Measuring Code Quality: Qualitative and Quantitative

DZone

Code Quality defines that the code is good, which means code is of high quality, and code is bad, which means code is of low quality. Code can be considered good quality if it is clear, simple, well tested, bug-free, refactored, documented, and performant.

Automated Code Review Tools for Developers in 2021

DZone

Code review is a technique that can improve the quality of a codebase by having multiple developers look for bugs and other problems before passing them on to others. Manual code reviews are costly and time-consuming, which is why many development teams use automated tools to do this work. Automated code review tools can help you automate the process, improve your code quality, and save valuable developer time.

Convenience always has a price, and with a ‘blinky’ it is that the code size for just ‘toggling a GPIO pin’ is exaggerated. It is great if vendors provide a starting point for my own projects. A working ‘blinky’ is always a great starter. For a device with a tiny amount of RAM and FLASH this can be concerning: will my application ever fit to that device if a ‘blinky’ takes that much? Don’t worry: a blinky (or any other project) can be easily trimmed down. Binky on NXP LPC845-BRK Board.

Who writes code? The obvious answer is that developers write code. Who makes sure the code works? Many companies have separate QA departments that are responsible for making sure code works.
