Using forensic style techniques we'll look into a couple of existing code bases (Apache Flex and Flex JS) and through it's version control history we'll try and uncover where future bugs may lie and gain other other insights into it's structure and quality. Topics covered include hot spot analysis from version control history, various forms of simple but accurate complexity analysis, how to detect hidden temporal coupling in a code base, mapping your code's architecture, generating interactive knowledge maps and looking at code churn and what that means.
