SciTools Understand DevOps 2022

Next Generation Development with Historical DevOps

When looking at code, “100% of existing issues are in the current version of the code.”. DevOps and legacy static code analysis can show every detectable defect in the current build, delivering on their promises about better software quality. But what about looking at it differently for a moment: “100% of the current defects come from something someone did.”. Can we learn something interesting from a software’s history? Is counting changed lines the best we can do without jeopardizing DevOps agility? Is it possible to do better? To know better?

In this seminar, we will create a time machine using Historical DevOps methodology with SciTools, way beyond a simple git-like line-by-line comparison.
Why? Because most software professionals face challenges that can easily be solved by looking at the past:

  • Code is more accessible if you know how someone wrote it
  • Fixing software that someone broke is easier if you can see what they did
  • Testing is faster and more accurate if you identify and focus on what has changed
  • Qualifying risk is inaccurate without enough data
  • Learning from a mistake is more challenging if you don’t see when it happened

We will demonstrate how to use SciTools Understand to create a “structural history” of source code without impacting existing DevOps strategies. In a few steps:

  • Using SciTools Understand in Jenkins Pipeline
  • Change & History features in Understand 6.2
  • Creating an advanced dashboard highlighting historical information
  • Decision-making using Historical DevOps concepts
