Making the invisible visible

Reviewed 3 years ago

Just recently I had the privilege of doing a formal analysis of the code base of the client using CodeScene. I spent two days analysing the code base of around 35 active developers. The company wanted to see if some of the difficulties they had could be better understood by looking at the code and more importantly by looking at the interaction patterns with the code. My peers were thrilled at the...

Pros

Otherwise almost invisible information is pulled up right into our face The incredible insight it gives into the pain points of the project in a very short time. That it focuses on only the most costly problems It's focus is not only code, but also team dynamics, delivery dynamics and architecture. I don't know of other tools that look at Change Coupling Very visual

Cons

The UX is sometimes confusing, this is probably where there's most room for improvement.

CodeScene Provides Actionable Insights

Reviewed 4 months ago

CodeScene as a company has been highly responsive to my input over the whole course of my engagement with them. My suggestions based on real-world usage contributed to improvement in the products. Throughout my entire engagement, the CodeScene team has stayed highly engaged to make sure I was getting the most out of the product. Opening the tool for the first time was a truly exciting experience, and the more I learned, the more excited and empowered I got.

Pros

CodeScene gave me a view of the code base in a way that no other tool - or person - could. It helped me understand where our quality issues really came from, and to redirect my team to focus on remediating those areas. This not only improved quality but helped make sure we were focused on the most refactoring value.

Cons

There aren't a lot of downsides to this tool. The subject matter requires a lot of knowledge that takes time to attain. This is to say you have to understand the theory behind the insights to get the most value out of them. However, I'd argue that any engineering manager -should- understand this theory if they want to be effective at managing any code base. It shows up all the meaningful metrics I'd always hoped for and never knew existed.

One of the best code quality controlling software!

Reviewed a month ago

CodeScene is one of the best visual tools to identify pull requests that leads to technical debts.

Pros

The most important thing about Codescene is that it allows the software development team to remove technical debts from the source code that can severely impact the performance of the software system later.

Cons

It was indeed quite difficult to remove all the technical debts all at once and when we use this tool our release frequency decreased.

New insights into your code and organization

Reviewed 2 years ago

Above all else, I appreciated that CodeScene would provide data to check my instincts about where and when to apply more effort to improve a design. As a developer, CodeScene’s hot spot feature helped me feel more confident (or helped me find another candidate) when I identified an area to improve. As a team manager, the metrics and graphs in CodeScene gave our team a way to monitor progress as we worked on a several week effort to make small, incremental improvements to a tricky area of code.

Pros

CodeScene gave us a new insight into a problematic area of our code - team structure. We identified a hotspot that continued to grow as we added new features. The Team Dynamics views highlighted an issue that kept the hotspot growing; several teams contributed equally to the code - a case of a missing shared mental model and lack of clear stewardship. The information generated by CodeScene helped...

Cons

We used the hosted solution (codescene.io) which tended to lag the on-premises version and get the newest features later. We were unable to use some of the delivery-focused features as we used Pivotal Tracker and later Clubhouse, neither of which were supported at the time. The UI was sometimes hard to get a summary of the information we needed, though that has improved with the Hotspots Code Health view.

The right way to manage technical debt.

Reviewed 3 years ago

CodeScene prioritises the biggest bottlenecks in our projects. It finds the code improvements that give the biggest improvement in the development and maintenance of our codebases. We use CodeScene to XRAY our codebases quickly and improve the structure of our code and sometimes even the structure of our teams. We use it as a guide for work conversations and code / project reviews and to assess (external) codebases. The super easy setup, leading to detailed insights, led to explosive growth of the service within our company. We didn't have to put a lot of effort into the adoption; CodeScene sells itself.

Pros

Running an analysis with minimal configuration (the repository path and a branch) already gives a lot of insight. By fine-tuning the configuration and including external information from Gitlab and Jira (among others) the CodeScene analysis will provide even more insight. I love the ability to quickly zoom in and out from architecture level to code level and back again.

Cons

Although most developers really like the CodeScene perspective on their codebase, it's sometimes hard to follow up with improvements. With the integration into build pipelines, the code supervision functionality, the reports, monitors and the actionable improvement advice, this issue is mostly solved.

Improving developer productivity through data driven decisions

Reviewed a year ago

CodeScene has helped us find ways to improve the productivity of our development teams and measure our success. Ultimately improving how quickly we can deliver value to the business.

Pros

The recent addition of delta analysis and hooks into our CI/CD tooling has got to be my favourite feature. It has allowed us to incorporate analysis results into our software development life cycle. This has really improved the way insight from the tool is fed back into our teams as continuous, bit sized chucks of information. This helps keep teams engaged and proactively looking for further insight from the tools many other features.

Cons

Integrating with other CI/CD tooling can be tricky and has previously required lots of further setup. Some of the analyses do attempt to mine data from free text, so they require some more complex setup to attempt to capture conventions used by the teams and their git tooling. However, the CodeScene team have always been very responsive to feedback and continuing to improve the product to make these things easier.

Vendor response

Thanks a lot for your review, Patrick! Highly appreciated! I particularly like your observations around the CI/CD integration. This is a prioritised area for CodeScene that we will continue to evolve. We believe in pushing relevant information to existing developer workflows. That way, the information is available when it's needed the most which in turn makes it actionable. Once again: thanks!! /Adam Tornhill, CTO & Founder

Enabled my team to be faster

Reviewed 3 years ago

I 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

Pros

The 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.

Cons

The user interface could be more intuitive.

A new standard for quality assurance

Reviewed 3 years ago

I 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.

Pros

The 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!

Cons

It 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.
