Carmack on Static Code Analysis Tools
« on: December 18, 2012, 07:29:56 AM »
I was using JSHint today and found:

  John Carmack on static code analysis tools - QuakeCon '11 keynote

via:

  The About page for JSHint



I'm not sure if the following is a transcript, but there appears to be much overlap:

  Static Code Analysis by John Carmack @ #AltDevBlogADay

Watched it from the marked point and to the end - decent enough view. Carmack might not be as influential as he used to be (imho RAGE wasn't... all the rage, and looked kinda dull even compared to what can be done with the Crytek engine), but he's still a very skilled guy, and it's nice seeing him praise static code analysis. There's also a decent blog post to read.

Aaaaand... *drumroll* - Microsoft are being nice. Yep, /analyze in the free VC2012 Desktop Express.
