All code contains bugs. Some of those bugs are security bugs and organizations must find them and fix them. In our recent Dev TechTalk event, we talked about the benefits of using code scanning technology and how an automated tool can tirelessly look for simple bugs and errors and alert the developer to fix it. Let’s take a deeper dive into those benefits:
- Increase Productivity – Automate your reviews and focus on things that matter.
- Track & Control Quality – Maintain the quality of your code throughout the development process.
- Enhanced Security – Code is automatically reviewed, and bugs are found/fixed before deployment
- Faster, Cleaner, Better Code – Continuous inspection of code quality and security gives DevOps teams the ability to develop faster, cleaner, and better code.
Why is it important?
Salesforce is one of the most important platforms that enterprises use for business operations and customer relationship management. Salesforce has a vast number of features and functionality but deploying on this platform can be difficult. The ability to review code can be a jumbled mess in some orgs and become very overwhelming for the development team. Having a platform, like Flosum, that automatically runs a code scan with every change, it monumental – just set it and forget it. Developers now have someone on their team, looking out for them, making sure they are only pushing the best and error-free code to production.
The bottom line
Code scanning technology help developers find bugs and errors. They can take over the tedious and time-consuming task of combing through thousands of lines of code, so the developers can focus on fixing the bugs and even have time to focus on innovating. Developers will still need to manually check the findings and make sure everything is working, but code scanning has proven to save developer’s time.
