TechNet Webcast: How Microsoft IT Uses Visual Studio Team System 2005 to Measure Software Code Stability (Level 300)
A strategic initiative within Microsoft IT is to improve the overall productivity, quality, and predictability of internal software development projects. Microsoft IT partnered with Microsoft Research to create a Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2005 extension that counts lines of code and predicts system defects. In the software development environment, insight into the volume of code being produced, and the changes applied to that code, provide measurements of productivity and quality. This webcast shows how the Line of Code (LOC) counter provides a flexible and extensible framework for automating the LOC counting process.
