What is Code Refactoring?

In the simplest of words, code refactoring is a process that works around restructuring and editing an existing code without bringing a change in its functioning. In this process, the external behavior of the code remains the same.

All the changes are made only in the internal structure of the code. This process is undertaken to make the code more maintainable and clean as the sooner the errors are spotted, the better!

In terms of computer programming and software design, the term “refactoring” refers to a transformation where the behavior of the code is preserved. …


How to improve Code Quality: A short analysis

Code quality distinguishes between positive (high quality) and poor (low quality) code.

Quality, good, and bad are both subjective concepts. Depending on the situation, different teams can use different meanings. For an automobile engineer, high-quality coding can mean different things. For a web application creator, that may mean something entirely different.

As a consequence, we’ll go over what code quality is, how to boost it, what the most relevant code quality indicators are, and how code quality software can help.

Some major blunders that should be considered and avoided to improve Code Quality

It means that you have unit testing, that such checks are centralized, and that your implementations have some form…


Code review is a crucial process to build the functionality and success of any project of a remote team. The quality of the code would probably make or break your project. Irrespective of the location and time zones of the teams, the process of reviewing the code cannot be eliminated. In today’s corporate space, distributed and separated teams are no exceptions. Thanks to the emerging technologies and modern working practices, operating remotely, whether from home or an overseas office has become the new standard. This presents a new challenge for teams to master. …


With that said, one way to spot mistakes in the code produced and to improve the quality of the same is through the means of code review. Code review can be understood as a systematic process of evaluating and checking the code produced at the development stage. This analysis of the code is an ideal way for the written code to be seen by four or more eye principles offering a wide array of perspectives and opinions.

Different organizations and people have different definitions of code reviews. It is not a stringent, fixed process that demands a proper format or…


Amid all the chaos, startup teams still need to be self- organized, making sure that the different moving parts work in cohesion. Developers need to build code pieces that work together with each other. Hence, a standard practice has to be created within the team to follow in terms of how the code is written.

This is accomplished, in part, with code reviews. Code review helps developers find anomalies and course corrections to build the right foundation for a startup.

Reviewing the developed codes is like a routine process that is followed in all organizations and businesses. The process of code reviewing, the frequency at which codes are reviewed, and the importance given to the process depends on each organization. These criteria do not have fixed and standard values as each organization work in its own unique way. Before going to other factors, understanding what exactly code review becomes important. Well, again, the understanding and definitions of code reviews may change for different organizations and individuals but the below mentioned is our version of the understanding of code reviews.

The code review process is one of those processes that differs from team to team and different standards set by developers. It is a complex process, as seen in an earlier blog, and hence needs a code review checklist that every organization must follow before performing a code review.

This checklist is made for beginners as well as expert developers, stating necessary and an ideal list to do a code review process. This list is language-neutral, and you can use it for most programming languages without having to create significant changes. We made this code review checklist according to the…


Legacy Code! Any developer’s fear, distaste, and disappointment. A term that must have gotten your attention at some point in your work life. Well, this expression is not as scary as it may sound. The only thing that makes it scary is the varied meanings it has. Different people and companies use and perceive this term differently. You probably cannot blame them for the same as defining it is pretty tricky.

Some people say it is the code acquired from someone else, others say it is the code written by someone else. …


Programmers are not only limited to just developing code that works but also to write optimized code, one that is well-formatted so that your team or the people that work with it afterward, can comprehend it easily. To ascertain that your code is well written, organizations follow a code review policy. Code review is the act of systematically convening with one’s fellow programmers to check each other’s code for mistakes.

Code review has been repeatedly shown to accelerate and streamline the process of software development. …


All you need to know about automated code reviews

Automated code review platforms reply to static code analysis (also called static analysis or source code analysis). This type of analysis addresses weaknesses in source code that might lead to vulnerabilities. Of course, this may also be achieved through manual code reviews, using automated tools is much more effective . Static analysis is commonly used to make code comply with coding guidelines. Compared to dynamic code analysis that runs the tests during unit testing, static code analysis is performed during the non-runtime environment (more about it later). There are several benefits of static code analysis especially if you need the…
