Talk: Measuring Maintainability; Software metrics explained

In a world of ever-changing business requirements, how can you keep your software moving at the same pace?


If you keep adding lines of code around the previous iteration to add new functionality, things can become complex quite fast.

By measuring complexity, you can resolve and prevent bugs, while measuring class responsibility can make refactoring easier, for example.

In this talk I will go through certain concepts of analysing software with automated tools to spit out numbers which tell a story about your code.
