What: "A Comparison of Open Source and Commercial Static Analysis Solutions – A Case of Apples and Oranges"
When: Monday, October 21, 2013, 3:20 PM GMT
Where: Edinburgh International Conference Centre
Who: Zack Samocha, Senior Director of Products for Coverity
The presentation will discuss the most common defects found in open source code, based on the Coverity Scan® service analysis of more than 300 million lines of code in more than 600 open source projects, including Linux, Python and ANTLR. It will also examine and compare the defects found in Jenkins using a variety of open source and commercial static analysis solutions.
In 2006, the Coverity Scan service was initiated with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as the largest public-private sector research project in the world, focused on open source software quality and security. Coverity now manages the project, providing its development testing technology as a free service to the open source community to help them build quality and security into their software development process.
