Code analysis for a better future

  1. 1. Code analysis for a better future
  2. 2. Gil Forcada Head developer at der Freitag
  3. 3. Few questions: pep8? pep257? internal guidelines? enforcing them? p.r.codeanalysis? p.api style guide? hacking?
  4. 4. Why follow standards?
  5. 5. "Mars Climate Orbiter 2" by NASA/JPL/Corby Waste - Licensed under Public domain via Wikimedia Commons
  6. 6. It is not clear which coding style is used for various shell scripts present in this repository. Having some clear guidelines, like how many characters are used for indentation, if then appears in the same line as if, and such will be helpful to create consistent code easier to read by humans. - developer trying to start contributing on a project (emphasis mine)
  8. 8. FWT meeting notes from 2013-03-05 ... ... ... ... ... We approved the style guide used by plone.api as the official code style guide for Plone core.
  9. 9. Examples / Ideas / Thoughts
  10. 10. Sanetizing Plone Views @April 12 2013
  11. 11. Consistency MaTterS, size not
  13. 13. 100 devs, 1 file
  14. 14. Written once, read forever
  15. 15. EXAMPLE OF A DIFF WITH: Trailing whitespaces, extra empty lines, different cases, mixing string quotings, different indentation, changing parts that are not related to the code, typos here and there...
  16. 16. Commit messages / history log
  17. 17.
  18. 18. Don't lie
  19. 19. Add grok.queryAnnotation() from grokcore.annotation +from grokcore.annotation import queryAnnotation Actually... Remove code on buildout.cfg New version of 97d1b9439802f29
  20. 20. But please...
  21. 21. Cognitive load Is the load related to the executive control of working memory (WM). Theories contend that during complex learning activities the amount of information and interactions that must be processed simultaneously can either underload or overload the finite amount of working memory one possesses. All elements must be processed before meaningful learning can continue. Wikipedia (quoting book "Cognitive Load Theory: Instructional Implications of the Interaction between Information Structures and Cognitive Architecture".)
  22. 22. plone.recipe.codeanalysis to the rescue
  23. 23. .py .zcml .xml .pt .js .css .rst package structure testing approach ...
  24. 24. FUTURE
  25. 25. Openspace anyone?
  26. 26. THANKS!
