Don't Analyze and Ignore, Automate and Act! (Scott Dillman)
Limited Capacity seats available

Static-code analysis tools provide a wealth of information about your code, and highlight numerous opportunities for improvement. If you are like most teams, however, you are rarely given a block of dedicated time to devote to this technical debt, and therefore critical opportunities get lost in the information overload of the analysis results. The most opportune time to identify and act on coding issues is as they are being introduced. In this session, you will learn how to leverage your automated build to monitor your analysis results, and to immediately act on impacted areas that are most important to you. For example, you will learn how to leverage your build to detect duplication introduced into the code base, a change to an area of known complexity, or matches on keywords frequently linked to defects. You will then learn how to have the build automatically initiate a code review in response to these findings. This session will also highlight additional opportunities to leverage code analysis in your build such as automating the generation of release notes, and automating the maintenance of a web-service catalog. The discussion will cover both custom tools and techniques, as well as identifying opportunities to leverage and integrate off-the-shelf products.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn how to have your automated build monitor your static-code analysis results
  • Learn how to monitor for changes to sensitive areas of your code base
  • Learn how to monitor for keywords introduced that may be indicative of potential problems
  • Learn how to automatically trigger code reviews based on analysis results
  • Learn how to leverage code analysis and automation to create automated release notes
  • Learn how to leverage your build to create and maintain a web-service catalog
