TL;DR: We’ve released an ebook, free to download for all: Software Metrics: A Practical Guide for the Curious Developer. It’s for developers in a hurry — or their managers — who want a practical list of useful software metrics and to get work done. If debugging is the process of removing software bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in. Edsger Dijkstra. Is your code tested? Is it readable? How easy is it to add or modify code without introducing bugs?

A great compiled list of Scala resources to kickstart your learning. At Codacy we chose Scala to build our infrastructure. But not all the engineers that we hire are Scala experts. Scala isn’t hard to learn, and good engineers usually pick it up very quickly. We’ve tried a lot of resources and here is a quick overview of what we recommend to learn Scala.

Etiquette is important for several reasons, one of them being that if you don’t abide by it, no one else will enjoy being around you. With code review, not abiding to etiquette means that people will not enjoy reviewing your code, sending code your way for reviewal, or both.

The person writing the code should have in mind that it will be reviewed by a human being and as such should try and make that person’s job easier.

Growing up in the 90s was pretty great. It was the time of Yo-yo’s, Tamagotchis, Super Soakers and countless other hypes. These would often take the world by storm in a couple of months, only to disappear shortly after. But one of them ended up being the highest-grossing media franchise of all time, making over $55 billion in the last two decades. Released in Japan in 1996, Pokémon Red and Green were a smash hit.
