Continuous static analysis or how to keep your code healthy without waste



Frequently we have a deal with “legacy code”, full of bad smells, anti-patterns and potential defects. We gather and manage Technical Debt to get rid of such code where possible or at least improve it somehow. This is usually very wasteful process, because knowledge is lost as time passed, context of changes is unclear and code is not protected with reliable tests. In this talk we will go through more efficient approaches, supported with appropriate tools and practices, to make code care a continuous process achieving controlled balance between speed and code quality.
