Code Analysis with Dan Silivestru and Gord Tanner
Code analysis tools can help a developer understand code. One tool for code analysis is bitHound, which provides code and dependency analysis for NodeJS applications. On today’s episode, we discuss how to use a code analysis tool–and we also talk about how to build one, by breaking down the distributed architecture of bitHound’s backend.
- What is code analysis?
- Why is dependency analysis so important in Node applications?
- What are the challenges associated with building bitHound?
- Can you describe how you designed your master-slave architecture?
- What are your thoughts on the build vs buy debate?
