“Helping to understanding technical debt”

OverallThe highest risks in the code base lead directly to quality problems in production. Finding these is made considerably easier with CS. In addition, refactoring away from a monolithic design is eased considerably with this this tool. We use the tool in both weekly analysis mode and as part of the CI pull requests to identify risky commits.
ProsThe visualisation and prioritisation of code helps teams understand the magnitude of the task before them and guides them on how to choose where to start.
ConsSometimes the user interface is not the most intuitive. Also, pervious versions lacked tools for easy imports for large organisations.

“Insights like never seen before”

OverallI have used CodeScene both for product development (on-going analysis) and one off analyses for projects we have been on, and the results always tell us something. In one case it helped us predict which component of our project was going to delay the product release!! With CodeScene it took us a few seconds to see how obvious it was, but it was not obvious to the developers and the Project Manager without CodeScene. Unlike many other static analysis tools, CodeScene does not require a lengthy setup or integration process - you just point it at your Git repository and it provides immediate insights. Their support team is also really good at replying, and the founder, is an exceptional person. I am hugely fond of the tool, and the company and their pricing model behind it encourage me to use it even more. I would recommend that everyone working on a large project (>10 developers) run their code through CodeScene.
ProsSuper easy to setup and get results - just point it at your Git repos! Insights are unique and always provide a perspective that I have not seen anywhere before For developing microservices, this is one of the only out of the box approaches for identifying architectural dependencies (through temporal coupling)
ConsThe tool could do with some maturity on the server side, but as it is quite simple and deployable in a Docker container, this is not really an issue

“A new standard for quality assurance”

OverallI am really satisfied with CodeScene becuase it is more than just a static analysis tool, it provide and overview of the real problemens and what to focus on in am easy-to-use package.
ProsThe whole idea of using historical data, together with the different features CodeScene offers, makes it much easier to guide your improvement work and improve the quality of your code base, including your test code. By starting on a high level you get a good overview of the most problematic areas and the you can drill down and look at the details and see where your real problems are. Combined with trend analysis, code biomarkers and other features like analyzing social interaction between teams, i.e. are they all over the place or in their own modules, makes it a very versatile tool when working with quality. When I was working on my Ph.D. thesis I wanted to develop a tool that could visualize the problematic areas in an intuitive way. Now, twenty years later it actually is here!
ConsIt does not get any better than the data you are using. If you have not commented your pull requests or check-ins correctly, to be able to trace e.g. defects in certain areas, then it will of course be difficult to make any conclusions.

“Enabled my team to be faster”

OverallI really like the Delivery Performance functionalities that allows me to rapidly visualize and act on the most important lead time metrics such as Lead Time for Changes or Planned vs Unplanned work. This insight and the possibility to quickly identify areas in our code with highest technical debt and complexity, areas that leads to quality issues, is a killer feature
ProsThe possibility to connect the history of your code with business metrics that allows you to drive and push for increased speed as this is increasingly more important going forward.
ConsThe user interface could be more intuitive.
