Best Practices – Code Coverage Metrics

best-practices-code-coverageThis is part one in a four part Best Practices For .NET Code Coverage webinar series focused on using code coverage metrics to guide development efforts and improve overall code quality. We explain the importance of selecting the right combination of metrics to measure the effectiveness of your testing strategies and the quality of your code base and how it is a first, but extremely crucial, step in using code coverage within your organization.

In addition to explaining three important code coverage metrics, Branch Coverage, Sequence Point Coverage and Change Risk Anti-Patterns, we discuss our recommended best practices for using them as part a core set of metrics, whose trends are monitored over time, to ensure that you have the best insights possible for ensuring that your code, your testing strategies and ultimately your entire application, will perform as expected.
