We started Code Climate with a simple hypothesis: static analysis can help developers ship better code, faster. Five years later, we analyze over one trillion lines of code each day spanning a wide variety of programming languages, and along the way we’ve learned a lot about code quality itself: what it means, why you want it, how you get it, and more.
This talk will cover some of the more surprising insights, including what makes a code metric valuable, when unmaintainable code may be preferable, and the number one thing that prevents most developers from maintaining quality code over time. There will be plenty of time for Q&A throughout, so come prepared to discover and discuss.
