow developers to use metrics for themselves
Category: Architecture/Languages, Design, Core Java, .NET
Prerequisites: Basic Java or C# skills
