It's pretty easy to track when we fix security vulnerabilities in existing code. But to make sure the whole team is staying on their toes about writing secure code, I'd like to also track how well we ...
There is a large body of literature regarding using network metrics (e.g. degree) for predicting defects. Something I'm running into is that a lot of my code is event-driven, so I have a large number ...
I'm looking for references about hypothesis testing in software management. For example, we might wonder whether "crunch time" leads to an increase in defect rate - this is a surprisingly difficult ...
From the c2wiki page on coupling & cohesion: Cohesion (interdependency within module) strength/level names : (from worse to better, high cohesion is good) Coincidental Cohesion : ...
While the code metrics tool gives a pretty good analysis of the code being analyzed, I was wondering if there was any such benchmark on acceptable standards for the following as well: Maximum number ...
For several years now I am a big fan of using static code analysis tools for checking the source code quality. We are mostly doing C# development so NDepend was the best way to go for me. Most of the ...
What are useful metrics to capture for source code? How can metrics, like for example (Executable?) Lines of Code or Cyclomatic Complexity help with quality assurance or how are they beneficial in ...
