Good morning Paul,

I didn't take the time yet to go through the Codacy pages, sorry ;)

Since for me code review is something with a very intensive human factor, I was wondering how Codacy contributes or enables to this process.

Thank you, kind regards,

Hello Yvette,

thanks for your question!
Code Reviews are indeed something with an intensive human factor, and this is exactly what we are trying to change

Today Code Reviews are mainly about enforcing: best practices, code style, basic security or performance issues etc. We believe that's a waste of time and that code reviews should only be focused on deeper security or architectural concerns.
Our product tries to automate your code reviews by taking out of the code review process all these issues that you would have to find manually. For example, if you're reviewing code on Github we will automatically comment on the line of code where issues are found.
We focus on the new static analysis/linting issues introduced in every commit or pull request as well as the impact on code coverage, code complexity or code duplication.

I hope this answers your question.

Paul

Hello Paul,

It does thanks. I have another question in mind for which I'll open another topic.

See you in the other topic ;)
