Kerri Miller ”You Can’t Miss What You Can’t Measure”

Adrift at sea, a GPS device will report your precise latitude and longitude, but if you don’t know what those numbers mean, you’re just as lost as before. Similarly, there are many tools that offer a wide variety of metrics about your code, but other than making you feel good, what are you supposed to do with this knowledge? Let’s answer that question by exploring what the numbers mean, how static code analysis can add value to your development process, and how it can help us chart the unexplored seas of legacy code.
