As a startup working with a team that is thousands of miles away, there are many things that one needs to take care of – Timezone, communication, reporting, etc. Code Quality is a similarly important factor in a successful offshore journey. Ensuring that quality of code remains high helps avoid rework and mitigates product development risks.
Ensuring code quality is a problem that has several aspects connected to it such as attention to detail, right approach, and understanding of tasks. To be able to take care of these aspects is the ultimate win for team leaders and project owners. Managing code quality means making the team self-reliant and organized.
Let us see, what is code quality, how it is ensured with automation, and what are its best practices.
Code quality is a subjective matter and can be understood from various contexts. For different developers working in different ecosystems, the parameters of code quality could be different. A good or high-quality code, in general, is a clean code that stands up to most of the tests it is put forward to and certainly lasts long. A simple test of good code is if the developer himself and the team can understand the code after 3 months.
The main properties of a good quality code are:
The whole team, i.e. the delivery manager, tester, and developer need to invest time to ensure quality in code because if left unattended, poorly written code can grow to a size where it cannot be fixed, it just has to be scraped off.
There are many advantages of adopting a CI/CD pipeline to your process.
If you were to check 5 boxes every day or 100 boxes on one day, In which scenario would you be able to manage better? CI/CD exactly does that for your software development process.
CI/CD is a shortened feedback loop used to help companies to deliver software while minimizing the flaws in it.
A solid CI/CD pipeline gives peace of mind to all stakeholders. Since the code will not get deployed if tests fail or code is not executed, the process reduces the chances of bugs and downtime. The test cases written in advance, enforce a benchmark to be followed by the developers. It is necessary to utilize CI/CD tools to be able create a method in your team for quicker deployments and testing.
