Automated Software Quality Control Tools
This session is aimed at helping developers get started with automating the collection of software quality metrics. We'll cover continuous integration, automated code metrics gathering, and analysis of these metrics. The ability to be able to detect problems early, and also to write higher quality code early, helps avoid bugs and headache down the line. We'll cover some best practices around using and putting in tools to help achieve higher quality.
This course centers around two freely available tools for maintaining high quality codebases. The first is Hudson, a continuous integration server. The second is Sonar, a code metrics server. In this session, we'll discuss best practices and then put them into use by setting up and running these tools. We'll also talk about tips for getting the most out of these tools. If you aren't using these tools in development, you absolutely need to come to this session - it will help make your life easier and impress your boss too!
