Code quality is an abstract concept that fails to get traction at the business level. Software companies keep trading code quality for new features. The resulting technical debt is estimated to waste up to 42 percent of developer time. Without clear and quantifiable benefits, it’s hard to build a business case for code quality.
In this talk, Adam takes on the challenge by turning the code analysis microscope toward a business outcome. He’ll combine novel code quality metrics with an analysis of how engineering organizations work with code. He’ll then take those metrics a step further by connecting them to values like time-to-market, customer satisfaction, and risks to the company roadmap.
