    The ubiquitous nature of embedded software has made source code analysis a critical component of the development process. Klocwork CTO Gwyn Fisher discusses the impact this technology has on software security and reliability, and emphasizes the importance of making static analysis a natural part of a developer’s coding practice. ECD: As embedded developers turn to multicore processors to optimize performance, how can analysis tools help control inevitable cost and schedule problems? FISHER: Any new development is an exercise in balancing expectation against risk. In the case of multicore, the naive expectation is always linear acceleration

  • Methods and Tools: Delivering Working Code through Automation and Collaboration

    on Sep 20, 10 • by Lynn Gayowski • with No Comments

    To keep pace with ever-increasing customer demands on software functionality and time-to-market expectations, software developers have had to evolve the way they develop code. The result is the emergence and rapid adoption of the Agile software development methodology. By embracing the ‘early and often’ mantra of Agile, individual software teams and even entire software development organizations can deliver more technology, to more satisfied customers, earlier and more frequently than ever before. However, the reality for many teams trying to successfully execute on the Agile principles is a backlog of software defects interfering with their ability
