One of the most common question I have to answer software engineers when talking about Codacy is “Automated Code Reviews? Really? How can this work?”.
(Peer) Code Reviews established itself as one the common best practice in modern software engineering workflows. But if you ask engineers they will tell you that most of the time code reviews are about enforcing best practices, code style, and common security issues. 100% of those issues can be found by static analysis and linting tools. In this article, we will see how you can use static analysis to save up to 70% in code review time. (more…)
