[Webinar] Continuous Quality (CQ): Check the quality of your RPG source code, automatically

Deadlines and other pressures can cause developers to implement the quickest and easiest solution rather than the best overall solution.  Complexity builds up over time and renders the source code fragile and difficult to maintain.  This creates a “technical debt” which spikes the cost of development and is a major cause of application errors and downtime.

Prevention is always better, and less costly, than a cure…  This session explores techniques for automating continuous source code quality checks as an integral part of the software lifecycle.

As part of your DevOps initiative, learn how to define your own coding standards and automatically detect quality issues at the earliest possible stage, before the application is even built.
