Software Design X-Rays (Pragmatic Bookshelf)
Monday, 05 November 2018

This book has the subtitle "Fix Technical Debt with Behavioral Code Analysis", and author Adam Tornhill aims to demonstrate novel ways to identify and prioritize technical debt, based on behavioral data from how developers work with code. He shows how to use statistics and data science to uncover both problematic code and the behavioral patterns of the developers who build your software, then how to use these insights to prioritize refactoring needs, measure their effect, find implicit dependencies between different modules, and automatically create knowledge maps of your system based on actual code contributions.
