I recently did an interview with Anatharam Chadalavada, A Microsoft IT Senior Program Manager on how "Microsoft IT uses Visual Studio Team System to Measure Software Code Stability".
Yeah, yeah, yeah……more developery kinda stuff. But it sounded interesting to me so I offered to do it. One of these days I may actually install Visual Studio and write a "Hello World!" app…..
The interview focuses on a particular tool called the LOC or Lines of Code counting tool. You can find a version of the tool for Visual Studio 2005 here. What made this interesting to me is that based upon the numbers of lines of code, you can somewhat predict what the error rate might be and associate a cost with it on how long and what resources would have to be committed to resolving those issues.
The interview and past interviews can be found at the TechNet Radio site. Or, you directly grab the interviews below —
