We employ clear code quality metrics to measure the software.

Code quality can have a major impact on software quality, on the productivity of software teams, and their ability to collaborate. Quality impacts how safe, secure, and reliable your codebase is. But how can you measure code quality, to determine if your code is worth its salt?

Key Code Quality Aspects to Measure:

Reliability

Reliability measures the probability that a system will run without failure over a specific period of operation. We use the reliability metrics to see how long a system can run without failures to reduce the application downtime and check how it functions under high loads.

Performance efficiency

We test the performance efficiency to ensure the system responsiveness to execute any action within a given period. It helps us to understand the capacity limit of the system, and how long the system can handle a certain load without performance deterioration.

Security

We run security checks to ensure the system can protect information from software breaches and prevent information loss. We determine a security level by the number of vulnerabilities detected and the time needed to fix any vulnerability issue.

Maintainability

Code maintainability is a qualitative measurement of how easy it is to make changes, and the risks associated with such changes. We make sure the system can be updated and adapted for other purposes, transferred from one development team to another, and meet the requirements of a new business without complications.

How we improve the quality of code:

  • Use a coding standard.
  • Analyze code — before code reviews.
  • Follow code review best practices.
  • Refactor legacy code (when necessary).


Plus, we'll be able to monitor the quality of codebase over time by integrating QA processes into the development cycle.
