Speaker: Moderator Start with a brief introduction to explain why KW and UC are working together Discuss the productivity bottlenecks that can be solved using SCA and CI, and provide overviews of both Klocwork and Urbancode’s solutions. Followed by a look at the integration of our two solutions and how if you are a customer of KW or UC or considering either solution, how you can get the most of your investment
Speaker: Moderator Alen is Klocwork’s Director of Product Management, responsible for setting the company’s product direction. Alen has a technical and consulting background in the telecom equipment and software tools markets, and has helped hundreds of organizations successfully deploy source code analysis technology. Jeffrey is a 17-year veteran of the software industry and has performed and managed virtually every role in the software development lifecycle, including VP of Engineering and VP of Product Management. Jeffrey has over 8 years experience at the leading edge of continuous integration and is currently Technical Evangelist at Urbancode.
Speaker: Moderator passes to Alen
Speaker: Alen There are a number of key milestones in software development that need to operate smoothly in order to improve overall productivity: Peer code reviews Integration builds Testing Release/deployment Unfortunately, unstable or buggy code will significantly impact productivity at all of these important milestones: Peer code reviews will be bogged down with senior dev resources discussing bugs in the code rather than critical design or requirements issues; Integration builds need to be stable – The builds are taking a long time; the more bugs that are checked into the build, the higher likelihood of unstable builds, broken regressions, and a serious drag on productivity; Testing should be focused on being customer advocates and not identifying programming bugs that could have been caught by developers; Obviously released software needs to be as secure and high quality as possible, otherwise significant costs, customer retention issues, and brand damage can occur. The result for developers is they are inundated with more fire drills and bug reports, resulting in less time to write new code which is a major productivity drain.
Speaker: Alen Important to walk the audience through this quick SCA basics slide to ensure everyone is clear what SCA is all about. Source code analysis is the critical enabling technology required to meet the productivity goal of stabilizing code quality as early in the development process as possible. Rest of slide summarizes what issues can be found with SCA, where it is used in the development process (introduce importance of desktop analysis), and the automated nature of the technology vs. other testing tools.
