  • Manual Code Review Anti-Patterns

    Today, I'd like to offer a somewhat lighthearted treatment to a serious topic.  I generally find that this tends to offer catharsis to the frustrated.  And the topic of code review tends to lead to lots of frustration. When talking about code review, I always make sure to offer a specific distinction.  We can divide code ...

  • Automation and the Art of Software Maintenance

    I have long since cast my lot with the software industry.  But, if I were going to make a commercial to convince others to follow suit, I can imagine what it would look like.  I'd probably feature cool-looking, clear whiteboards, engaged people, and frenetic design of the future.  And a robot or two.  Come help us ...

  • If You Automate Your Tests, Automate Your Code Review

    For years, I can remember fighting the good fight for unit testing.  When I started that fight, I understood a simple premise.  We, as programmers, automate things.  So, why not automate testing? Of all things, a grad school course in software engineering introduced me to the concept back in 2005.  It hooked me ...

  • Are You Ready for Zero Day Software Deployment?

    As a teenager, I remember having a passing interest in hacking.  Perhaps this came from watching the movie Sneakers.  Whatever the origin, the fancy passed quickly because I prefer building stuff to breaking other people's stuff.  Therefore, what I know about hacking pretty much stops at understanding terminology and high ...

  • So You've Inherited a Legacy Codebase

    During my younger days, I worked for a company that made a habit of a strategic acquisition.  They didn't participate in Time Warner style mergers, but periodically they would purchase a smaller competitor or a related product.  And on more than one occasion, I inherited the lead role for the assimilating software from one of ...

  • When is It Okay to Turn off Static Analysis Guidance

    The balance among types of feedback drives some weird interpersonal dynamics and balances.  For instance, consider the rather trite (if effective) management technique of the ''compliment sandwich.''  Managers with a negative piece of feedback precede and follow that feedback with compliments.  In that fashion, the compliments ...

  • Don't Just Flag The Issue -- Fix It!

    More years ago than I'd care to admit, I took a software engineering course as part of my graduate CS program.  At the time, I worked a full-time job during the day and did remote classes in the evening.  As a result, I disproportionately valued classes with applicability to my job.  And this class offered plenty ...

  • The Case for a Team Standard

    In professional contexts, I think that the word ''standard'' has two distinct flavors.  So when we talk about a ''team standard'' or a ''coding standard,'' the waters muddy a bit.  In this post, I'm going to make the case for a team standard.  But before I do, I think it important to discuss these flavors that I mention.  ...

  • The Developer Feedback Loop

    If you write software, the term ''feedback loop'' might have made its way into your vocabulary.  It charts a slightly indirect route from its conception and into the developer lexicon, though, so let's start with the term's origin.  A feedback loop in general systems uses its output as one of its inputs. Kind of vague, ...

  • Why Automate Code Reviews?

    In the world of programming, 15 years or so of professional experience makes me a grizzled veteran.  That certainly does not hold for the work force in general, but youth dominates our industry via the absolute explosion of demand for new programmers.  Given the tendency of developers to move around between projects and companies, ...
