April 7: Making Static Analysis Part Of Your Build Process with Find Bugs

13 Mar

Title: Making Static Analysis Part Of Your Build Process

Speaker: William Pugh, Professor, University of Maryland

Abstract:

FindBugs is a static analysis tool that finds coding mistakes in Java programs.
While many individuals and small projects use FindBugs, many large projects
and companies have failed to successfully incorporate it into their software
development process, despite its ability to find hundreds of serious coding mistakes
in their code base. I’ll discuss at the role of static analysis in software development,
the issue of “harmless” coding mistakes, tools and techniques for getting the most
bang for your buck with static analysis, and how to convince your team to effectively adopt
static analysis for defect detection
